Get graphic: monitors for graphics pros
Updated February 15, 2006
Professional graphic designers and photographers need a lot more than a display with decent image quality and a pretty exterior. After all, a properly calibrated monitor could mean the difference between chartreuse and spring green--and whether you get that next contract. Traditionally, CRTs have been the most dependable choice for graphics pros. Now, a few companies make LCDs that challenge the status quo, but they do so at a hefty premium. These LCDs will satisfy the most-demanding designers and photographers; the monitor you choose will depend on your bottom line.
