Which monitor best suits my needs?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I'm a digital and traditional artist (video games/ comics & print) and also an avid gamer. I was wondering if you guys could suggest a monitor that would best suit my needs.

I've looked around but I can't really find a monitor that covers all ground.

>24"
IPS
wide gamut with excellent sRGB emulation
no / very low input lag
6ms gtg
>60 Hz (if possible)
>1920x1080
<$700

Needs:
Digital Art (video games, exellent sRGB emulation)
Traditional Art (wide gamut)
Gaming / Movies (fast)

I thought I'd hit you guys up for advice since I can't seem to narrow it down. If it comes down to it I could very well use two different displays (one for art, one for gaming).

Now all of the CATLEAP madness is making me wonder if I should grab one of those. Near as I can tell it's an 8 bit panel but somehow it can use 10 bit processing+dither on AMD cards and a 3rd party LUT to get the 10bits. Is that right?

Anyways, the catleaps are attractive because of their prices. Are there any other monitors that I should consider? At this point, for the price of a u2711 I'm thinking of buying two catleaps lol.

Thanks for your input guys.

Well I have one on order but I am about a week from getting it, at that price its worth a shot I think.

I already own a 30" Dell 3007wfp-HC and I love it like nothing else. I got that one in perfect condition, used, for $650+$22 shipping.
