Yeah, I know, everything's relative. I've stopped dreaming about $1000 displays now. But I've seen them in operation, and know what they can do.
Yes, I consider myself lucky to have what we have.  :lipsrsealed:

DCS might like to tell why he likes his EIZO, and how different his images look compared to the 27" iMac.   :cheesy:  I'll at least hook up my old DELL 2007FP (S-IPS) to the iMac, as they have built in DVI to Mini-DVI connection on the iMac. Once I resolve the transition remnants/backup conundrum.


You can't buy a monitor today, consumer model anyway, that doesn't clip shadows and highlights. If you are a visual color corrector, this is a disaster. The Eizo not only does NOT do this, but displays color pretty accurate. No monitor is perfect, but the Eizo is the closest I have seen. Cost a pretty penny, too. You really get what you pay or.

for what it's worth I've been using a 27 inch iMac for about 2 months and I love it. The "gloss" issue doesn't even come into play here because there are no lights overhead in my work area, never get a glare. I've always preferred to work this way (in the dark)...must be all those years in the darkroom.

one thing is though, until you get used to it you just have to realize that everything looks a little "better" on this monitor than what it will print like. The color accuracy is very good however and you can hold an epson proof beside it and it's like 95% accurate most times which is good enough for this little print shop.

Thats my 2 cents.

Off topic, but don't those damn things get hot! You can see why they went LED, rather than CCRT backlight. Would have ended up with a mess of aluminium and plastic on the bench.  :shocked:

That's not only the heat from the LCD but the computer as well so it seems hotter than normal for a regular monitor.

They get REALLY hot. I like the color, too... for pleasing adjustments, but it still clips shadows and highlights. Not accurate by any means.

Exactly. I reckon they did some slide rule calculations and decided that was the only way it wouldn't melt. LED just keeps it under melting point.   :laugh: I still reckon computer-in-display is design over function, but to a ridiculous degree.

If you put your monitor within 2 feet of a roaring fire it will start to bow and melt.

It's in her will, Dave. Hand scratched in her own blood. I converted some files for her, she "felt" she owed me. Who am I to argue. I like meat.
