I’d love to have a taller monitor since I use my PC for work. Posts should be about hardware Posts should be about hardware news, reviews, technical discussion or how-tos and buyers guides. However, it would not be easy to setup for a rookie – if you want to use two DVI connectors, the graphics card treats that as two separate screens and you have to span them as one contiguous screen. At least the x86 version which is an exact clone, and apparently works the same way as the dev board is public domain. Neat review of a totally ridiculous product.

You’re used to CRT refresh rates, for one thing. The converter box does not work with earlier revisions of the monitor.

IBM T221 – the world’s finest monitor?

Thus, the ivm transmission rate is decoupled from the refresh rate of the display device. Not sure what the replacement policy is. Plus I can flip the source and use it as a regular TV Strangely enough, as a monitor it seems to work best in “movie mode” with the contrast turned way down. Notable improvements include using only one power adapter instead of two and support for more screen modes. I am writing this on one I got as an early Christmas present.


Fill the field of view, and my flight sim looks amazing. Time for something better than DVI already, perhaps. I recall that this monitor was originally designed for engineers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories who worked obm nukes.

You need a big desk for it so you can sit far, but I can get an amazing amount of stuff on the screen when editing code or documents. Submit a new link.

At this point they match and overtake the best CRT displays in resolution and picture quality, yet with much lower power consumption, less space occupied, no radiation – and better looks!

How do the IBM T/T LCD monitors compare to monitors of today? : hardware

With reduced blanking periods, the single, double, and quad-TMDS-link can obtain Not great for gaming or even desktop use. At least the x86 version which is an exact clone, and apparently works the same way as the dev board is public domain.


Experience I connected the monitor to the reference system – the 3. No content behind paywalls.

No self-edtiorialized titles, just copy the title of the site, with the exception of clickbait titles. Does anyone remember that thing? That monitor is pixel dense but fails in every other aspect when compared to modern monitors.

However, we’ve brought the whole ecosystem forward with more powerful graphics hardware, more robust standards, lbm real software support, so we can actually use a high-density monitor like this to its full potential.
