    TFT's are fine for web design (just like monitors), but they're not good for
    colour matching. If you need the best colour reproduction for testing, you
    need to use a CRT monitor.

    I'm looking closely at the NEC LED1760NX at the moment, to replace a CRT
    which I run alongside my laptop. But I'll still keep my Apple 20" CRT on
    another machine, just for testing.

    HTH,

    Tim,
    You may not get a sensible reply to this..... by their nature TFT are
    different than Tube monitors and display will vary although you may be able
    to fine tune a little. Try running a laptop next to your main machine with
    the same images on display and you will see the difference.

    A lot of the "pro" or serious designers and rich swines like me have both
    types of monitor side by side!

    I use the TFT on the basis that everybody will have one day and when they do
    ...I will be in front of the game and they will finally see what I designed
    in my colours!

    Art :-)

    What monitor you use is not important, Whats extremely important is that you use a standards complaint browser like mozilla to test your code.
    As far as monitors are concerned, I suggest to get a video card with dual monitor support like Radeon 8500 and above. This way you can have 2 monitors on the same PC, where one monitor is used for developing while the other is used for testing.

    I use a Samsung SyncMaster 191T and I'm very happy with it. There is 1 dead
    pixel, but it's barely noticable. I do however have a Viewsonic CRT right next
    to the TFT, and I use them in a dual monitor setup. The CRT is great for testing
    color, seeing sites on a lower resolution, and parking all my tool palettes,
    allowing for more space on the TFT.
    Keep in mind that the TFT's only display well at their native resolution (mine
    is 1280x1024). You're going to need to buy a decent TFT for professional use,
    but your eyes are going to thank you and your power consumption is going to
    reduce. And not forgetting the minimal EMF radiation compared to a CRT. Now when
    I turn on the CRT I can't believe that it used to be my primary monitor.
