[filmscanners] Re: OT: Choosing a high End CRT

>> The one fundamental thing on choosing a monitor is to buy the demo <g>
( or
at least have the seller hook up the one he is proposing to sell you, so
you can see the images for yourself). They DO vary from sample to sample.
You want to check a sharp image, and also a screenful of text, at a small
font size. If the text is sharp, everything is likely to be. If the colors
are smooth and pleasing, and the text is sharp, all is usually well, as far
as sample variations are concerned. Just my experience. <<

A few points to consider: A CRT will change slightly in the first couple of
weeks of use. Usually it gets slightly better. Even if a dealer is willling
to hook up a monitor for you, it requires at least a half hour warm up and
stabilize. A white full screen image will give you a pretty good idea of the
evenness of illumination and colour inconsistencies. And perhaps most
importantly, there are differences between video cards that influence the
sharpness of the image. If you view the monitor on a different brand/model
of video card than you have, there's no guarantee the image will look the
same when the monitor is hooked up to your own computer.
