    If someone pulls a prank, they're the arse. Glad my boss doesn't take kindly to pranks. We have fun, of course, but anything that costs the company money? Not so much.

    I agree, the borders are too heavy.

    Don't stretch the text. Use it at 100% scale only.

    Personally, I don't think you need vertical lines at all. Just horizontal rules would...

    The back and the front look like branding for two completely different businesses.

  • Best LCDs for color critical work?

    Hi.

    I am a graphic designer, working on a Mac, that is trying to figure out what LCD monitor to replace my dying CRT with. I have done a lot of research, but would love to get some opinions from other users.

    I am not a gamer. This is strictly for graphic design and professional retouching.

    I have looked at the Apple 23", but heard differing opinions. Although Apple says it is "award winning" when it comes to the color, most say it is absolutely NOT the monitor to buy for color critical work. I also can't get past the fact that the screen looks dirty - like it needs to be dusted. i know it's matte, but there are other matte screens that do not look like this.

    I have also read about NEC's new 26", looks great - pricey. but most buyers seem to have a problem with it being noisy. strange. also wondering if the color gamut it boasts matters/can be reproduced?

    Then there's Eizo, but i'm wondering if the less expensive ones are better than anything else.

    Samsung?? Westinghouse??

    And lastly, if i am running the Dual 2.7 G5, will I need to upgrade the graphics card in order to use anything but the Apple?

    Any thoughts from experienced users would be much appreciated!

    THANK YOU.

      I've got the 30" apple and we've also got a 20" and 23" here at the office. Color is great, very accurate. i really don't know what you mean by dusty looking. They come color corrected out of the box too.

      Dells are pretty good monitors as well...
