Sorry for posting a new thread before properly introducing myself.
I'm on a tight timeline today, and need a quick answer if possible!
My Apple Studio Display 17" CRT monitor bit the dust a couple of days ago (after a nighttime power outtage...surge protected power bar may be the culprit?!) I picked up a Samsung SuncMaster 730B LCD, but am really unhappy with the colour and image quality...working with photos is horrible!
So, I'm taking the LCD back and getting a new CRT instead. Don't have the funds for top-of-the-line, so am looking at cheaper monitors. Have narrowed it down to either HP, NEC or Samsung...17" or 19". There are so many models to choose from, I'm at a loss. At this point, I'm considering:
Samsung DynaFlat 997MB 19" $269.99
Samsung DynaFlat 793DF 17" $159.99
Samsung SyncMaster 793MB 17" $179.99
HP S9500 19" $289.99
NEC AccuSync 900 19" $269.99
NEC MultiSync FE992 19" $289.99
All of the above 19" have 1600x1200 max res, the 19" have 1280x1024
I'm really not very savvy on which brand or model is best. I've always used Apple monitors, and know that I like the quality... Do any of the models I'm considering fit the bill? Is there one brand that's better than others? Of these, which would be best for colour correction and working with photos?
Thanks for any help!
