  • Monitors- LCD vs. CRT

    Before I got my current monitor (19" Trinitron) I looked into getting an LCD, but I just could not get over the fact that whenever I moved my head to the side, the screen would change.

    Is anyone familiar with an LCD that does not exhibit this? I would love to have one for space and eyestrain purposes but until the technology gets better I just can't see myself doing imaging editing on one.

    I've never had one Greg, but I've heard that LCD's can't be calibrated as well as a CRT.

    I knew a Greg Couch in high school in Texas. He would be old enough to be your father. Of course, I'm not that old (LOL)

      I have heard that as well. I would guess that within the next few years the technology will be perfected to allow them to be more "photo friendly".

        I must have missed this post earlier. Thanks but no he was my age. Dadgumit.

        BTW - I like your avatar picture. You could definitly be his son - he was handsome too and had a great smile like yours. (Don't freak everyone - I'm not cradle robbing - just reminiscing )

          I have the Rad-5 by Radius, (an LCD monitor available at Sam's Club). I can make some limited adjustments to it, but not as many as with CRTs. As far as any screen change due to angle of view -- I don't see that problem. There is a small difference if I purposely move to view it from the extreme left or right, but none during normal activity while working. I'm sure it's not up to professional standards, but it sure suits my needs well.

              A friend has purchased a used Imac, the version with all the componentry built into the monitor casing not the one with the TFT emerging from a dome base.

              I'm concerned that my monitor may be giving up after I've taken such good care of it, oh these many years.

              High contrast horizontal lines, such as found on this forum, cause a very faint color change corresponding to the height and of the line, to the edge of the screen. It's like the...

              Can anyone point me in the right direction of the above? I have a 19" monitor and the room has many windows making glare impossible to avoid. I'd really like to find a hood so I can see what I'm retouching!!

              Have read so many threads that were helpful but not enough that I thought I would start a new Thread. I hope you guys are not tired of talking about the same thing.

              I was talking with someone today who has just ordered a flatscreen (LCD) monitor. This is a person who does a lot of photo work, so I was a little surprised as the last time I compared CRT vs. flatscreen technology (between 6 mos-1 yr ago), I thought the consensus was that CRT still offers the most...
