Suggestions for Purchase of a new Graphic Design Monitor
Posted on 2007-11-26
I need to purchase a new 19" monitor for graphic design and desktop publishing use on a PC. What suggestions do you all have, in terms of brand/model, features, quality and experience using?
It must be a CRT, because we plugged in an LCD on one of our graphic design computers once; the colors were so different from what the rest of us see and from our print-outs that the boss was not happy with it, and I don't think I could convince them to try again.
Since this is somewhat subjective on my part, as to which answer(s) I award points, please let me know if it is an inappropriate question.
I will probably either split the points among people who answer similarly, i.e. in the majority, or to the answer(s) which seem (to me) to have the best "integrity" (purely subjective on my part). e.g. if 3 out of 5 all say "Monitor X", then the points go to those 3. However, if I really like answer 4, because they explain why "Monitor Y" and even lead me to a solid review, then I'll award all the points to 4.
