Re: filmscanners: OT: Monitor Purchase



I have a Sony Trinitron 19" AG monitor (Dell branded) and it works
excellently for graphics.

I can't compare to a shadow mask as my second monitor is a cheapie 17" to
put palettes on.

There is an excellent article on monitors at The PC Technology Guide site:

| I'm thinking of buying a 19" monitor to go along with an aging 17"
Panasonic
| in a 2 monitor setup. The Panasonic would be demoted to the #2 pallette
| display for Pshop. I've read recently on West Coast Imaging's website that
| Aperture Grille displays have been the preferred choice for imaging. I
| understand that Shadow Mask monitors are better for text. WCI mentions
| problems with cloning on SM monitors. What sort of problems?
|
| My Panaflat is a shadow mask monitor, but has developed an intermittent
| glitch. I don't particularly like AG wire lines on the screen (had that on
| an old NEC 4FG). Also, because of the chance of getting a lemon, I would
| like to buy locally (means CompUSA). The choice of AG monitors there is
| limited. I think the only one is the Viewsonic PF790. They have an
Envisions
| SM monitor with really good specs for $250 through tommorrow. (Of course,
I
| want to see it first.)
|
| My experience with monitors in general (and I've bought in the $600-800
| range previously) is that they die in 3-4 years anyway, which discourages
me
| from paying a premium.
|
| How much of a difference is there between AG and SM monitors for Photoshop
| work? This new one will be specifically for Photoshop. I don't want to cut
| corners that I'll miss, but I don't want to blow money either.
|
| Any comments on the Viewsonic PF790? If I have to mail-order, I'm leaning
| toward getting the Lacie Electron Blue III 19". I understand Lacie is
| offering free shipping for $399. My thinking is that, since their market
is
| imaging professionals, they will have better QC and a friendlier exchange
| policy should I get a clunker.
|
| Any advice will be greatly appreciated...
