Remember When We Just Bought PC Monitors?

December 23, 2009

Our business has a software development team that also works with graphics, and various other multi-media.

As their computers were getting old, we have plans to acquire newer workstation hardware that is a better fit for the graphical work that they do.

Of course – that forced me to look at the lowly computer monitor too.

Ahh the good old days!

When choosing among monitors was hard! – 14 inch? 15 inch? and later on, Wow! 17 inch monsters! Which do I choose??

How easy it was! – But now?

We have Acronym nightmares of TN, MVA, PVA & IPS

yee gads! then;

DVI, DVI-I, DVI-D , HDM –

Matte vs glossy – contrast 1000:1? or 50000:1?

The list seems to go on…..

Ahhh the old days!
