    Red face Buying a new LCD

    hi ...... i need a little advice regarding buying a new LCD for my graphic, illustration and 3d works

    i had been using a viewsonic 19" monitor which was broken last week

    so i'm looking to by a lcd which has below specs

    size - 24" or 27"
    should have an IPS panel ( not TN )
    good contrast ratio + color accuracy ( factory calibrated fairly )
    my maximum budget is 500$


    specially need to know the LCD brands which are best for graphic works ( according to mine i've used samsung ,acer,viewonic monitors ........among them viewsonic was the best )
    so kindly request to give some ideas with ur experience on using various lcd types ........ thanx a lot

    Samsung panels are good, but their color curve is not very even; there will be some quality loss after calibration. Viewsonic used to be somewhat better. Haven't tried Acer.

    If you have a colorimeter, then most modern panels will calibrate just fine. If you don't have a colorimeter, buy one. You'll get better results with a custom-calibrated cheaper panel than an uncalibrated expensive one.
