I am in the process of purchasing a new computer and I was looking at an LCD display. I have LCD at work and I don't find it that nice.

I found this link the other day and I thought that it may be of interest to others.

Image is everything. Learn how to calibrate your monitor to best performance (http://astrotips.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Sections&file=index&re q=viewarticle&artid=7&page=1)

On another front, there is a new technology that may make LCD's obsolete.

Just think of the new flatscreen monitors or TV's that this technology could provide. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I would pay to shop carefully for an LCD monitor. There are wide variations in cost and quality of displays. LCD technology is continuously being improved. Prices should also drop during the next year or two due to an anticipated increase in supply. CRT monitors remain the best value but are bulky and consume more energy. Samsung makes some very nice affordable apature grill displays.

You sent me to that site but I was more interested in Octopuses get erections (http://www.nature.com/nsu/030922/030922-11.html) another link on the same webpage. My brother is a marine biologist back in Newfoundland, now I can torment him about studying squid for the size of their 'woodies'. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Ain't science grand?

We have purchased several refurb NEC LCD flatscreens and they are terrific...

The problem I find with the LCD monitors is, they look great at one resolution. As soon as you put them into a resolution that is different from their native resolution, they have to play funny scalling games, and look terrible.
