I just upgraded(downgraded) from a 19" CRT which was fantastic to a 19"LCD
Both run at the same res but the refresh rate on the LCD
However for photo's the CRT kills the LCD
monitor is one of the better ones around after i spent quite some time looking at reviews and writeups etc.
However for photo's you just cannot beat a good CRT.
makes getting sharpening correct as jaggies are moe amplified on a LCD
than CRT monitor.
The colors are great and very vivid although the monitor calibration program is useless as LCD
's seem to have far more available contrast than a CRT.
I'd have to say the space i save having the flat panel is not worth the loss in image quality in both flight simulators and in some aspects of photo editing.
Given how cheap good 19" CRT's are i am seriously thinking about going back as space is not an issue.
Given the differences between them i'd imagine many people will get rejects for various reasons and many of them valid.
I have been having a run of sensor dirt which i can't pick up on my LCD
Why? Well with the contrast only down at 40 on a 100 scale the spots don't jump out like they used to.If i turn up the contrast then the screen becomes so intense it is unusable for any length of time.
I'd be saying differences in monitors is already causing problems and it will only get worse with no LCD
calibration setup around for all to use.
