Well, the old 17" CRT kinda had a brainspasm and was starting to get seriously shaky. Time for a repair call, methinks. However, a complete lack of a spare monitor put a crimp on that plan, so it was off out into the wilderness to hunt down a pack of LCD monitors, and see if I could score me a big'un.

After much hunting and some seriously disappointing testruns, I finally stumbled across a chap who actually knew something other than salesman-crap-speak. (I used to be one, and quit because of the utter drivel I had to spout to make quota... so I know it when I hear it.) After some quick comparisons of tech-specs, and some serious price-haggling, the sale of this monitor was negotiated... helped along by a hefty 20% discount. (Shows you how much mark-up there is on these things!)

So, I got it home and pulled out the toolkit, expecting to require at least a good screwdriver or allan-key. Nope, it's all clip-up and plug-in, power up PC and you're away. I had the screen unpacked, installed, calibrated and running Photoshop in under 12 minutes. Stunningly easy to use!

The supplied ICC colour-profile was not a great match, but it did provide a good template to 'tweak into shape' utilising Adobe's Gamma Control util, bundled with Photoshop. This took less than a minute to complete, so make sure you have a good calibration system ready to go. This is essential because of the colour-shifting you get from viewing the screen at even a slightly different angle. Set it up where it's going to be, and calibrate it right off, best way to do it.

I was impressed to find the unit was wall-mountable, so slapped it up on a temporary bracket to just have a peek. Looked fine indeed... alas the wall was slightly further out than OSH recommends through it's ergonomic standards. So, back onto the stand it went. Shame really.

Overall, I have been rather pleased with this purchase, and have possible plans to buy another two for the remaing 'main' machines. But for now, I will just keep an eye on this one and see how it lasts the distance.
