    I am too getting an LCD and I have decided on the Viewsonic VP171b...it's a 16.7m color panel

    But I must find out more on the warranty policy etc first

    It's a 8ms panel... There's not way it can be a 24bit (16.7m) panel at the moment..

    You may wish to take a look at this article before you buy :

    For color work it is better to get a S-IPS LCD panel -- most popular ones are based on TN matrixes which is not suited for color.

    Viewsonic VP191 has 8ms response, 24 bit colour & good colour accuracy.

    At least according to Tom's Hardware :
    http://graphics.tomshardware.com/dis...526/index.html

    Mine seems good so far.

    0 dead pixel for 7 days warranty, 5 dead pixels warranty for 3 years
