    Default Which LCD to get?

    Im going to COMEX to get 19" wide screen LCD but aint sure which fit in well..

    There's viewsonic, samsung and lg at the price of $399.

    But something bother me about was the contrast ratio. Most of the LCD are 500:1 but, I saw LG is 2000:1! How much different is it compared to the rest?

    Which LCD is worth to buy if I also wanna do photoshop too. Im getting Powercolor graphic card too X1600.

    My aim is to do photoshop and gaming too. Would like heed some advice from you all.

    Which... hm...

    Make sure its a 8-bit panel rather than 6-bit (with dithering).

    waa gaming and photoshop...
    for photoshop best would be high contrast and 8-bits
    for gaming, good response rate will be good. try to look for <8ms (only if you are playing fast game)

    Haha LG got both fast response as well as good constrast + 8-bit (Although I heard of 10-bit???)

    But what LG lose out to Samsung is the large variety of useful utilities.

    Frankly, with your budget, it will be very difficult to get a true 8 bit LCD, as all (correct me if i am wrong) WS LCDs around the $3xx price point are using TN 6bit panels.

    Even the LG panels which claim to be 8 bit (ie 19" 1952T) are TN panels - most probably they are so by 6bit + 2bit dithering (= 8 bit).

    Your safest bet would be to get the Dell 2007FPW (S-IPS panels), or the $539 Viewsonic VX2025wm LCD (I'm using this, it's great.)
