I'm in the market for one of these or two, as I want a dual monitor set up. I had a thread about this a long time ago, which I can't find, but as I'm now in the market, I thought I'd try this one, with a few more things.
I'm apprehensive about the flat panels, namely due to colours, contrast and speed. Have always used CRT monitors for years.
Things I've been told, go for high contrast ratios, 2000:1 is better than 1000:1. The better monitors that have the better panels such as PVA/MVA or S-IPS panels are the ones to go for, for absoulte quality and will be viewabe at angles of 178/178 and get very expensive, such as the NEC MultiSync® 24WMGX³.
I want good blacks, good colours, good contrasts. I want one that will be pleasing for a gamer, photos etc.
The problem I have is that with monitors, it's not often you'll find alot on display at a store to see what there is. Usually only the cheaper ones on display that don't look all that good.
Can anybody point me in the right direction here? What can you reccomend, what do you have, what do you think of it? If you were buying again, what would you buy?
