We're celebrating Christmas a week early with Lara's family.  So I'll be turning off posting in the classes from Monday morning to Wednesday evening next week (17th-19th) (approx Sunday evening to Wednesday morning USA time).  I look forward to seeing your photos in class for the rest of this week, and over the weekend, as usual.

Monitor Recommendations

Recommended Posts

Have you recently published a recommendations list for monitors? Am in the market, and most of the leading monitors get so-so ratings from places like Amazon. Thoughts?

what puzzles me, and i know you have to take everything on the internet with several grains of salt, is that virtually all of the well thought of monitors (including the dell) have a five star rating in the 60's or so. complaints with light leaks, etc. i usually throw out the top and the bottom 5% of ratings on anything, but this issue gives me pause. really appreciate your feedback btw, thx!

It's true that some items from every manufacturer will have flaws.

But what's ALSO true is that people with bad experiences give feedback MUCH more often and vocally than people with good experiences.

As long as the specs are good, and you're satisfied that the vendor has a satisfactory returns policy if the worst happens, there's no need to be frightened.  The true percentage of flawed items is MUCH lower than the feedback suggests.
