Default What is your monitor and....

What monitor do you use and what resolution do you have it set at?

I am currently using a Samsung SyncMaster 117x 17" LCD Display (for review purposes) set at 1280x1024 and I must say, the picture quailty of people's photos looks much nicer than the Mitsubishi 17" CRT I normally use.

So what do you use??

I use a Belinea 19" at 12801024. It's not a great monitor by todays standards, but three and half years ago it wasn't bad and it was the best 19" I could afford on a student budget.

I don't think I could live with a lower resolution anymore. I got a 19" monitor because I was doing a lot of CAD work at the time I bought it, now do a lot of programming though (as well as image editing/viewing) and I find I still need the high resolution to effectively manage all the windows I need open on my screen. The best setup I ever had was with 2 monitors, but sadly one of them blew up and I've never really been able to justify replacing it.

Samsung SynchMaster 700IFT 17" : 1152x864 @ 100Hz 32bit

Color on the above matches my Canon S9000 to a T, apart from the 'light' that is obviosly brighter than photo paper so I guesstimate when printing which so far has worked for me

I'm using an Adi Microscan 19" tube monitor set to 1024 X 768 @75 Hz. I find the pictures I get on screen, after correctly setting brightness and contrast for background room lighting, are a fair match to printed test targets and the lab photo prints I get back from a Fuji Frontier printer. - That's my yardstick of confidence for now until emission drops off!

hehe, only a 17" CRT (something cheap) set at 1024x768. I really have no need for a massive screen (I would rather save the $$$ and get something more useful)

Sony F400 19" (1280x960) and a Dell 17" CRT (1024x768), on a Matrox G400 Max. Pretty old setup but still kicking and perfect for what I do. Maybe one day I'll replace all of it with a single wide lcd and a faster computer than my 6-year old one :lol:

I use a SAMSUNG SyncMaster 753DF set at a resolution of 1024 by 768 @ 85Hz.... Although I bump it up to 1280 by 720 when I do web design work.

Hopefully the next one I get should be a 19" TFT with colors comparable to a CRT.

Dual 19 LG 995Es set at 1280 X 1024. I usually run at 16 bit color but often switch to 32 bit for Photoshop. When wide 19 LCDs come down a little more Ill bite the bullet and get a couple, but the LGs have been decent. I think Ill also need a pricey video card to run dual LCDs.
