cheap 1080p monitor as an artist in South America

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I work as a pixel artist and for the longest time I've been using my laptop's monitor a CCE ultrathin t745 with a built in 1366x768 14" LED display and I decided to buy a LG 22MK400H (1080p 21.5" TN 60Hz - 75pHz), well let's say I regreted it due to my own ignorance mostly for not knowing a lot about display types and buying a TN display when looking for color accuracy was a very ignorant decision at that. I would love to know how can I rate monitors and predict how good they will be in contrast and color accuracy in the future for a possibly more educated choices in displays, if possible I'd like some recommendations that fit my criteria as a begginer artist in Brazil.

 

Here follows the US LG page for the monitor I bought (and returning it tomorrow)

IPS is going to be your best bet for good colors (oled is even better but only in a few monitors). next is VA

I was told many times today after asking in other places that I should not buy LG monitors if I am looking for color accuracy and my better options are Dell and Acer monitors, you have any recommendations on those at 1080p IPS? (I literally only have an intel hd4000 as IGPU and that's the max res it can display)

LG makes color actuate monitors you may just need to calibrate them.

I don't know what your local market has.

I tried to calibrate this one for a long time but at the end it did not make any difference at all, tried everything on the intel hd panel and on whatever windows let me, and also tried installing their drivers to no change at all either.

a TN will never be color actuate. I'm saying an LG IPS can be color accurate that is who makes most mac LCDs

Alright, I was eyeballing the LG 24MK430H which is pretty much the same as the 22MK but at 23.8" 75Hz and it's an IPS

LG 22MK600

 

Dude, you are one letter off from good purchase.

A lot of people recommended me the MK600 but I looked and it is just not sold in Brazil

If you can stretch a little bit more you can get LG 24MP88 or LG 24MP59G, they comes with nicer stand and more input options.

 

I used to own LG's lower end IPS monitor. Though the color is hella accurate (I compare monitor color with final product on print), the stand wobbles like crazy and the brightness can be somewhat limited/underwhelming.

one HDMI is completly fine to me all I care about is ok color accuracy, blacks and contrast, resolution wise the max that I can render is 1080p, brightness wise even the 22MK400H was fine and also stand wise I kinda don't care as long it works fine and doesn't drop the thing on my desk lmao.

You could also go with a Dell monitor. Those are pretty color accurate and great monitors for your content creation. Get a Dell 24 inch for 1080p and I'd look at a Dell if LG doesn't work for you

people seem to really like Dell and Acer but for some reason their prices here exorbitantly salty, the cheapest 1080p IPS monitor I could find was at least R$950!

Seems like dell is too expensive where you live?

Another good monitor brand for creators is BenQ

How much is a BenQ 1080p in your area?

Very expensive (cheapest one was R$680)and I can't seem to find any IPS displays from them here in Brazilian stores.

just go with whatever is a cheap IPS panel it should be good enough after a calibration.

I think I will the 24MK430H seems like a sweet deal for an IPS monitor, I just don't know if my intel hd4000 will get something wrong with it's color or something can that be a problem?

Yes, your Intel HD 4000 graphics support up to 1440p resolution through HDMI. No, your graphics will not mess up on the colors. Your graphics will do very well with your monitor of choice

That's a very good choice. Very color accurate

Dell and Acer didn't make a real monitor, they just assemble it within their own package and calibrate it. The Panel inside tend to be either LG or Samsung so they tend to be more expensive. 

 

That said, if you are working in a solitary environment, I think you will just need to look for a monitor with strong colour performance. IPS isn't always necessary, especially if you aren't going to flip that monitor for anyone to see. All monitor need to be calibrate for colour critical work, no matter what brand you buy and you will also need to have it calibrated again for as frequent as every month if you need it to stay absolutely colour accurate. So long as good it has a good coverage of colour space that you use, even a TN can be fine.

 

If I was you, I'l start with this list of rting's budget monitor then work my way up until I got all the spec and price I am happy with
