    Has anyone who's gotten one of these tried watching a DVD or playing a game in full screen on a 30" monitor w. no scaling chip (ie the HP LP3065)??? Just curious as to whether the quality is good, I hear the scaling on some cards kindof sucks.

    Card + Monitor

    Your lucky I came open this thread. Ya, I have an HP 3065 with the 512 card, and it is AMAZING. Only wish my eyes didn't burn after an hour of use.

    I have the 30" HP LP3065 and 8800GT. All of the mac-standard resolutions show up in the displays panel. The video card is doing the scaling, there's no slowdown that I've noticed, even when 3D gaming at non-native res (1920 x 1200, or even 1600 x 1200). DVDs look great. In the past I've always favored ATI for DVD playback, but this card doesn't disappoint.

    If you don't need any other types of input source (component, etc), this monitor is an excellent choice. Near-black screen, great contrast, none of the graininess that I saw with my Dell 24".
