I'm looking for a new desktop monitor to replace my 5 years old 17" CRT. I am looking at purchasing either a 19" CRT or a 17" LCD.
I've weighed the pros and cons of the two and it's true that both do have major cons to them. For the 19" CRT, its definitely the bulk. And as for LCD, it's the colour reproduction and refresh rate. And also the native resolution of 1280x1024, but I am willing to live with that.
As a graphic designer, I am leaning more towards a 19" (in this case, I'm looking at the Sony G420) having used them in school and absolutely fell in love with the picture quality. It's sharp and vibrant - but very very bulky. I could really do with more desktop space, and I'm sure many of you do too.
So I'm wondering, as a graphic designer and avid photographer, is LCD still a viable option for me? The only thing i'm worried about is the colour reproduction, so I would be extremely grateful if anyone could share their experiences with colour on LCD screens, and hopefully recommend me a LCD screen that could really give the G420 a tough fight.
