Just wondering what percentage of people use 3rd party LCDs with their Mac Pros.
Two third party. I'd sure love a Mac Pro with which to use them...
2407 with card reader and 5 times as many inputs. it works great with my Mac Pro, and my PS3, and the Wii...
that said, dell sucks, don't buy dell!
Two Dell 20". I'd love Cinema Displays, just too pricey. I made sure to get the non-econo Dell's though so I'm quite satisfied. I just get confused people thinking I work on a PC. :/
Acer 22" as a second display on my MacBook Pro. Everything else are either iMacs or Apple CRTs (calibrated for various printers).
3rd-party CRT and a G5 Quad.
I bought a Dell 2005FPW a few years ago for my PowerMac. At the time it was a much better deal since it used the same LCD panel as the 20" ACD and had inputs for DVI, VGA, S-Video, and Composite video.
I run a 23" ACD. I am happy with it, I do like it. However I think this will be the last. I decided I did not want to shell out more money for just a monitor. As the ACDs are JUST monitors, nothing more, nothing less.
There is much more selection and competitive pricing with 3rd party brands. It will be awhile before I need a new display(sans a disaster). When the time comes though I will start looking into other brands.
i use both, a 23" ACD and a 19" samsung.
I use the former for all the important stuff and the latter for displaying itunes etc, as its colours are awful, but is was cheap
I've got a 23" ACD with my Mac Pro and a 20" Acer for trivial little things to run on (but that isn't connected at all times).
i have a 23" ACD, no power mac or mac pro though.
Doublesight DS-263N and a (pre-owned) NEC MultiSync LCD2090UXi. Reasonably high quality and color-accurate for the cash, as I certainly won't be able to afford anything better while a student. Besides, I'm saving up for a RED Scarlet with Nikon lens mount. Also have a Huey Pro for calibration.
I have 2 LG monitors (22" and 17") and my 26" LG hdtv.
Not sure where my vote would really count but, I used to own a 22" Samsung LCD monitor, and my main reason for buying it was because it was cheap!
However, after a few months, the color just wasn't cutting it for me and I decided to bite the bullet and pick up a 30" ACD.
I've got a 19" Westinghouse 1680x1050 resolution for use with my Powermac G4 and my Macbook Pro. It's basically my primary monitor for my Macbook Pro though.
I've got two 20" Dells hooked up, together they were cheaper than one 20" ACD.
Work - Two 23" Apple Cinema Displays hooked up to my Mac Pro.
Home - One Dell 2408WFP monitor hooked up to my Mac Pro.
I would like to have another 24" monitor at home but other wants are taking priority right now.
I have a Cinema Display connected to the MacPro. Can't go wrong with that
Same! Looks good and it has a good colour balance. Shame about the price, I would've liked to bought two.
20" apple display. Found someone who had one a little cheaper otherwise I wouldn't of gone for it. Was looking at other displays with same type of panel but they seemed to have mixed reviews and weren't hugely cheaper, and had used the apple display before so I knew what I was getting.
Two 23" Apple Cinema Displays.
Two Dells; a 24" (in portrait mode for 1920 vertical pixels) and a 30" for most everything else.
Will add another small-ish Dell (22-24") one of these months.
Also run a 720p projector from my Mac Pro
Acer and an HDTV (ilo - 27").
I have a Planar PX2611W 26" display hooked up to my Mac Pro. Pretty happy with it once I got the settings tweaked properly and calibrated it with my EyeOne 2. One of the few panels I could find that can manage both reasonable color accuracy and good video performance without input lag. I only wish it had more inputs and a more versatile stand, but not too big of a deal.
The display is pretty much the same hardware as the Doublesight DS-263N. I spent a little extra on the Planar because their support and warranty are excellent.
two Acer 22" and a Dell 2408 hooked up to an MXO for color grading. Works for me. ACD's are overpriced, no HDCP, no other inputs. I'll pass thank you.
