  1. OH Sh*t! END OF MARCH! Now I'm in deep trouble...
  2. For the TV Tunner, I got the ATI TV WONDER (not the VE version) and it rocks! I have an SVideo in, RCA in, plus a lot of cables to plug almost whatever I want to it. It isnt expensive, around 110$ Canadian, which means 60 or 70 US...
  3. One of my customer (Store in Montreal, Quebec) is waiting for one, and we have 50 sets ordered...God knows where we are gonna get them, or IF we get them! ------------------ I'm the real Mike, and proud of it!
  4. Sorry to say you are out of subject. Our friend here wanna buy a 19" and $995 US for a monitor.... It's a little expensive, for the price I'm buying a Geforce III!
  5. That's right for the ViewSonic, you actually see thin black lines on the boarder... But hey, shouldnt we look at the center of the screen, and not at the far ends? FEATURES: 18-inch viewable area, .24mm-.25mm varying stripe pitch,3 up to 110-Hz refresh rate,1 Plug and Play ready,2 TCO'99 compliant, three-year warranty, 24-hour toll-free support. SUMMARY: The CPD-E400 produced crisp text and rich, realistic colors, especially in photos. But you can find similar quality at a lower price. That's taken from http://www.pcworld.com, I actually trust a lot this website, and so the E-400 prove not being that great. Plus, I have one in demo in my store and if you ask me, I find nothing spectacular in this one. But it's true I heard very good things about the G400. Just that I never saw it and that it's as we said before, OVERPRICED! And just a question like that, do you really see a big difference between 77 and 85 Hz?
  6. There is one you didnt talk about. I actually find this one totally amazing! Better than any ViewSonic, Sony or what ever monitors. The company is European and is called LaCie. Look at their website http://www.lacie.com They make what they call the ElectronBlue 19" and does the 1600X1200 at 85 Hz. Screen being totally flat plus being blue with a hood on it make it one of the most original, beautiful and technologic screen on the market. Just a thing though, good luck to find one of those! If you are not able to get one, then I really dunno what to tell you. I would buy the PF790, cuz I own a ViewSonic EF70, plus the fact that I sell Samsungs, Sony and Viewsonic at my store. From what I saw, I always prefered ViewSonic for their prices, quality and service. I dont say the others are bad, but I would simply dont go with Sony simply cuz I know we are always paying lot of money for the 4 letters SONY written on the screen. Plus the fact that the controls on it are extremely confusing! Since Samsung got a contract with Apple to make their 17" studio display not long ago, the samsungs tubes are really great quality and for that, I have to admit samsung make really great high end monitors. I actually never heard really great come backs about those though, simply that they are good value and I didnt receive any bad things either. Just to say, forget about LG (no service from this company), DELL (their monitors are always extremely standard), NEC and Mitsubichi are the same and even if they were always great monitors, I'm afraid they are not really in the personnal use market. It seems like Hitachi actually got some good points... But I cant say, they arent sold in Canada. Cornerstone... I actually know that company by name but that's it. Never saw any of those monitors, so I cannot really tell you what I think of them. And for all the techniques (Aperture grid and shadow mask) I really dont know. And it's too late for me to do research about that. So my choice would be Lacie, ViewSonic, Panasonic (I saw the PF90 from them, and for the price, it's AMAZING! but oh well, maybe not professional enough), ans last of all Sony cuz of all the bad points I know of them (overpricing, you can always get better for the same price in an other company and also for their crappy controls). That's about what I think
  7. Plus the fact that Creative Labs was one of the first company (non professional again) to make sound cards... So I trust their work. Hey and by the way, who here never actually got an old SB16 on his first computer....? That sound card rocked for the time!
  8. 1 (425) 635-7040 That is the hardware customer line from MicroSoft. http://support.microsoft.com/directory/directory/phonepers.asp?sd=gn this is the phone number reference page Hard to navigate? Took me 2 minutes
  9. Was that said that the guy who took the pic died from an heart attack right after?
  10. I have the X-Gamer (standard version) and the sound is really great! Plus the fact that I was lucky enough to get gold plated jacks on it. The value is really good also, but still, I would rather spend the money to get the box with all the softwares that come with it. Anyone has tried the ISIS from Guillemot? I wanna know what this sound card sounds like. I can be find at around 400$ canadian. It's not professional, but almost.
  11. Did you realise if the box was ever opened before? Every companies are supposed to use Seals... which means that if the seal was opened, well the blame can be put on either your parents (which would be a little surprising, but oh well....you never know) either by the FedEx (or PurolatOr) guy that wanted them so much that he couldMT resists and just hope that the guy that would receive them sign the paper. And in the case the seal wasnt opened... Well I would be amazed that Klipsch employes begin to steal those, since they surely have really great prices (or even free kits ). Anyway, good luck to find where they are in this tiny world which is the earth. ------------------ I'm the real Mike, and proud of it!
  12. What I mean is in the parties... We put Winamp (the one mostly used) at max and the equalizer really standard ...... I mean, high in the middle and normal at left and right. And the Klipsch was at 75% of volume...Sub was depending on the type of songs...
  13. That topic was already discused about...Look for the post Ultimate Sound Sytem
  14. Hey here is a fun fact... AudioTronic in Ottawa is actually part of Dumoulin in Quebec.. AudioTronic is simply the english part of Dumoulin, and there is only few of those stores... Just in case that you might want to know...
  15. Ever heard the song "Kiss from a rose"? This one is from Seal and has been playing in Batman Forever I think..Oh well anyway... This song isnt actually good for bass at all, but..try to find this : Seal - kiss from a rose - unplugged & acoustic session.mp3 It is supposed to be a slow...but to be honest. You got to remove all bass if you play it or the feeling wont be the same at all..
