Top 5 best monitors - Page 3

post #21 of 26
Apple actually did a good job on their Cineview monitors but they're damn expensive. Plus, I think its some other brand's monitor with a fancy new frame.

And if you go with anything but the NEC (which comes with an included calibrator), make sure to pick up an i1Display2 along with it. It's a shame to buy a really nice monitor and not calibrate+profile it properly!
Would love to get that NEC, but it's not in my budget. I'll definitely keep your input in mind for upgrades perhaps later this year or early next year. Also thanks for the heads up about the calibration tool. In the meanwhile, one final question if you don't mind. Do you think there's a big enough difference in quality over the U2711 vs the U2410? For the extra 3 inches, slightly higher resolution, and such? I bring this up because it's twice the price, which i'm certainly willing to pay IF you suggest there is a significant difference.

There is an immense difference, and it is all in the resolution. Get the U2711 and you won't look back.

The 27 has a much tighter pixel pitch than the 24, as well as 1,612,800 more pixels than the 24. However that is tromped by the u3011's 400,000 more pixels and 210,000,000 more pixels than the 24. However, the 30 has the largest pixel pitch of all 3.

I believe a tight pixel pitch will be best for what you are doing, then again I don't know much about what you're asking lol.

But, you did ask for the differences between the 24 and 27, and those are the only ones I believe.

It corrects the color output of a monitor. The most common problems include an inaccurate white point, crushed blacks, and the backlight's output spectrum changing over time. Calibration/Profiling fixes all of that. And it also makes all your different monitors display the same colors, because they all become correct.

Saying it's worth it is an understatement. The colors are more accurate, it's sharper, and once you go up to those high resolutions you can't go back. As long as you can afford it IMO it's a no-brainer.
