View Full Version : dlp or lcd ips

07 July 2012, 11:44 PM
I'm using a built in hd3000 radeon and a 37"lcd on my desktop. The lcd is 720p and I need more resolution.

I can get a 73" 1080p dlp (used from a friend) for the same amount of money a 22" 1080p dell multitouch ips will cost ($400). I'm leaning towards the dlp.

Are there any particular drawbacks of using a dlp for 3d & vfx if its color calibrated? What would you go with?

Using a 73" display for a workstation seems like a huge waste of space. The space aside unless the DLP is specifically a large format display it will probably not be possible to calibrate. Modern televisions have dynamic brightness and image processing which immediately throws off any calibration.
