Post subject: Monitors

...anybody out there who is a monitor expert? Santa would like to know what kind I would like and frankly I dont know what to tell him. I would like a 24 inch but dont know what brands are good or even what I should get for features.

I just want it to display IL-2 superbly...........

Any ideas will be appreciated. Cool

Post subject: Re: Monitors

I have to admit I haven't bought a new monitor in quite a while. Although, with the prices dropping fast on LCD 222 to 24" models, it's getting tempting... Smile

Let us know what you decide on Thud... Wink

Post subject: Re: Monitors

Just a couple words of warning

24" LCDs come in two groups. The cheaper ones usually have 1080 Vertical Pixels, the more expensive ones have 1200 Vertical pixels. We use 24, 27 &30" ones for Air traffic Control systems where I work. Our systems need the 1200 pixel displays to properly display without distortion (both models do 1920 pixels horizontally)

Also LCD monitors can suffer from burn in. I know when LCDs first came out everyone thought they were immune from that problem of conventional CRTs. I can assure you that is WRONG. I have NEC, Samsung, Dell, Viewsonic displays that all suffer from various degrees of burn in. We have found no way to fix it after it happens. SO be careful with leaving stagnant images on your display (Our problem is the frames that divide the display into different functional areas with the software)

We have had good luck with Dell and Samsung recently. One advantage to Dell monitors is the speaker unit that clips to the bottom of the screen

I have had a Samsung 24" LCD monitor (Syncmaster 244T) for a couple of years now. It is excellent, 1920x1200 screen resolution, it's just a monitor though, no audio inputs.

Post subject: Re: Monitors

Just bought a 22" Samsung for my Pop.
I use a 22" Viewsonic (VA2226w).
Both widescreen TFT's good for image editing and gaming.

When choosing, compare resolution; refresh rate (anything less than 10ms, preferrably less than 5 ms); and contrast ratios.

It's not uncommon to have red/dead pixels in a new monitor, read up on your supplier's replacement policy should yours have one (they're not the same and they're common enough that suppliers won't automatically replace without a position / quantity measurement fail).

-S-

I have the one Homfixr wants..the Samsung 26" T260HD. Its a big screen and I love it. It has a HD T.V. tuner in it. Nice big viewing area, COD 4 And IL-2 1946 looks awsome. I run COD 4 with everything maxed out. 1920 x 1200 res and I average about 95 fps. The remote is good too. The only thing I dont like about it is the crappy little speakers built into the unit, but I use my computer sound system. After looking at my old 19" screen I was using,,,I wouldnt go back. If you do get this monitor, think about a blue ray player for movies. The picture needs a little tweeking when you fist get it out of the box. All in all I am happy with this monitor.

Hammer Smile Cool Smile Cool Smile

Speak'n of Christmas.....I got an early present Cool ...


www.samsung.com/us/con...l&tab=spec

Not quite 26" but it is new technology as it is an LED and it looks GREAT!!! It has a 5,000,000 to 1 Dynamic contrast ratio! A big difference from my 4 year old Sony 19" LCD Laughing .
