Not sure about that Taylor. Just like my home theatre setup. I could never go back to a two speaker system with any and every type of virtual surround. Compared to my 7.2THX setup, it sounds completely different! With a virtual sound bar or a stereo setup, I could care less about what is going on on-screen, I just wanna get up and make a coffee or get a snack. With the full system and correct DTS separation...It pulls you into the action.

Having multi-speakers inside headphones also makes a big difference, but you MUST have everything setup correctly. On my G930's I just got all the DTS decoders working on a x64 system and WOW, sounds like my full system. Everyone must remember that all that virtualization separation is similar to what Dolby Digital and DTS do to the signal, then things like THX are equalization passthroughs. So if you are running a stereo signal then all those surround simulations will be just fine and will trick your mind into thinking that there is actual signal separation.

The best way to illustrate this is to just run a movie with a 5.1 DD signal into your stereo TV and turn on the sets Virtualization. You will notice that the dialogue is lower and many of the sounds are lost because it is blending all signals into two, and the music and explosions seem louder and you cant seem to hear the actors talking if you turn it down. All that simulated stuff is designed to be used with older stereo sources. But anything already separated cant be blended back together and then re-separated. So for music and other stereo sources its OK, But I will say we should have them supply us with more of these type of headphones instead of going backwards. especially if they want us to wear these big buckets on our heads, then they should pack as many little speakers in there as they can:P

if you shop around and look for the specials, you can find most 23''rs and even up to 27" in the 150-200 range.

Nothing really special about having a ultra thin, unless you are that superficial and must have a monitor that can be knocked off the desk by your cat or hamster:P

Looks like the same design and size that they have been using for years. now it just has more buttons and some lights?

I always thought this design is too thin, it could use a little more junk in the backend in order to fit the palm. or would also like to see it have a left and right variant.

Anyone could buy one then review it and return it? At least that would help the negative sales:P

If they really want to sell these things then they should try putting the salespeople in turtlenecks! Or run commercials with arrogant profs talking to camera telling you how stupid you are, or two people in split screen talking over each other about how the touchpad will save the environment if you buy one!

For that amount of hardware on your head, It could at least be wireless!

SO since they are saying this is the first TRUE 7.1? Does that mean that my Logitech G930's dont count as true 7.1? Man what a marketing ploy!

If they want to hit the small business market then they should not have stopped supporting shows like Stargate that showcased Dell computers on the forefront of tech:P
