  • Impressed with the Matrox p650

    I've always heard that Matrox cards were the best for general computing and graphics work (essentially, the best cards for anything but games), but I dismissed a lot of that talk as marketing or fan hysteria or whatever.

    But, I just got a new P650 card, and I must say I can see a visible difference! Everything is brighter, more colorful (even after calibration), sharper, and somehow more...steady (can't explain it, it just looks that way). And I used to have some vague color fringing towards the very top of my monitor, now that's gone.

    Plus I've noticed a marked speedup, and it even seems to have fixed that pesky 'tiny web icons not loading' problem with IE6.

    And I haven't even started exploring the billion-color plugin for Photoshop that ships with it.

    Monitor calibration with Adobe Gamma?
    by Northernshadow
    I don't know much about calibration except if it looks and prints good it must be fine....
    Currently all I have to calibrate is Adobe Gamma, and just bought a Sony LCD HS75P monitor. Setting the black and white points seems to be no problem but I don't think I'm getting the gamma right. Everything...

    Why is it that when the warranty expires so does the product?

    Well my Sony monitor is starting to have loud static-like pops, goes black, then the image returns. I performed a Google search and it didn’t produce promising results. It appears to be a fairly common, although ignored...

    hey hey, I've recently acquired a MBP 15inch i7 with hi res anti glare display.

    this weekend I performed a display calibration using xrite eye1 with both eye1match and coloreyes software, and to my surprise I am getting a slight magenta hue, cool temp looking display.

    Hello all

    I apologize if this question should be in the hardware forum but I really wanted you guys to answer if possible. I do a good bit of restoration work for a local gallery and I will probably need a new monitor soon. My question is (you guessed it) should I stay with a crt or buy...
