Hi to every reader.
I have got an offer from a friend of a friend. He offers me a second-hand LCD monitor, Eizo FlexScan L675. The price is 190EUR, what is a very fine price for such a thing in my country.
I have to decide fast, or someone else will buy it. The problem is that I know very little about LCDs, so I need advices from people whos knowledge about LCDs is profound.
In short, can you check this monitor's specifications and tell me what is good and what is bad about it? I will tell you what I want out of a monitor:
I am looking for a high-quality LCD monitor, and I suppose that Eizo is a candidate for that. I really appreciate quality above all. I don't care much about the features like USB hubs or so (however I would need a dual video input). But physical quality and screen quality is crucial. I DO NOT want ghosts and dead pixels and whatever else.
My "interaction" with PC consists mostly of:
1) Reading literature (PDF, HTML, etc.) and programming, so it takes about 60-70% of the time. I really read a lot.
2) I also occasionally do video editing from my DV camera, and I watch DVD movies, so count that about 20-30%.
3) I also regularly play a game every day, at least a half an hour per day. So that takes only about 10-20%, but I don't want to chase screen ghosts in UT2004.
4) I often visit DOS, BIOS, Win95 in Safe mode and other low-res environments. But I suppose that is fine for an LCD?
Now here are a couple of links to get you started. If you could figure out in which year(s) this monitor was actual, I would also appreciate that info too.
