Need a new monitor...
      #5495030 - 10/29/12 05:27 PM

My Samsung SynchMaster 204T monitor appears to be on the verge of giving up the ghost. I'm trying to not be annoyed and instead think of this as an opportunity. What I am looking for is feedback on what high resolution monitors in the 20" range folks are using to support processing. Any recommendations are appreciated, I plan to move on this by next week. Thanks!

Clear Skies, Brian

It seems to be an epidemic! My SAMSUNG SyncMaster 940N just give up the ghost and I ask myself the same questions. So I am also interested in the subject ...

Eric

Ha, my ASUS just gave up the ghost... I'm also in the market. Epidemic for sure.

Yikes and no vaccine in sight! Guess I'll have to go out shopping tomorrow since we haven't heard any kind of recommendations...

Clear Skies,

Hi Brian,

I have a BENQ 24" HDMI SENSEYE 3 GL2450 B Flat screen monitor, that came with a new hi spec desktop that I set up down stairs in my observatory a couple of months ago. It seems quite nice although I haven't yet got around to calibrating it. Upstairs in a computer hutch by my scope I have a 23" ASUS VH232 LCD Flat screen, have had this monitor for a couple years. I run DVI via a powered DVI splitter from the desktop to both screens. For processing I have been using the BENQ 24" with final colour balance being done on a Toshiba Laptop that has been calibrated. When I get around to calibrating the BENQ reckon I will do the lot with it.

Regards
Trevor

Thanks Trevor! I went online and checked out the specs and they look very good, I can't get over how much the LCD prices have dropped in the past few years. Only problem with the BenQ I see is that it does not appear to be available stateside, might have to see if they are available rebranded under a different name here. Asus, on the other hand, is commonly available so I might look in that direction. Thanks for the feedback

Clear Skies,
Brian
