asciilifeform: even 'eizo' et al.
phf: i bought a barely used eizo cg243w from a russian guy. it was one of his last possessions (no work and didn't want to become a "corporate whore"), and he talked about how quality of everything went down and keeps going down and that you really only can trust 2009 hardware at the latest. i wonder if there are more people like that hoarding their prized bolix, but without yet hitting the necessity to sell one.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: depending how you cut it, varies . e.g. my 'eizo' has a 'byteness' of 14 bits ( per channel )
asciilifeform: which basics. i import eizo here too, they aren't born in usa
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i was apparently wrong, eizo S2133-BK is still made & sold
asciilifeform: (for the eizo), tube was moar
pete_dushenski: phf: fair enough. i actually use acd+eizo(prosumer) combo at home. it's definitely a minefield but i'm very much content with the ev2455 or whatever its called.
pete_dushenski: phf: fwiw the eizo 16:10 trio that kicked out my office samsungs cured my daily headaches.
asciilifeform: also eizo is pretty neat but the 3k one not the 300 one.
pete_dushenski: asciilifeform: why couldn't you have figured this out before last christmas ? first it's the amazing pogo, then the amazing eizo... AND NOW IT'S NEITHER
asciilifeform: pete_dushenski may be interested in my discovery today that 'nec' makes quite usable 'eizo's.

cazalla: asciilifeform, pete_dushenski aren't those eizo ev2455 eye strain city with a 60hz refresh rate? prefer 120hz/144hz master race here
pete_dushenski: it's like whining that eizo doesn't make 40" vertical monitors with 1mm bezels

pete_dushenski: http://www.contravex.com/2016/01/19/eizo-ev2455-bk-unboxing/ << as hard to believe as this may be, this was in the works ~before~ mircea_popescu published his computer pics post today. i swear, you guys. you gotta believe me. I'M NOT MINI-MP OMGAWD.
pete_dushenski: also because asciilifeform is the eizo nazi
assbot: FlexScan EV2730Q | EIZO ... ( http://bit.ly/1O8hEN9 )
ascii_field: eizo and barco.
punkman: eizo has a square monitor btw
mircea_popescu: jurov if i was looking to buy one. but as it is, fuck it, what can he do if it turns out to be a dud, make the eizo ceo do my dishes ?
mircea_popescu: ascii_field maker of "eizo whatever" is as much in my wot has lg.
ascii_field: then buy eizo colouredge.
ascii_field: hey even i can afford a eizo
cazalla: i believe there are some 144hz aroud now, and that eizo is 240hz which would be awesome but a bit $$$ unless you have aspirations of the pros or something
cazalla: ya know i looked up those eizo monitors.. they have a gaming monitor.. for like 2k, decided i was not that much of a gamer
pete_dushenski: maybe that'll be the day i can afford eizo monitors like that rich man stan
asciilifeform: kakobrekla: on eizo ?!
kakobrekla: i bet even 'eizo' drift over time

pete_dushenski: https://luminous-landscape.com/eizo-coloredge-cg301w-vs-the-apple-30/ << "And I cannot emphasize enough what a difference it makes to be able to sit in front of a display for many hours without experiencing the typical eye strain and user fatigue." << hm. photographer/phd physicist who switched from acd to eizo.
asciilifeform: one more thing 'eizo' got right.
kakobrekla: asciilifeform correct, so i guess the bent thing isnt really why you buy 'eizo' only :)
asciilifeform: the only two makers of lcd that i ever saw making anything other than disposable garbage are eizo and barco.
asciilifeform: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=16-09-2015#1276242 << THIS is why i only buy 'eizo' panels. ☝︎
ascii_field: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=14-09-2015#1273667 << if it addresses 128GB of ECC RAM, and drives my wall of 'eizo's, then i'm in. ☝︎
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: unless you have a 'eizo' or 'barco', those numbers have very tenuous relation to physical reality
ascii_field: idk about this 'enchroma', but i got the opposite: my 'eizo' lcd panels have a button that selectably simulates two types of colour blindness...
asciilifeform: thinking of buying three more of the gdm-5402 and replacing my 'eizo's
ascii_field: e.g., lightly used 'eizo' lcd for 500 instead of 1500
asciilifeform plugged in the two 'eizo' panels spoken of earlier, can actually -feel- the heat now
assbot: Eizo ... ( http://bit.ly/1rPPgFF )
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: http://www.eizo.se/default.aspx?page=11&product=SX2462WF-BK
asciilifeform: eizo, opium of the eye
asciilifeform: lol, i've quite the collection of freshly minted 'paperweights' here (all the retiring non-eizo panels)
decimation: maybe eizo can repair
asciilifeform: so here's a poor man's mega-lol. i buy two 'eizo' sx2462w monsters. both show up, were packed in new, m0d3rn expanding chemical foam. one - properly. other - with all the foam on one side of crate. naturally, frame cracked, 'bullet hole' of dead blue pixel on crystal.
asciilifeform: afaik everything presently on the market, with exception of eizo's 'colour-edge' series, uses dithering.

punkman: I want one of those square LCDs EIZO announced
asciilifeform: 'eizo' makes tolerable lcd.
assbot: RadiForce GX540 | EIZO
decimation: lol http://www.eizo.com/global/products/radiforce/gx540/index.html#tab02 << monitors need to be approved by FDA?
asciilifeform owns a few 'eizo'
asciilifeform: decimation: 'eizo' and 'barco' make almost usable lcds, for those applications
asciilifeform: the proper 'eizo' can be had used/surplus for $1k or so.
asciilifeform: two vendors i know of - 'eizo' and 'barco'
asciilifeform: i'd love to buy an lcd, 2 M or so diagonal. but it would need to have at least the same pixel density as the eizo.
asciilifeform: 27 inch proper 'Eizo'. 600 or so usd, ebay, new. perhaps it 'fell off truck'
