  • Apple Studio Display 17" Flat Panel

    I was wondering if anyone is using an Apple Studio Display 17" Flat Panel for color corrections? Apple seems to claim that their line of flat panel monitors can be used be the serious graphic artist. I, on the other hand, have read that even though the technology has improved for flat panels, they still have color shifts, etc., and that CRT's are still needed for this type of work.

    Any thoughts on this matter from anyone? Anyone on these boards using Apple's flat panel

    On the other hand, would there be any other disadvantages to using this type of monitor for retouching?

    I've had serious lust over the big brother (sister?) of that one, the Apple Cinema Display.

    However, after discussing it with several people, including Chris Cox over on the Adobe Photoshop forum, it became clear that calibration of an LCD display is effectively impossible.

    So now I'm lusting after the big Mitsubishi 2040SU

      Apple Cinema HD Displays??
      by mayday
      Hi does anyone have any experience of Apple Cinema HD Displays?
      Do they give accurate colour when calibrated?

      Or are the laCie 319 Gen 2 or NEC Spectraview 1990 better options?
      Does any have experience of these displays?

      27" lcd tv VS. 20" cinema display
      by AdamZx3
      Has anyone used these lcd tv monitors for graphic/photo work? they are priced lower than the apple cinema display and are 7" bigger. The reviews seem to be great, especialy for the money. Having dual 27" monitors would be pretty cool but if the color isn't as accurate it would be a waste....

      by Generations
      Hello, I'm upgrading my monitor and I'm leaning toward purchasing an NEC E231W-BK 23 or an Apple Cinema Display (last version) in 20 or 23 inch. My budget is around $200 so I'm looking at second hand Apple displays versus a brand new NEC. I would love to hear any opinions on which would be a better...
