This 22'' good? - Page 3

post #21 of 37
To be honest, almost all 22" monitors use the exact same panel in their construction. The only real difference is the backlight and what accessories it has (cables and the like). And 1080p isn't possible on those panels - the horizontal res is only 1050 pixels.

Well some have clearer and better picture. That's mainly what I'm looking for. I hear the samsung 22'' washes colors so that's why I didn't go with it. For example I hear the dells are excellence in picture quality but they don't have them at the egg and are highly overpriced. I'm hoping this LG has equal or better picture.

I think you'll be pleased with the screen you purchased. Everything looks very good on it. Res, Response, Contrast. And of course it looks good.
The price is really good for that as well.

I'm thinking that's the best one for under $350 @ the egg. Are there any others better than this one for under 350 from the egg or is this the best one?

It's actually 2ms. Newegg has it listed wrong.
Yes, the specs/reviews certainly seem good for it. But I'd recommend this Samsung 226BW, a little cheaper and also and excellent monitor. It's the revision of the older 225BW, which I have. Even this older revision in an excellent performer - no ghosting, crisp and clean images. The colors are beautiful as well. And absolutely no dead pixels!

So if you have the cash I'd go for the 226BW, if not go for the 225BW - which is an excellent value from a trusted name. And I'd never give mine up

Ok thanks for your input and I'll consider it. I have a few questions... On the samsung the 2ms is grey to grey. On the LG is the 2ms grey to grey or black to black? And, I'm upgrading from this monitor and will I get any better image quality if I choose either the LG or 226BW or will it just be bigger w/ comparable quality?

With the new monitor, you'll get a much better image. It's got an awesome 3000:1 contrast ratio and the Native Resolution it 1680 x 1050 which is a nice resolution. I'm sure you'll see and improvement.

I think it is 1000:1 DC which is supposed to equate to 3000:1. That's the difference b/w that?

Not sure what the difference is with that. Dynamic 3000:1, Static 1000:1 is all I can tell you. Not sure what exactly this means... But nonetheless, the contrast ratio is very good.

The contrast ratio is a measure of a display system, defined as the ratio of the luminosity of the brightest color to the luminosity of the darkest color that the system is capable of producing. High contrast ratio is a desired aspect of any display, but with the various methods of measurement for a system or its part, remarkably different values can be measured of the same subject.

Manufacturers of display devices have traditionally favoured those methods of measurement that isolate the device from the system, whereas designers of practical display systems have more often taken the effect of the room into account. An ideal room would absorb all the light reflecting from a projection screen or emitted by a CRT, and the only light seen in the room would come from the display device. With such a room, the contrast ratio of the image would be the same as the device. Real rooms reflect some of the light back to the displayed image, lowering the contrast ratio seen in the image.

Moving from a system that displays a static motionless image to a system that displays a dynamic, changing picture slightly complicates the definition of the contrast ratio, because of the need to take into account the extra temporal dimension to the measuring process. Thus the ratio of the luminosity of the brightest and the darkest color the system is capable of producing simultaneously at any instant of time is called static contrast ratio, while the ratio of the luminosity of the brightest and the darkest color the system is capable of producing over time is called dynamic contrast ratio.

Hope that helps some.
