You just missed the non-HC model was $60 off last week. :-/
I looked some more in the menus, and there's not a lot in there, but a few interesting items stood out. I mentioned it has both Mac and PC settings, but each setting has a "normal", "blue" and "red" category, which I translate the last two into "cool" and "warm".
A couple other things... I'm using DVI-D from my nVidia card, but there's also composite, s-video, component and of course VGA inputs. It will do Picture in Picture and Picture by Picture with either DVI or VGA as the main source and one of the other 3 as the secondary source. I haven't found any re-size or positioning for the PiP yet... maybe I should crack the manual?
Lastly, I messed with the "Wide Mode" setting. I could only get into this mode if I told my nVidia card not to scale. The mode changes the scaling, which is the way the monitor displays if you sent a signal that's lower than the 1920x1200 native. The 3 settings are 1:1, Aspect and Fill:
-The first mode "1:1" made the image only fill a smaller part of the screen with black around it. But the part of the screen is just as sharp as the native resolution.
-"Aspect" mode stretches the image top to bottom but keeps the intended aspect ration correct, so there may or may not be black bars on the left and right depending on the resolution.
-Lastly, "Fill" mode fills the entire widescreen with whatever resolution is being sent, so images might not have proper proportions.
Of course it's best to send the native 1920x1200 resolution, but it's good to have alternatives if you are hooking up other devices to the monitor.
