  • Monitor-LaCie or ViewSonic?

    I am about to buy a new monitor and wondered if anyone has a LaCie electronblueIII 19" monitor. I have heard WONDERFUL things about that monitor. I also have a friend that suggested the ViewSonic G90f...but he doesn't do graphics work. The aperature grille and Mitsu tubes on the LaCie are VERY tempting though. Can anyone give me any opinions on the 2?

    My only knowledge is theorhetical (from data and such), but I'd go with the LaCie (or the Mitsubishi they paint blue and slap their label on). They're both good units, though.

    I've been lusting after that big Mitsubishi for a long time now

      I am making a trip to the grand opening of the Apple Store in Cincinatti this Saturday, so I'm gonna have a look at the Mitsubishis that they carry. I'm starting to wonder which Mitsu monitor the LaCie actually is.

        Their bigboy used to be the 2040U, now its the 2060U (I think, I can't keep up with all these numbers).

        Look for a 2040U on closeout, no real advantage (and if you find two of them cheap, let me know )

          I have used the ViewSonic 19" A90 for the last 18 months every day for photograph and graphic work. I found it easy to set the monitor to my software (Photoshop and Picture Window Pro) scanners, and printer. Sorry but I have no first hand knowledge of the LaCie monitor.

            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...

            Guidance on purchasing a monitor
            by Caravaggio
            Hi, It has been a few years since anyone has posted any recommendations on monitors for retouching. I was wondering what people's current recommendations are?

            I'm currently using an iMac, 5k, retina 27", late 2015, calibrated with colormunki, as my main monitor. I know Apple monitors...

            De-gaussing your monitor
            by Craig Walters
            this kind of goes hand in hand with the calibrating your monitor thread. however, it's not quite as critical and doesnt usually need to be done as often. still, it can make a difference.

            now, someone brighter than myself can try to explain what de-gaussing means and how the need for this...

            Monitor Calibration
            by robinstanley
            Hello Everyone,

            I've just invested in a Gretagmacbeth Eye One Display and calibrated my monitor for the first time yesterday.

            It wasn't too much of a hassle getting the monitor calibrated once I'd worked out how to adjust the settings on my LaCie monitor. (only problem...
