  • Choosing a new monitor

    Hey people,

    I'm wanting to buy a new monitor, something about 32" LCD (I don't like LEDs ones because they're too bright and also reflects too much the environment, but if you know one which doesn't, let me know). I already have an LCD Apple Cinema Display of 21" or so, but the space on screen is too small at this time. Don't want to buy the one of Apple (32") because it has vignetting on the corners.

    Any suggestion from you about which monitor should I buy? One of equal or better quality than the Cinema Display?

    Budget is USD $950 (that's the maximum amount allowed by customs here).

    Thanks in advance!

    NEC PA30” SpectraView II. But not for $950! Either raise the budget or lower the screen size.

      New monitor choice
      by KevinBE
      I have recently made the mistake of buying one of the new Viewsonic A90f monitors. The reason I call it a mistake is that I should have looked at the specs real close. It does advertise as an exceptionally bright monitor, which should have been a warning. It is too bright and I cannot get a good...

      Dual monitor calibration

      For a few days I struggle to calibrate my dual monitor setup (Dell XPS15 laptop and Dell S2240M monitor). I used Eye-One to calibrate them and I'm pretty happy with laptop monitor profile, but the external one looks too cold and greenish. However I LOVE how Photoshop changes the colors...

      I have a 30 inch Apple Cinema display. It is currently at an authorized Apple service provider receiving diagnostic tests for the next 5 to 10 days as it is having issues like cloudy vertical streaks that make images seem dirty when they are not. This is my only monitor. I was thinking of getting a...
