[filmscanners] Re: CRTs vs LCDs (was: Re: Video card for imaging)



That is very much the case: The best LCD screens now have a contrast ratio
of 1:400 instead of 1:250, Viewing angles: 160/170 instead of 90-120 and a
response time of 25 ms instead of 45-50 ms.

Furthermore, some manufacturers are now including decents colour adjustment
controls which, in conjunction with ColourVision's new CRT/LCD spyder
monitor and software, apparently makes it possible to do a decent color
calibration. So we are slowly getting there.:-)

See also: http://www.tomshardware.com/display/02q1/020114/index.html for a
comprehensive - if somewhat negative conclusions for graphic use - overview
and review of 13 LCD screens.

Absolutely true.  Your requirements may be very different from mine.

BTW, the February 2002 issue of MacWorld has a comparison review of 37
LCD and CRT monitors, including the Sony and Apple models described in my
previous note.  You might also be interested in reading Bruce Fraser's
article "The Color Challenge" in the June 2001 issue of MW.  In that
article he tried some very high end LCD and CRT monitors, and commented
on their strengths and weaknesses for use in a professional shop.  Of
course, Bruce's tests were probably done a year ago, and since then the
products may have undergone revisions or been superceded by new models.
