Professional-grade LCD monitors
Posted on 2006-11-13
I need an LCD monitor that is suitable for professional image and video editing at a native resolution of at least 1280 x 1024. The problem with LCD screens is that they seem to be either good at fast motion (for use in gaming and video playback), or good at colour fidelity (necessary for image and video editing). They are rarely good at both, so I'm led to believe. Also, having dead or defective pixels is something I'd want to avoid like the plague.
I've found plenty of reviews of LCD monitors, but they tend to end with sentences like ". . . excellent for gaming and movies, but poor colour fidelity makes the display all but useless for graphic professionals".
So does anyone know of a site that reviews monitors for the professional image and video editing market?
Things seemed a lot easier when CRTs were the norm.
