I'm leaning on a 40" or 50" screen. TBD wall hung or on a cabinet .


The are not direct windows that have glare, However, right above the location of where the screen is, there is a vertical bank of skylight windows that line the end of that wall. There are shades on it however.


How I will use the screen is 2 fold.

During meetings/presentations - mainly graphical images will be displayed (whether it be photos or floorplan renderings).


The other time, I will just be using it to look at my Outlook *calendar schedule*. I will hardly ever be using it as a *pc* on the screen however.


When not in use, a screensaver of *our portfolio of images* will be playing.


I have only plasma's at home as I prefer the look. We have Eizos here in the office for workstation displays. I presume some variant of LCD or LED will be the proper display type to be used. To be frank, I've never been a fan or either. LED appers to bright and has like a *filter* ontop of the image ---- it has a certain feel to me that I just can't explain....


Thoughts, suggestions

What benefits do I get with that over a regular Sony, Samsung, etc.....



FWIW, I had a NEC Pro Series installed in my old office setup 5-years ago. Cost a whopping penny back then as well but consumer LCD's have come a long way. I still buy the $$$ Eizo's for the desktops but....


I do like the 1600x1900 or 1900x1200 resolution on the new screen.

I've seen smaller sizes NEC LCD professional monitors next to HP Dreamcolour and Dell UltarSharp models. NEC looked amazingly good. NEC was quite expensive; more than Dell, but less than HP -> but it looked better than HP. The company I work for is involved in producing ACAD drawings and I know the guys who work on these ACAD machines quite well. They have Dell UltraSharp 27" monitors, but their dream monitors are NEC's. Dell supplies all laptops / monitors / docking stations for us - hence they are locked to using Dell monitors, which are not bad but when I compared Dell to NEC (it was 27" NEC as well - can't remember the model...) Dell looked unevenly lit with washed-out colour. NEC looked like a moving slide with rock-solid, locked-in brightness and contrast.


You know exactly what type of monitor you need. If it is for professional applications - NEC is in my opinion best option. I also haven’t heard any bad comments regarding their reliability, where Dell does not have such impeccable record (not sure about NEC...)


Good luck in deciding...

Good points made ....I have a couple of the NEC's as well for workstations, but the Eizo's run the gamut.


At the 40-50" level, I'm no concerned about color accuracy nor will it be surround with a hood. It's just a conf. rom afterall..

My only concern is the skylights / sunlight issue and which *type* of screen is best ----for the sunlight issue
