What's a good LCD display for graphics arts and print production needs?

Hi all,
It's true that the good ol CRT displays in the past were the best. They have the Trinitron tube and had clearity. I'm looking to purchase an LCD monitor that'll come close to a Sony CRT monitor and can handle my graphics art projects. Any thoughts and direction is appreciated.
Web dude

CRTs are dead. Please just let them die...
Funny you should say that. I just bought a brand new Philips 22" CRT (for AU$260). I decided to take that path for another few years after looking at the Cinema displays (23" and 30") and noticing severe discolouration at shallow viewing angles (like when you sit closely in front of the monitor to compare three photos side-by-side). Interestingly, the 24" iMac screen doesn't have this problem.
I can't afford or justify the exquisite Eizo LCD screens, so I got the CRT (the best Philips ever made) and couldn't be happier. I've got plenty of space on my corner desk, btw.

  • LCD Displays for T20, T21, and T23

    Have three T20 and T21 laptops with bad mother boards and good LCD displays.  Have two T23 laptops with good motherboards and blank LCD displays (but work great with an external monitor).
    Can T20 and T21 LCD displays be removed and installed and operate on a T23?

    Yes they are swappable.
    Just make sure that resolutions match, namely, if you're installing a XGA screen from a T20 into a T23 which had a SXGA+ LCD (not all of them do, run the model numbers on Lenovo's site) you'll have to use the appropriate LCD cable and inverter.
    Good luck.

  • LCD display for graphic designer/photographer

    My Mac Pro two 2.26 GHz Quad Core should arrive in a couple of days. I'm now in the process of choosing a 22"-24" LCD display monitor. As I am not attracted to the Apple 24" display's glossy surface, I've narrowed display choices down to these:
    1) EIZO CG222W 22.2" Widescreen LCD
    2) NEC MultiSync 2490WUXi 24.1" Widescreen LCD
    Anyone using or know anything about either of these? I understand they are popular with graphic artists and photographers, but I am particularly interested in learning of any compatibility issues with the early 2009 Mac Pro/OS 10.5.6. NEC's support website notes possible compatibility issue between its 2490WUXi SpectraView II calibration software and OS 10.5.6.
    If I chose the NEC model, could I use another calibration software/colorimeter with it instead? If not, then I would just go with the EIZO.

    just got my two 26" NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXi2 and hooked them up to a new nehalem mac pro with a radeon 4870. the monitors work perfectly. all i can say is wow. the color accuracy out of the box is great. the brightness uniformity is incredible. the blacks are really black and the whites are perfectly white. i've owned two 23" apple cinema displays and two 24" led cinema displays in the past, and these NECs look much better. very professional.
    i do have two gripes with the 26" NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXi2. its cased in some sort of plastic. the base is made from the same material. i'd rather have an aluminum casing and base like apple provides. the other grip is that there is a lot of flex where the actual panel attaches to the base. its a bit wobbly. this i don't like at all. they could have done something better with this. otherwise no other problems to report.
    but all in all, the image on the screen is so good, that i won't complain anymore from this day forward. an absolutely stunning image on these screens. love em'!!

  • What is a good defragmenting software for the mac, and what is the price ranges if there are mutiple ones?

    I have had my mac for about a 1 year 5 months, coming onto 6 months. And I want to keep it running in top shape, or as close as it can get. I Am just wondering what is are good softwares for defragmenting a Macbook and what are the price ranges, and what are the recommendations. Which would you rate from best to worst in other words.

    First Mac OS X doesn't need defragged. If your harddrive is ~80% full heavy downloading could hurt disk performance but I'd say you're in the clear. If Apple considered defragging a necessity they would have included it into Disk Utility.

  • What is a good free substitute for Adobe Flash Player? Apple will not download this but I need it for several things I want to do?

    What is a good "free" substitute for Adobe Flash Player? I need this for photos to be developed.

    You cannot substitute another app for Flash because it is proprietary technology. Apple is adamant about keeping Flash out of their phones and tablets, hence why you will not find it in the App Store. If you want to be able to use Flash on-the-go, consider purchasing an Android device.
    Doesn't matter at this point.  Android 4.0.3 is the last OS he'll have if he wants flash.  Adobe has already stopped development for their mobile flash player.

    Hi GabreilKnight;
    You are aware that the PowerMac G5 is no longer being produced hence if you find one it will be on the used market?
    For what you are looking at doing I would suggest that you consider a Mac Pro instead.

  • LCD display for Hardware Monitor?

    Hardware Monitor...
    ...supports certain external, USB-based LCD displays for providing system status. Is anyone using one?
    Can anyone recommend a nice, already-assembled unit to set on the desk here? Thanks.

    Sadly none of the above unit will work w/ Hardware Monitor.
    I just received this email from the author after inquiring about the above displays compatibility w/ Hardware Monitor:
    Unfortunately, these vendors are completely unknown in Europe and
    they only offer drivers for Windows, so no support for these modules
    is possible so far.
    If not, is there a ready-made, external (already in a little
    enclosure) unit that does?
    No, I am currently not aware of any ready-made units. Unfortunately
    the market for these devices seems to be so small that no worldwide
    vendor has established an industry standard yet, or could provide
    an open software layer for Mac OS X. When such a solution exists, we
    will immediately support it in Hardware Monitor.
    For more information about LCD unit support please see the chapter
    "Controlling external alphanumeric displays" in the reference manual
    of Hardware Monitor.

  • What is a good gps app for ipad2 ?

    What is a good gps app for ipad2?

    Good for what?  That would depend on what you want to use it for.  Also, it would depend on whether you have a 3G unit.  Without 3G to stream maps, the GPS would be mostly worthless for on-the-move navigation.
    Even with 3G, it would be real easy to blow right past the 256MB plan and even the 2GB plan while out and about.

    Kappy's Personal Suggestions About Mac Maintenance
    For disk repairs use Disk Utility.  For situations DU cannot handle the best third-party utility is: Disk Warrior;  DW only fixes problems with the disk directory, but most disk problems are caused by directory corruption. Drive Genius provides additional tools not found in Disk Warrior for defragmentation of older drives, disk repair, disk scans, formatting, partitioning, disk copy, and benchmarking. 
    Four outstanding sources of information on Mac maintenance are:
    1. OS X Maintenance - MacAttorney.
    2. Mac maintenance Quick Assist
    3. Maintaining Mac OS X
    4. Mac Maintenance Guide
    Periodic Maintenance
    OS X performs certain maintenance functions that are scheduled to occur on a daily, weekly, or monthly period. The maintenance scripts run in the early AM only if the computer is turned on 24/7 (no sleep.) See Mac OS X- About background maintenance tasks. If you are running Leopard or later these tasks are run automatically, so there is no need to use any third-party software to force running these tasks.
    If you are using a pre-Leopard version of OS X, then an excellent solution is to download and install a shareware utility such as Macaroni, JAW PseudoAnacron, or Anacron that will automate the maintenance activity regardless of whether the computer is turned off or asleep.  Dependence upon third-party utilities to run the periodic maintenance scripts was significantly reduced after Tiger.  (These utilities have limited or no functionality with Snow Leopard, Lion, or Mountain Lion and should not be installed.)
    OS X automatically defragments files less than 20 MBs in size, so unless you have a disk full of very large files there's little need for defragmenting the hard drive except when trying to install Boot Camp on a fragmented drive. Malware Protection
    As for malware protection there are few if any such animals affecting OS X. Starting with Lion, Apple has included built-in malware protection that is automatically updated as necessary. To assure proper protection, update your system software when Apple releases new OS X updates for your computer.
    Helpful Links Regarding Malware Protection:
    1. Mac Malware Guide.
    2. Detecting and avoiding malware and spyware
    3. Macintosh Virus Guide
    For general anti-virus protection I recommend only using ClamXav, but it is not necessary if you are keeping your computer's operating system software up to date. You should avoid any other third-party software advertised as providing anti-malware/virus protection. They are not required and could cause the performance of your computer to drop.
    Cache Clearing
    I recommend downloading a utility such as TinkerTool System, OnyX 2.4.3, Mountain Lion Cache Cleaner 7.0.9, Maintenance 1.6.8, or Cocktail 5.1.1 that you can use for periodic maintenance such as removing old log files and archives, clearing caches, etc. Corrupted cache files can cause slowness, kernel panics, and other issues. Although this is not a frequent nor a recurring problem, when it does happen there are tools such as those above to fix the problem.
    If you are using Snow Leopard or earlier, then for emergency cleaning install the freeware utility Applejack.  If you cannot start up in OS X, you may be able to start in single-user mode from which you can run Applejack to do a whole set of repair and maintenance routines from the command line.  Note that AppleJack 1.5 is required for Leopard. AppleJack 1.6 is compatible with Snow Leopard. (AppleJack works with Snow Leopard or earlier.)
    Installing System Updates or Upgrades
    Repair the hard drive and permissions beforehand.
    Update your backups in case an update goes bad.
    Backup and Restore
    Having a backup and restore strategy is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your computer. Get an external Firewire drive at least equal in size to the internal hard drive and make (and maintain) a bootable clone/backup. You can make a bootable clone using the Restore option of Disk Utility. You can also make and maintain clones with good backup software. You can never have too many backups. Don't rely on just one. Make several using different backup utilities. My personal recommendations are (order is not significant):
         1. Carbon Copy Cloner
         2. Get Backup
         3. Deja Vu
         4. SuperDuper!
         5. Synk Pro
         6. Tri-Backup
    Visit The XLab FAQs and read the FAQs on maintenance and backup and restore.
    Always have a current backup before performing any system updates or upgrades.
    Final Suggestions
    Be sure you have an adequate amount of RAM installed for the number of applications you run concurrently. Be sure you leave a minimum of 10% of the hard drive's capacity or 20 GBs, whichever is greater, as free space. Avoid installing utilities that rely on Haxies, SIMBL, or that alter the OS appearance, add features you will rarely if ever need, etc. The more extras you install the greater the probability of having problems. If you install software be sure you know how to uninstall it. Avoid installing multiple new software at the same time. Install one at a time and use it for a while to be sure it's compatible.

    Referenced software can be found at CNet Downloads or MacUpdate.
    Most if not all maintenance is for troubleshooting problems. If your computer is running OK, then there isn't really a thing you need to do except repair the hard drive and permissions before installing any new system updates.

  • What is a good anti virus for macs

    what is a good virus protection for the mac mini

    Considering that there are no "true" viruses for OS X, the best answer I'd offer is NONE AT ALL.
    Other than a test I did for McAfee in 2004, after which I immediately removed their product, I've NEVER used antivirus in more than ten years and eight different Macs.
    I've never seen any malware in that time either.

    What is a good video converter for iMac?  Premiere 6 will not capture from the Canon VIXIA HF G20.

    Rather than convert, you'd be better off capturing with a more current version of the program -- one that supports AVCHD video. Otherwise, you're in for a lot of headache. A converter isn't going to solve your problems.
    BTW, when you say Premiere 6, do you mean Premiere 6 -- which is over 10 years old? (There was no Premiere Elements 6.)
    Trust me on this: Capture with a Mac version of Premiere Elements 11 or 12 and your video will be perfectly compatible with any Mac program.
