    What Monitor or Display Do You Use?




    What monitor do you currently use?





    I was in the dark ages until a few months ago, I picked up this nice cheap 23" LG display. I'm not super picky, just wanted something cheap and big with LED backlight, HDMI audio capabilities and VGA/DVI/HDMI port options.

    Update 2014: Still using the LG

    I have a simple set up really, nothing special a 27" Apple Cinema Display.

    I use the mini-display port to a Sapphire 6870 GPU
    Audio in and out with iSite camera though the USB and all works great.

    What I love most about the U2410 besides the great image is all of the inputs:

    (2) Digital Visual Interface - Digital (DVI-D) with HDCP
    (1) DisplayPort(DP)
    (1) High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI)
    (1) Video Graphics Array (VGA)
    (1) Component
    (1) Composite

    The 2005FPW is an oldie but goodie and is perfect as a second screen.

    Apple Cinema HD Display 23" (Acrylic Model)


    Paired with an ADC to DVI adapter to split the single lead into DVI-D, USB and Power


    Works great with my old PC now, and will be the display I will use once my Hackintosh is built

    Re: What Monitor or Display Do You Use?


    I have a several work stations for my systems.

    At one station, I am using an older 23" Apple Cinema Display with the DVI interface at 1920x1200 attached to an IOGear KVM switch for Zorro, PowerMac G5, stock G4 Cube and a Mac G4 Hot Rodded Sawtooth.
    Although my computers connect through the KVM switch, I have a second monitor, an old Dell SP2208WP A00 monitor with DVI, HDMI and VGA connectors. Zorro's is connected via HDMI for two screens while DVI is used for a two screen display for my Mac Sawtooth destop and the VGA is used for my Mac Cube running OS 9.2.2.

    At another station, I have a HP ZR24W monitor for Thunderball, Son of Zorro, Batman and HacCube on an IOGear KVM switch.

    Finally, at station for my older Mac 7600, I have an old NEC LCD1980SXi.

    Re: What Monitor or Display Do You Use?


    Delighted to see this thread. The monitor is my last big decision, build-wise, but after opting for higher end components in the build, it's eaten into my monitor budget - which was originally $500 for the Dell U2410 (as a graphic designer, I need a decent monitor) or potentially a 27" 2560 x 1440. (There was a HP 27" that fit the bill, the ZR2740w that's available for under $700, but questioning if I need something that big).

    Now tho, my budget is more like $300, unless I can get work to pick up the bill, so I'm scrambling.

    I am running a 27" LG Flatron W2753V



    I have my PC running on the DVI port and my Mac Mini running on the HDMI port, and I just press source to switch between the machines.
