RE: Do Screeners Use The Same Screen?

I think we might be waiting a long time for a TFT to rival top end CRT's. Like Kingwide, I also use a 21" Sony Trinitron and haven't come close to finding a TFT to rival it, including the excellent Apple 23" <acronym title="Hokkaido International Airlines (Japan)">HD</acronym> Cinema Display.

RE: Extremely Frustrating.

Cmon Colin, a mirrored hard disk RAID array is hardly expensive.

That basically means if a hard drive fails, there is at least one other with exactly the same content in the system which erases the possibility of data loss.
