Re: how things should be shipped properly

Nothing is ever foolproof though, one time a system I sent to Italy was wrecked because (I was told) a forklift in a warehouse shoved one of its fork prongs right through the box. When I got my IntelliStation, it was new in the box. It has suffered the same fork through box problem. My heart froze....

Re: Monitor suggestions for high-DPI experiment

I managed to come up with a way to reproduce what I mean, with a single screen: 1. Set your computer to 125% or 150% scaling. 2. Log out, log in. 3. Set the scaling back to 100%, don't log out. This is how every single application looks on my secondary screen when I have a scaled and a non-scaled sc...

Re: Monitor suggestions for high-DPI experiment

MS software (office, etc) works well. Not quite... My work machine is a W10 machine. Whenever I'm out of the office, i have the 1920x1080p 15-inch screen of my laptop set to 125% scaling. When I dock it, I add a 1920x1200 24-inch screen set to 100%. Whenever I move any Microsoft Office screen from ...

Re: Monitor suggestions for high-DPI experiment

The IBMT221 is certainly gorgeous, would be great for photos/images, but I find myself enlarging text on 1920x1080 displays (I end up like this :shock:, but without the 'shock' factor), so don't know if I would really be able to appreciate the finesse for daily usage. OS X and Linux handle scaling ...

Re: Monitor suggestions for high-DPI experiment

Given a lot of the modern crap out there, I'd struggle to replace it as it's not currently possible to buy a 27-28" screen without having to downgrade to 16:9. It's such a pity how poor so many modern screens are. Race to the bottom at its best... Agreed. At work I had a T61 with a 1680x1050 s...

Re: is something going wrong with the movie industry?

The Circle, everything in had been done before (in a series called Black Mirror (UK Channel 4 Films I think). It seemed to me (and I don't know for a fact) that this was based on a good book and the translation to film just didn't work. No effort was put into the character relationships and explosi...

Re: Monitor suggestions for high-DPI experiment

It weights 10kg. It's not super heavy for something that is moved only eventually, but I'd not be moving it all the time. It's unnecessarily heavy. The stand is metal, it's cold to the touch. The articulation to adjust the screen angle is stainless steel and it is firmer than my office screen built ...

No problem at all. I'm sure you would be happy with such display. =)
Per-app scaling settings are very convenient.

I'll send later on a picture of how it looks like. It's perfectly fine at 200% zoom.

Re: is something going wrong with the movie industry?

I'm a very amateur movie appreciator, but I've noticed that Hollywood goes in cycles (with some overlap in between): - A couple of years of war movies (Soldier Ryan, for example, part of that cycle), then you have war movies every few months. - Then a couple of years of epic fantasy stuff (Lord of T...

Re: Monitor suggestions for high-DPI experiment

I may not be able to fix it, but what goes wrong? (Screenshot?) You don't need to worry. Quartz Debug allows you to control scaling on a per-application basis, so I just set TenFourFox to the standard scaling and then the content to 200% zoom. Unless, of course, now you are REALLY going to get a di...
