Still can't get over how tiny those new bluetooth keyboards are. What is that stack on the right side of the desk that is glowing?? Looks cool. Nice desk too!

hey Mike, do you have trouble at all using the mighty mouse on the glossy surface? does your xbox 360 play seamlessly on the dell screen??? what res are you running the xbox at?? sorry for all the questions, its just that i have a 360 and i just ordered a dell monitor and i am wondering how they are. I'm liking the setup.

How do you like the 27" Dell? I was holding out for one for a while and ended up going with the 24".

thanks for you comments everyone: mr56k the stack is a mood light i got from ikea its really great and sets off enough light to see by at night when gaming or working, its a diode light http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40066555 Smiggs, no issues with the mighty mouse on that surface, I was using a mouse pad but didn't need it and took it off the desk, I am running the xbox thru the componet video of the monitor running at 1080i on the xbox settings and it works great! BenTex I am loving the 27"inch monitor!

hey mike, I plugged my 360 into component on the dell screen but it flckers a little bit when playing at 1080i, does yours do that at all???

Never had that issue, runs fine, did you try other settings to see if it runs okay?
smiggs [Oct 29, 2007 at 08:24 AM]
Yeah i tried all the other settings and settled on running at 720p. Thats fine for me, runs perfectly! Thanks mike.
