about to order a 30inch for our multibridge extreme
on Jun 4, 2006 at 6:34:27 am

Hi Guys
We are in the process of ordering a 30 inch for our multibridge extreme. Is the 30inch apple the only serious way to go?

In Australia the dell is $1000 cheaper than the apple. So what should we do. Kristian said in an earlier post that there were performance issues with the dell.

We have already spent 8 grand on this system and it would ne nice to save the extra $1000 and get the dell...but not if it is going to be lame.

Thanks for any help!

the Dell 2405FPW works great, the Apple Cinema 23" works great, the HP L2335 works great, and the Sony SDM-P234b works great. I bet the Apple 23" and Dell 24" are almost the same price.

Correct me if I'm wrong on this, but if the extreme is like the HDLink, it plays out to the monitor pixel to pixel. On a 30" monitor you will have black all around it and it won't fill the screen. The 24" seems to work better.

Am I wrong about this?

Thx.

Kevin

if you order the Multibridge Extreme (and only this model), it will correctly drive the 30" DVI-D dual link monitor. Products like the HD Link WILL NOT drive the 30" monitor correctly.

Hi Kevin,

The Multibridge Extreme will drive the 30" and also provide scaling options to fit the video to the 30"'s screen dimension.
If you intend to move to 2K eventually, the 30" Cinema display will also be required.

I thought the whole point of your post was to save $1000.

the thing is with 30" you get green/blue digital noise on your picture from time to time - at least this is my experience

Hi guys thanks for the replys

Kaspar, Is the green blue digital noise from time to time the only drawback.....Other than that would you say the colour is truthfull to what has been shot? We have seen the apple in person at an apple store but the dell shop here doesnt have them on display so we couldnt check them out in person.

The dell and apple screens are both made by phillips arnt they?

Thanks
Miles and Jules

I don't rember who makes the panels - but both are identical - there is calibration difference apple seems more subtle in crominance while dell seems better at details
as for thruthfulness you have to calibrate it anyaways just dell seems bit more saturated

The film we are making is grungy and dark with mostly subdued colours...most of the time,.... which do you thing would be better suited for us? When we saw the apple we were amazed with the picture qualty....pitty we cant see the dell before buying it.

I think we will go with the dell.

thanks

As a multibridge extreme / Dell flat panel owner I couldn't be more pleased.

Between our sony 900 line sd crt and the Dell lcd we're covered.

I would try the Dell and if you don't like it, return it.

both the Dell and Apple screens are made by LG, not Phillips. The Dell is fantastic, and the Dell has analog HD inputs on the side of the monitor (RCA jacks), so you can take the output of an HD device (like a HDV VTR) and stick it directly into the Dell - can't do that with the Apple.

I have never seen this "blue/green" noise in the Dell.
