Well I'm using an HP 21" trinitron.

Like everyone else, I don't even notice the lines...and you do really have to look to find them.

I love the big monitor...much easier on the aging eyes.

I've used Aperture Grille monitors since the beginning & I've never been bothered by the lines. Until recently I was working with 2 21" CRT's, the older one's now been replaced with a 19" LCD. Brighter & sharper than anything I've had before & no flicker, so it's much kinder on the eyes.

I'm beginning to wish my main CRT was older, as I'd love to be able to justify the expense of a large LCD: High end LCD's are now capable of displaying the entire gamut of AdobeRGB, something few CRTs have achived. Trouble is they're SO expensive...

I have been coming in and out of this thread many times as I wasn't sure what to check in the poll heading.
I checked shadow mask, as I could not see any grey lines as described in your post David. Mine is a Philips 105S CRT ( yes 15" ) but I am browsing eagerly and longinly to prices for 17" monitors (have to be realistic, can't afford a 19 and least of all a 21 !)

Regards - Martha

LCD Monitors

When I upgraded my hardware I last year I got a LCD monitor (NEC Multi-sync 1760V). I hadn't really got started on photo editing then, but when I did, I started reading that the knowledgeable favor CRT monitors, and that LCD monitors are difficult to calibrate. I haven't made any serious effort to do so, as the controls on the NEC are anything but intuitive, and the prints don't seem too far off, to my inexperienced eye. Would anyone care to comment?

Im using a NEC MultisyncXV17 on the PC - a secondhand piece I bought back when 17inch second hand monitors were more expensive than 21inch new are today...............

On the Mac I have a Belina 17inch.

I was contemplating some flat screens because with a second printer added and the worlds largest collection of USB hubs/card readers/zip drives/external hard drives things are getting crowded. Im still not convinced about them - I have never seen a TFT or an LCD that could do yellow convincingly. Is anyone here using them for graphic stuff?

Interested in it two, especially because I'm going to boy a new monitor in the next weeks and definitely favor an LCD for the lower radiation and the flicker of course

in general which current model of LCD Displays
would you recommend?

talking about price ranges i heard that these models
are favoured by studios or professional retouchers:

higher range:

- Quato Intelli Color 213 (about 1600,- EUR) > new & award-winning 2006

medium range:

- Eizo s1910 (500,- EUR) > didnt hear any bad things about it.

lower range: dont know, any recommends?

advantage of these 2 models is the ability to display the full Adobe-RGB Colorspace. thats the good thing about some of the LCD-Displays.

currently using an Apple Cinema Display 20" which is fantastic but wouldnt say its 100% colorproof. its ok for the price (740,- EUR) and the colors match at 90% mostly (calibrated). its about 10% to "warm" and shows slightly too much red.
