Anyone using an LCD Monitor?

Anyone using an LCD Monitor for editing? I am curious cause I just got a monitor and it seems something is off but I can't figure out what it is.

Everything looks beautiful, the minute I start looking at pictures that I had edited before... something that iwas supposed to be dark is not that dark, and light is a bit too light.

Any information is appreciated.

I use a Sony 17" LCD Monitor and everything seems fine to me. I have had no problems with any images that I have worked on. Infact I think it is better than my 19" Sony CRT Monitor. Just my thoughts on this. I hope this helps.....

I believe the dark issue is a fundamental problem with LCDs. That is one of the reasons LCDs are not YET recommended for graphics work. Check out this review. LCD review

Its funny this topic is still here. You know alot of the professionals use LCD monitors. I know Katrin Eismann uses an LCD monitor. I do too. Not that I am in her league, but I find them to be fine for retouching and editing work.

People say that about LCDs. I use them exclusively now and am very happy with them - I have 2 different ones.

I advise against cheap LCDs - they are not worth while. Also it is true that you can get more CRT for the same price.

I think there is still a lot of residual bad press about LCDs from the bad old days when they were not as good as they are now.

I've been using an LCD monitor for over two years (I think), and have been extremely pleased with its clarity. I am able to calibrate to some degree (which is one of the issues often listed as a weakness of LCDs -- less able to calibrate compared to CRTs). I used to have to fiddle with my CRT controls, but this screen just stays the same without fiddling -- other than running my calibration routine.


Balky -- I hope your problem has been solved by now.

I use a a7" Samsung Syncmaster 170T and a NEC 18" LCD. I like both of them but prefer the Samsung - partially because of the DVI interface, and partially because it is so sharp and clear.
