Best IPS for Graphics/Photography?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I need a top notch 24" monitor for graphics and photography. Yes, that means TN panels are out. Sorry.

I will never buy an NEC ever again.

Eizo is very expensive but if you can point me in the right direction, I will consider it. For example, the CG245W is very ugly - I do not need nor want a built in calibrator. Does the CG243W outperform/compete with it anyways? (Sorry, I know not many here have experience with both of these.)

I do not want an Apple - glossy screens are evil.

My budget is nonexistent, but preferably over $1,000 unless the best can be had for less.

I do not want anything larger than 24".

Have you looked at some of the Dell offerings? I'm not an expert, but from what I've seen here, they seem to be pretty popular.

I have a 30" Dell -- And next to Ezio, they're the best around. Huge room for edits in LR / PS -- I get full sized previews close to full sized, SOOC RAW's.

Fantastic screen. And with Spyder 3.0 Pro -- Fantastic calibration. It holds really well, too. I only had to do mine every few months, not weeks. Great screen. I just recently moved to a Samsung SyncMaster SA950, though -- Purely because the 30" was too big for games. Crazy size. But I'll keep the Dell 30" for edits, I think.

And the Dell at the moment is cheap -- $1600 AUD -- Which USD I'm sure is around the same.

EDIT: Err, no bigger than 24"? Well, get the 24" DELL.

I currently own a Dell U2410.

After getting the NEC, not to put Dell under the bus, but the NEC has much MUCH better color, before AND after calibration.

I still think the Dell is fantastic, but when the monitors are side to side, it's clear the NEC has a better picture.

It's just also obvious that sadly, Dell appears to care a LOT more about quality than NEC here. I like my U2410 and all, but I think I was spoiled with the NEC picture quality, hence why I'm considering something else high-end such as the Eizo.

Just sucks that the stupid NEC couldn't maintain any type of uniformity.

Nobody here has any hands-on with any Eizo?

it doesnt make sense to have a $1000+ budget, do photography but NOT want a 27-30" monitor.

i still can't figure you out lol.

Perhaps because I don't want a larger monitor?

Perhaps because for some reason, I use it for other applications?

Perhaps because I use my monitor directly in front of my face?

Perhaps because I don't have enough room for a 30" monitor?

Perhaps because larger monitors typically have higher response times?

Perhaps because a 30" monitor of the same quality can sometimes cost more than two 24" monitors of the same quality and provide far less functionality?

That's just a few examples.

The specs for both monitors are identical except for the power consumption. Since most manufacturers tend to adopt some of the specs directly from LG both monitors might use the same panel. The panel could be a LM240WU4-SLB1 or a LM240WU4-SLB3.

Interesting enough when I looked for monitors using the LM240WU5-SLA1 panel, which is supposed to be a superior panel with its true 10-bit color depth and RGB-LED backlight, I found the following conclusion from Prad (both the LG and HP use the SLA1 panel):

Quote:
Thus, there is still room for improvement on the LG W2420R. If we compare the Eizo CG243W, HP LP2480zx and LG W2420R, which are all similar in terms of their features, the Eizo beats the HP and LG models. Even if it has to do without an RGB-LED backlight and does not contain a 10-Bit panel (astonishingly, the side effects from the dithering level are still lowest on the Eizo model), the full package is the best.
Unfortunately, I have been unable to find a full blown review of the CG245W. Here are two reviews for the CG243W:

Prad.de
FlatPanelsHD

Since Prad was fully aware of the CG245W they might of forgone a review thinking of it as a superficial update of the CG243W to add features. It might be best just to call Eizo and find a knowledgeable rep to fill you in on the differences.

True 6-bit P-IPS panel (over H-IPS and alikes), so you can use Adobe RPG color space in CS5 for printing photos. Or you might switch it to SRGB for web design. BTW, FYI guys, some of those cheaper 12-pit panels from unknown manufactorers aren't what they're baked out to be. Some are just overexaggerated crap (but none of the top end EIZO panels suggested here).
