I have been looking at monitors lately as I think mine sucks (retardedly expensive samsung monitor from 2007). I noticed that I dislike all separate monitors (as ugly as flatscreen TV's) but love the crispness of the modern laptop screens. Anyone knows stuff about this?
Hmm I run a Samsung T220, and I am happy with it (1680x1050) it is overprices stylised nonsense though, with dynamic contrast on it is fairly sharp. Cant remember if it has HDMI but I only use DVI (from PC) and VGA from my xbox 360 anyway.
I have a Samsung like that as well. Stylish but I don't like the screen quality. It's not the resolution but it just seems as murky as most modern TV's. I mainly want a new one for pixel-arting and the odd gaming, money is not an issue.
Personally, I'd get a CRT monitor for pixel-art.
With LCDs, the colors change too much depending on viewing angle. Pixels with the same RGB can look very different colors depending on whether they're at the top or bottom of the screen even. They're fine for most things (even photo editing and other graphics stuff), but it just sucks for pixel-art.
lol, I mean the actual screen, not the design. Modern laptop screens are really nice and crisp, separate monitors seem like small versions of them crappy TV's with grey blacks and all kinds of grainyness going on in darker parts.
@Sketchy : I still prefer CRT for qaulity too, but try finding them for sale now . My old monitors resolution was better than my samsung (1600 x 1200) and the colour contrast was a million times better.
CRT is no longer in fashion I'm afraid - I also think the qaulity of CRT TV's was better, even my friends Sony 50 inch HD monster TV looks like poop if your any closer than the other side of the room (grainy as hell and poor edge definition).
