LED Monitors Kick Arse

    I have to say that I love using an LED monitor vs. LCD... it like going back to the CRT crispness and brightness, yet slim and low power.

    I like.... :D

    Yep, it's like a supersized Iphone screen.

    When I changed over to the iMac 27 one of the big selling features was the incredible screen. So crisp, and if you turn the brightness all the way up it's too much, which makes it perfect in sunlight. LOVE it... :)

    They start around the AUD$200 mark for a 22" LED monitor. If your a mac person, just get the latest imac... LED.

    Hmmm, that's teasing. I not long ago bought a huge 25.5 LCD (at least for me), don't think I'll be changing any soon either.

    I'm not a mac person. Should I get a mac screen for cool effect?

    Are you talking about the bright glossy monitors like Sony's X-Brite? Because I hate the crap out of mine.

    I can see you're not a Mac person, because if you were, you'd know that the Mac is actually in the screen. :D

    ....except nearly every "LED monitor" out there is just an LED backlit LCD... are we ignoring that?

    LED backlighting comes in two forms: edge-lit, and back-lit. Edge-lit is good for general consumers, they don't really care about accurate colour, etc. They want "thin", and they want cheap(er). Back-lit is better for design, and plainly, a better monitor for techies. They provide more even backlighting and better colour reproduction, among other things. RGB LED (different from white LED) backlit IPS is the real bomb, and is damn expensive (compared with others).

    What about Mac Pro + Mac Cinema Display? :rolleyes:

    Since I will never ever have enough money to buy one of those, I don't waste precious mind-space with thoughts of it. :p

    On a related note, the AMOLED screen on my phone looks damn sexy :D

    The low end Mac Pro costs over twice as much as my pc and has worse specs.... yey? Also, irrelevant to this thread, which is about LED monitors, which apple don't actually sell (technically)

    Your statement pretty much holds the same as my current PC. Macbooks are getting more competitive though, which is nice (I like it more for the good quality build, rather than the OS itself. The OS is nice, Win7 is good as well.).

    As a person with bad eye sight I can tell you that I completely agree. Amazing screens.

    So for those mac knowledgeable (as I have only entered mac)... when I get my new 27" i7 imac, can that then run as a dual monitor with the 27" LED Cinema display? Can an imac become a split display like that?
