    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 ( factory calibrated fairly )

    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.
