  • TFT Query

    While perusing the ''Whats your system'' thread I notice CRT's still hold a firm grip. Granted we are all looking through different eyes but I wonder if anybody has seen a TFT they were impressed with yet from a graphics point of view?

    Well that says it all!

      Chris, The only LCD that I've seen demoed that I've been impressed by is the Apple 23" HD Cinema Display. Unfortunately, I don't own a Mac and I don't have $2000 to spend on a display, so I've never actually used one.

      I purchased a cheaper (though the specs looked good) LCD about a month ago and returned it within the week. I could not calibrate the display at all and I can't tell you how much ink and paper I wasted trying to print the beautiful royal blue that I'd included in a design only to have it print black time and time again.

      Thanks but no thanks on the LCD, I'll stick with my behemoth 22" CRT!!

        Hi Chris, I'm a little late comming in on this one but I wanted to put in my 2 cents. I think the LCD screens will take over the business sector fairly well eventually. Possibly the home market too in the manufactures force them down our throats like I think they will. But, for the professional graphics market I think it will be a hard sell.

        I've been looking at those screens for years because they are essentually a laptop screen. I'm not impressed at all with this type of display. That's why I have a docking station for my laptop at work so I can view the screen on a regular display. they are definately better than the old passive displays the laptops had several years ago. But for normal viewing I prefer the CRT. I have loaded PS7 on my laptop and don't like the view.

          Agreed on all points, I recently bought a Hitachi TFT and its great for office use especially in a bright office that I have. But running it in tandem with a Mitsubishi CRT really shows up its failings with regard to colour reproduction. I've no doubt things will improve but they still are well behind at the moment. Love them for small footprint and usability in strong lighting conditions.

            I've often drooled over laptops on display at the local office supply store. But I am hesitant to get one because the screen doesn't seem well suited to working with photos in any realistic manner. Barry just mentioned in another thread that he has a laptop.

            I'm wondering if anyone...

            NECPA271W / 6-core / 2nd display
            by CelticKC
            Okie-dokie. So my department purchased a NECPA271W and MacPro 6-Core (with 16gB of ram). I should say that I do all the Photoshop work, used for web and print, for a large university's creative department. I have the display connected to the computer via DVI but that leaves me no place to connect a...

            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...

            New monitor
            by Frank Lopes
            I'm on the market for a new monitor and I'm curious what you all use.

            My current monitor is a very large, trinitron 21" that served me superbly for 10 years but is on it's last legs.

            What do you use for brand and model?
            Any experience with Samsung or Dell monitors?...

            Eizo CG243 or CG211?
            by hello
            Hi all,

            after a new monitor myself.

            If any of you had the option, which would you opt for? The CG243 or the older CG211? For me the screen size isn't the issue, more colour and screen quality/reliability. Soft proofing is the key as 95% of my work is for print. Also i'm...
