Hey Ya'll, My father is currently in the market for a 17" LCD with the following requirements: DVI Input 1024 x 1280 res minimum Accurate color reproduction Very bright (250 cd/m^2 minimum) Refresh rate < 24 ms (16 ms preferred, 8 ms not necessary, but would be nice) Suitable for Photoshop work To give you an idea of what it's for, it's to replace an aging Sony CRT, for use with photoshop and outdoor photography. Sharpness is critical because he needs to be able to tell if the pictures are in focus (such as seeing a reflection in the eye of a bird), as is color accuracy. He often participates in photo contests and also creates prints for people, so a monitor that accurately represents his work, from camera to print is essential. Some models considered are: Samsung 730B Sony SDM-HS75P/B View Sonic VP171b NEC LCD1770GX I've seen all of these monitors in stores, and of them all, the Sony just seems like the brightest/sharpest/clearest of them all. It puts the Samsung and ViewSonic to shame, just by looking at it, but I'm not giving up on them because I don't know how good their color accuracy is. The NEC has a coating like the Sony XBRITE, and is also bright and sharp. Asides from the chance of having a problem with glare, I think they would be the best choice. What are your experiences with these displays, and are there any others you would recommend?
