That's a lot of horizontal pixels. Shame about the vertical pixels. I have more on my 15" laptop.
@piesforyou:Wow, really? What resolution does you laptop screen have? After all, this 27in monitor has a higher vertical pixel count than most 16:10 24in monitors, so it's not too bad...
"..so if you want something that can deal with other sources, the HZ27WA is your only choice from Hazro at 27in."
Sorry if this is a dumb question, but what you're saying is that this monitor can't display any other sources than a PC? As in I can't play my 360 on this? Or are you just saying that you can't calibrate sources other than a PC?
That could definitely be a deal-breaker if the former is the case.
youre laptops probably 1440x990 or even 1920x1080 tops
990 and 1080 is less than 1440.
@piesforyou:Rubbish, show me a 15" laptop with a display above 1920x1080.
I have an Apple Cinema Display I bought about 3 months ago and I'm a bit green as it cost me £740. Though it is pretty much perfect, not a single pixel out, totally uniform brightness and colour.
Wow, people on this thread either have short memories or don't know too much about laptops. Dell and others have offered 1920 x 1200 as at least an option in some of their 15" and 17" laptops for years. Such as the XPS and I believe Inspiron ranges.
I know I have a 5 or 6 year-old XPS Gen 2 sitting on the shelf here with that res. Admittedly, that's a 17" screen, but I believe it was offered in the Studio 15 line recently too.
@Cookie:It's not just calibration, but scaling too. As the display lacks a scaler, anything else that will display will do so at its native resolution. So while you should be able to hook up a console in theory, you would end up with massive black bars on all sides, which is far from ideal.
@MickyG:Their essential point, and mine, is that @piesforyou's laptop must be a time-traveling piece of awesomeness to have a vertical resolution higher than 1440 pixels.
Just bought this today and apparently doesn't work with a Mac. Disappointing.
The glass just came off my display, so I googled it and found this. You say the detached glass "presents a potential safety hazard". Can you explain what you mean by this? I just removed the glass and can't see why it would be unsafe now.
Are you referring to some potential accident when the glass falls off (eg. hitting someone in the head oh noes), or do you mean it's not safe to use without the glass?
Likely that they consider it dangerous that it can fall of at all. Like if it produced shards and hurt someone or a kid flipped the screen over or whatever.
Guess it mean a mac doesn't supply the signal used / Apple suck.
