Carl, sadly there is no decent replacement for our grade 1 monitors, unless
Dolby or another brings us something soon we will have another situation
where it is accepted that it's good enough (digital vs film). It is a small
market compared to digital projection for example, I believe this is why
there has not been research on the same scale. Post houses spend millions on
the best possible kit to keep images to their highest quality to be
displayed on poor monitors. Personally I've been clinging on our Sony CRTs I
can't imagine working with anything else right now. Digital projection is a
possible alternative but very different viewing conditions if you can cope
with this.

So to sum it up: anyone using something OTHER then

I'm finding a little bit hard to believe that these Plasmas
