What monitor do you use ?
May 25, 2010

Hi,

I am thinking about to buy a new external monitor for photography. (Yes, I checked already a PC Forum )
I wonder, what modern LCD do you guys use.

I suppose to buy IPS technology, but want to spend reasonable money only. (Dell Dell 2209WA , 2311H for one)

-One of my questions is , what native resolution is optimal for picture sizes we have. My actual laptop doesn't support 1900xYY .. resolution so I could buy 1600xYY LCD or use the 1900x LCD in suboptimal resolution until I upgrade. (Soon)
-What screen size and aspect ratio ?

-Is the calibration tool necessary, or is the ICC profile included good enough by modern monitors ?
-Any other hints welcome. I don't want to forget any important option, if I buy.

Many thanks
Btw. good link in PC Talk
