...for home use, that is. Forgive me all, for I have sinned. It was a very urgent, impulse purchase as the CRT I'm using now has started to cut out and behave very strangely over the past 48 hours. I've had to order something quick as I can't afford any down time this week. It's a 20" widescreen (2007WFP) and I have a question about it, but first, let me share my thinking on this... I really, really, really tried to like the 20" Apple Cinema Display but for the life of me I just couldn't justify spending £529 (about US$1000) for a 20" monitor when the Dell ended up costing less than half the price at £261.60 (about US$500) including shipping and tax. So I went and ordered it and within hours, I got an email confirmation that it had begun shipping from Ireland with a tentative shipping date and today, I've had two phone calls; one from the courier to nail down an exact delivery time, and one from Dell to confirm the address. I've never had the equivalent level of service when ordering from Apple for corporate orders. Although it'll be mainly used for general home stuff as well as work (print design), it's not intended as a substitute for the work setups where most of my design work gets done. I don't think I'll be buying three Dell 24" or 30"s for the studio come June, somehow... Anyway, so it's on its way and my question is this: It has a couple of USB ports. I presume they're USB2? If they are, will I get USB2 speeds from them if the monitor is linked to the G4 by DVI cable? The reason I ask is that the G4 is a dual 1.4 with USB1 as standard, and if I get a new iPod next year, it won't sync by firewire. So I'm thinking I can possibly avoid buying a USB2 card for the Mac if the monitor can deliver what I need for the iPod. Or have I got that completely wrong?
