    if you are using photoshop only, just get one big 24-30''
    Dual display comes into use mainly when you are using a few applications at the same time...
    Or else you will always need to stetch your photoshop window to next screen which to me is not very appropriate...
    and lastly, buy 2 lcd of the same size...(colour consistency and there'll be a narrower gap between the 2 screens)

    I havent yet seen any review on this Dell.

    Usually Dell is not part of the list of displays reviewed by online mags, what's your opinion in term on image quality ? (Contrasts, colors, ...)

    Hi, that's true, but if you do look around, there are quite a fair bit of cards that supports dual-LUT functions.

    I'm using a Xpertvision Radeon X1600Pro, and it supports this (a easy way would be to look at your control panel, and see if they have installed 2 graphics adapter drivers for your card).

    AFAIK, some of the nVidia cards do have this as well.

    Contrast is almost as good as a CRT. You will need to get use of the colours if you do any printing. So it's all about calibrating your monitor accordingly. If not your dull image may look pretty deceiving at times.

    Hi, yes, that's the one. In order to load dual LUTs, you will probably need to get a LUT loader that supports multiple monitor profiles (ie, Windows Color Applet).

    u can use your current 17" as a seceondary monitor to surf net, put status programs, mp3, etc. just anyhow place it. no need to be side by side

    i intend to buy a 19/20" WS on the next show also and use my 17" as sec screen (see pocket enough for 20" or not)

    Ya.. thinking of that initially.. Dun intend to place side by side.. But at maybe 90-120 deg to each other. But still a lot of space needed.. haa haa.

    One thing that put me off dual display is the need to have another power point. kind of max out my power point even with all the multi plug. One display also lesser wire..

    Since the Muay thai fighter said so.. Must be good lah.. Me waiting for next show too.. which is end of the month.

    Need to get a cheapo card too.. Currently using gefore card that dun have DVI.

    Hi binbeto, yes, I agree there is a big price gap between 20" and 24" Dell.

    PM you some details, hope it helps.
