what to look for in a monitor
Jul 2, 2007

hi all, im looking at upgrading my monitor. ive currently got the screen on my laptop but i just got an age unknown proview CRT monitor and the colours and contrast are just sooooo much better, amazing infact! white is now actually white and its also very bright too. the only thing is, it isnt quite as sharp(dunno why, do you?)

the only other downside is that, being a CRT, its really big, and i dont really have the space for it on my desk.

so im looking for an lcd, probably 20 inch, 22 if its a good price, and im just after some advice on what to look for r.e brightness, contrast ratio, and amount of colours, what are good specs to look for, for photo editing and probably when i get a TV card, watching TV too.

i.e, is this a good monitor? remember its NZD not USD...
