    I am about to buy a 22 inch monitor for some retouching
    and some basic web stuff.

    I don't feel like spending $1000 for a Mac Display right now,

    so i looked at an LG 22' with 3000:1 contrast ratio. It seemed pretty good for the money..
    (only $ 450 us dollars)

    -the model is called: LG 22 TFT L226WT

    What do you think about doing light retouching with this monitor ?

    I am not doing critical print matching right now, mostly web stuff.....

    I looked up the model of the panel inside the display. Note that it's a "TN" type

    22"WS LG.Philips TN Film (LM220WE1)

    Go here and read up of the various type of LCD panels http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TFT_LCD#Types

    So i guess what you're saying is that TN panels are not good....?
    and that i should go for an S-isp panel.....

    just curious, how did you find out that the LG model had a TN screen ?
    Is there a website with that info ?

    Google is your friend. ;)


    I found a website with this information long ago. I don't have it bookmarked, but I'm sure it's not hard to find.

    fwiw, I got a Gateway FPD2275W for $400 and it's nice, plus has lots of input options as well as usb ports for multiple screens down the road. :)

    See the link to Wikipedia. At the bottom of that page is a list of "external links"one of those goes to a site with a database of LCD info.

    It's fun to follow these "what monitor should I get" threads. In every case the person just gets whatever costs less. Why ask for advice?
