Which Monitor do you Recommend?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'll be using it for 2D and 3D CADD (professional), gaming (non-competitive), photo editing (hobby), movies, reading, and browsing.
I'd rather go DVI than HDMI, I don't plan on mounting it to a wall, and I don't care about its speakers.
I'm currently leaning toward the Viewsonic, but I'll take other people's input into consideration.

Hey there, well I may be able to give you some advices since most of my work is with 2D and 3D APPs, but it's important to know what's your budget because the ranges are super big, and just saying that you want them for that kind of application does not narrow the search tongue.gif

Anyhow, regarding the VGA vs HDMI, you should be aiming at HDMI or in fact to DisplayPort, because they will give you the best signal possible, and they are digital signals, unlike the old VGA.

There are also special monitors that allow you to view more colors, those are called 10-bit screens, but you will need a profesional GPU to work with those.

But if what you want is to choose one of those you said, I would rather go with the Dell E2414Hr, simply because it's bigger at 24" and it have low Response time thumb.gif

In the end as i said, your budget is the most important thing tongue.gif.

Thanks for the reply.

I'll only be using it at home and for my desktop, so I have no need of an HDMI port.
I'd rather spend as little as possible, but I don't plan on replacing it until it ceases to function.

EDIT: I decided to purchase the Viewsonic.
