Dilemma? Which monitor to take? Apple 23”/30” or Eizo/NEC?
Aug 26, 2006

Hi all,

I’ve currently have a macbook pro and will buy a Macpro in the coming months. Since I got rid of my 20” Imac I need a new screen.

Can anyone give me some advice on the screen to take? I love the size of the 30” Apple Cinema, but how is the quality compared to the Eizo 2190 spectraview and Eizo CG210 (the CG221 is to expensive for me).

When I used the Imac 20” I didn’t have enough space on the screen so I hooked up a second screen (not possible for my macbook pro) and that worked ok (I guess screen size was still too small ).

So what shall I do. Buy a NEC/Eizo and I will probably miss the size of the screen but have the optimum photography monitor or shall I go for the Cinema display (23” or 30”). Are the Apple 23” and 30” that less good for using with photography then the Eizo/NEC?

Thanks for your advice.


P.S. Uwe, I know that you use a lot of the Apple screens. Advice is very much appreciated.
