bernstein;   admittedly i haven't tried putting the monitor in portrait mode using the included software.   i've only had it in portrait mode once and ended up doing the screen adjustment manually using the nvidia control panel.   when i get back home (i'm on the road right now) i'll install the software and see if it works under vista x64.

chilko;   ok, it was worth asking.   things can still get messed up during shipping even though the L220x is packed very well in a coffin of styrofoam.   hopefully you can get this resolved soon.

1024x768 can be displayed on the L220x either by stretching or by 1:1 mapping with a black border.   this can be set in your display control panel.




I am a bit confused, I thought the L220x could not do 1:1 mapping??
This is one of my main points for not getting this monitor yet and I have not been able to find anything about it in the manual (41u5174eng.pdf). So can you please tell me more on how you set this up?

Thanks,
Paul

in windows, the display control panel gives you an option to stretch or not to stretch the display.   that's what i'm referring to above.

i've watched numerous DVDs (no HD-DVDs though) on this display and all have shown a black border on the top and bottom of the image while using vista's windows media center for playback.

I've ordered this monitor and will use it on an iBook G4 using the VGA connector. Have some of you tried it with a VGA cable, and how did it turn out? Is the VGA cable included in the box?

a VGA cable is included in the box.   it works well with VGA on both of my thinkpads but i cannot speak to the ibook's VGA output quality.   depending on how far away the two will be sitting, a shorter, higher-quality cable might help.

Hi!
 
From the partnumbers I understand that there exists localised versions of the L220X, e.g. T33HBUK, T33HBIT and T33HBDK for the United Kingdom, Italy and Denmark. Then I discovered there's also a T33HN-variant (e.g. T33HNDK) which is cheaper than the T33HB-variant. On the surface it seems that the B and N variants are exactly the same, except the N-variant is a "TFT Hybrid". Does anyone have a clue as to what that's about?
 
Just to illustrate the above, have a look at this site (scroll to the bottom of the list):
 
L220X T33HNUK - £270 (ex. VAT)
L220X T33HBUK - £394 (ex. VAT)
 
Can anyone tell me where the difference between the N- and B-variant lies?
 
Regards
Steffen

The difference between N and B is in the marketing designation: N is the Topseller-line with discounts and B/C are normal lines without special discounts.

I don't understand this. It's always the same product, right? How come some people will have to pay 30% more or less for the same product? What does "Topseller-line" means? What does "discount" refer to?
