Okay I bought the monitor during lunch today. I'm still at work for a couple of hours so I haven't tried it on the SGI yet; I have it hooked up to my PowerBook on my desk at work right now and it's looking pretty nice!

I only have a couple hours at home before I have to go back to work this evening for the maintenance window :(

Edit: Okay, I had a little time this afternoon to try it, and it works great with the Indigo2 - 1600x1200@60Hz.

I've tried several SOG LCD pannels on my Octane, including a KDS Rad5/RadX, and a View Sonic VG150m, neither of which would work. The only PC-based display I've managed to get working with the 13W3 adapter is a View Sonic 19' inch G790. I plan on testing every monitor I can get my hands on, maybe get a little database working.

I about crapped my self when I saw that thing, it would make you want to sit on the other side of the room. You get whiplash just trying to see everything on your desktop.

I could see it being very cool for a flightsim though, or something else you need to have a good pnoramic view.

You can add the Philips 200P3G 20" TFT panel as working; I even took a few pictures of mine this afternoon:

No blurring that I've seen. It's an incredible display ... very sharp and bright.

On that page above ... did you want me to find out at what point the screen becomes dim or something?

You definitely get what you pay for when purchasing an LCD display; The higher-end LCD pannels have almost zero motion blur.

Okay, I just tried it ... went from 100 down to 1 and the page was still clearly visible all the way down. Even at 1 it looks fine, just not very bright.
