  • Best Graphic LCD monitor

    Looked at some of viewsonics newer LCDs. Look good, but cant distinguish between graphic series and "multimedia" stuff. Any suggestions of what to look at? Would like 20-12 viewable. Any other companies?

        What about viewsonic monitors? I heard they were good. Does response time matter?

          response time really only matters if you dealing with motion graphics.
          what you should be looking for (spec wise) if your just doing graphic design is good brightness, contrast ratio, viewable angle, optimum resolution, and dot pitch (i think thats what its called).

          look at the apple HD displays for an example of good specs.

            I use an LG monitor - 19" Flat Panel LCD - it's nice and crystal clear. However, I tend to design things for print too dark now. Because on my monitor they show up too bright and clear. When it's printed it's darker than expected. But that's something I'll get used to and adjust.

                    Yeah the systems where supposed to be really top of the line. Well till a top computer magazine called them up on it and ordered one. When they recieved it, it didnt do anything, it didnt even work. The monitors where flaky.

                    You can build a model and make it look real, but not functional. Many believe they did this. If you type that: www.go-l.com or the go-l.com in google you will see a whole mess of crap about them.

                    All in short, they advertised a product that didnt live up to the expectations that they had specified, and the cost they had it, wow.

                    The screen that is 1 screen less, was $10k. The top desktop system was $5k.

                      Crazy, too bad they didn't pan out.
                      The last few weeks I've been researching more about LCDs. I didn't know there was so much to pay attention to. There is so much to learn!

                        for graphic design specially desktop publishing stay away from TN,PVA,S-PVA,MVA Panels. Mostly made by samsung & Au-optronics
                        Your choices are limited(S-IPS, AS-IPS,H-IPS) panels made by LG.Philips,Hitachi but they are almost 100% higher than PVA and MVA pannels as PVA,MVA are 100% higher than TN panels those you always see every where in big box stores.

                        So close to $1000 you can get decent NEC, Eizo, Lacei, Apple Cinema or view sonic VP series.
                        Go far latest IPS technology, highest resolution and digital inputs. EG. DVI-D,DVI,HDMI,HDCP

                        Hope this info is helpfull

                          I doubt it, somehow I don't think the original poster is even still around. Much happens in two years

                            and it seems lavaspit was banned.

                            But we do see a LCD question pop up every week - could be good information to keep around.
                            Some advice is profound, some is clever. The above post is a good example of both.

                              I've done a lot of research on this for a client and, yes, if you have the bankroll Eizo is the Rolls Royce of screens. It surpasses Apple in terms of viewing range for example and it's ideal for soft proofing. It's the closest to a CRT screen. Lots of people go gaga over Apple, but their displays are more about fashion than performance in my opinion.

                                Funny; aversion to Powerpoint seem nearly universal among graphic designers. Frankly, the reasons for that escape me somewhat. It's really just another piece of software.

                                Personally, I refuse to work with PowerPoint by feigning ignorance and bafflement as to how it works. There's no piece of mainstream software I've ever run across that I despise more than PowerPoint....

                                Actually, most of the lines on the portraits are of variable width. It is more noticeable on the queen, with her stylized hair. The king though, would certainly seem to need some more work in that area,...

                                How's that? Powerpoint isn't closed to "zing" any more than any other software. In fact, it's an excellent tool for its purpose.
