RE: filmscanners: Monitors: Shadow Mask or Aperture Grill???

I cannot abide shadow mask monitors - their relatively low contrast is the
thing that gets me all the time.  I can't think why a shadow mask is better
for text, either:

- aperture grille monitors are flat these days, shadow mask monitors are
not; flat text on screen is more friendly

- the blacker black of an aperture grille monitor means that black text on
white is more contrasty, which I like (maybe the opposite is considered good
for text readability!)

I hate the way the speckly, grainy look, of shadow masks makes all pictures
look grainy.
