Dad's New Setup
Many people's Dads appear to have decent PCs, either inspired by their son's or they are the inspirer themselves. My Dad is the latter, as he introduced me to the world of PCs and technology. I suppose I could blame him then for the 5 PCs I have lying around, with a 6th in progress.
I went home for the Easter weekend, mainly to check out his new setup, but also for the family time. I knew he had ordered a brand new Dell 3007, which I believe cost just under £900 inc. delivery, from eBay. But he'd also purchased a new set of Logitech Z-5500's to compliment the huge monitor.
The picture doesn't do the setup justice, but it'll suffice. The LCD itself is very crisp, clear and bright - and although it's one of the biggest for PCs, it doesn't seem too ostentatious. In fact, it fits in very well with the rest of the black/silver hardware - the Logitech Z-5500's; a Saitek Keyboard and Microsoft Mouse; the Lian-Li silent case...
The speakers sound fantastic too and are on my wishlist from this day forward. They'd be ideal both in a PC setup, but also in the living room for 5.1 THX movie madness.
Oh, and the 2560x1600 resolution of the 30" 3007 is outstanding. You could fit 3 browser windows side-by-side and still have enough room for Vista's sidebar, full of gadgets. I believe he'll be putting one of his 19" LCDs alongside it in the near future, but that may end up as a second 3007...
