Monitor

Postby jamesfc on Fri Apr 24, 2009 11:14 am

The days of the CRT are now behind us and that leaves us with little choice, but LCD monitors. However, there are three basic technologies for making LCD monitors, TN, S-IPS, and VA, and only the S-IPS based monitors are good for photography and video production. Unfortunately, the price tag of these monitors is also rather high, beginning around $800 and climbing to a couple thousand dollars.

However, back at the beginning of the year (2009), Dell announced a new monitor, the 2209WA. Look at the specs: 1680 x 1050 resolution, VGA and HDI plugs, E-IPS based technology, 4 USB ports, fully adjustable stand, 22" widescreen, only $279! The photo boards have been buzzing and early adopters have been very pleased with the quality of this monitor. If this wasn't good enough news, Dell has twice put the monitor on sale, once for around $210 and most recently for $250.

The e-IPS is apparently an "economy" IPS technology, but the monitor supports excellent color gamut and a 178 degree viewing angle. Anyway, I bought one and will be posting a complete review shortly. I understand this monitor is only available from the Small business and Gov't section of Dell. Don't be fooled by the 2209W model, that is TN based technology, is much cheaper (around $179) and is not recommended for photography.

I received the monitor and could't be more pleased. As soon as it is calibrated, I believe it will have a better image that the aging Lacie Blue that it is replacing. I recently read a review on a German website that not only gave it high marks, but also tested that it displays 99.5% of the sRGB color gamut.

The monitor has now been calibrated with the Monaco system and I am still very pleased and impressed with the image and color quality of this monitor. It does have a very wide range of viewing angles, it is an ideal size for my workspace, and the color/image quality is great, and finally, the price is right!

Yes - this has been a very good monitor and I'm very pleased with it! It holds the colors nicely and has good contrast as well as a wide viewing angle!
