    Images look really nice on a Acer B273HU, using a HDMI cable.

    Dude, if your Tn-Film monitor doesn't have banding, but my PVA panel does, I'm gonna be so pissed off. :mad:

    FYI, it's not a smooth gradient on my Dell 2407WFP. I'm not a monitor connoisseur so I don't know how that compares to yours.

    No it isn't. Banding is when a gradual fade of color (in this case, the fade from the lighter grey around the case to the darker grey at the edges), isn't seen as gradual at all. It is seen in steps.

    SNiiPE_DoGG and steelkane say thanks.

    Hey Wile, you will be pleased to know that there is actually a slight banding even in the .tiff when I looked this morning from one of the burn operations we performed when widening the backdrop ;) I am not sure if photoshop or lightroom did it but we are working to fix that today

    although I must say anything more than a very very slight banding is your monitor and not the pic ;) we will test it out later today and see if I have fixed it :)

    That makes me feel a bit better. Thanks for mentioning it. lol. I might just be due for a recalibration then.

    And the open door shot is FARKIN AMAZING man. Just beautiful.

    I have tried to, but there are few people with the cash to afford the system.

    new Background because I (and Wile E :D) didn't like the quality of the last one - more photos taken today but those I cannot show ;)

    100% guarantee no banding in this one :rockout:

    Much better! Nice smooth gradients. Looks great even on the cheap work monitor I am on right now. Very very slight banding, but I'm almost positive it's this monitor. I honestly wouldn't even notice except I am looking for it. I can't wait to see them on my home monitor.

    Great photo's of some top notch case modage! nicely finished too. :respect:

    I think the banding issue you discribed is called gradation and might be related to a display driver or color mode. Switching display modes to 16bit color, then opening a 24bit or 32bit color image can render a higher color mode image with poor gradation.

    hmm, looks like image processing issue cause I see the difference between the two images on two different displays; dell ultrasharp LCD and philips magnavox CRT. Looks like it could have bene from resample/downsize with a lower image quality, or image compression.. I'm Interested in knowing what they changed to resolve the issue.

    That's AMAZING.
    It looks so clean, it looks perfect.
    It doesn't look overdone at all, it looks perfect.

    Bravo.

    Nice desktops, I like the 1st ones a bit more, don't seem to be any banding on them for me. Awesome design!
