If you have the money, nothing is too big. Get a 32" LCD.

Sony at NewEgg

I'm thinking of upgrading my monitor... I use lightroom and CS3. I want to be able to have multiple large samples of images up at the same time for comparion. (lighroom is particularly good at that) So, I'm thinking of getting a 24 inch monitor but my wife said that would be too big. Think she is right? Is there "too big?"

Thanks, simpson.phanfare.com

slightly off-topic, but since I don't do games much how much should I pay attention to response times? For instance, this looks like a really fine monitor (93% adobe colorspace), but with its 12ms response time it seems a bit on the slow side. Would that matter for photo work?

As far as I can tell NewEgg does not let me narrow a search down by panel type. Does anyone know of a good website that does?

12 ms is fast enough for photo editing. Here are a few articles.

Thanks but I was referring to the different type of panel technologies.

Oh, I guess I need an S-IPS Panel with wide viewing angle since I don't like to sit right in front of the thing all the time.

I wonder what my 19 " Samsung Syncmaster 174v panel technology is?

I know my laptop is TN type since I can't see anything if I tilt it up or down.

That's quite a distance. I wouldn't go below 21 inch then. And your first estimate seems to be right, I also think a 24 inch would go nicely.

At home I have a Dell laptop, the screen resolution is high, therefore the images appear smaller than on my office monitor. If I try to change the resolution, the images appear larger but are unfortunately less sharp. So my question is, could I attach a second monitor to my laptop that would solve this problem?

24 is nice - 30 would be very nice - don't like the 22" panels they're TN (not true colour)

the larger the desktop TFT the bigger the res - res is what u need for photo editing :) i'm happy with my dual 1600x1200 setup atm..

Citymars - u can indeed hook up another screen to your dell :)

i haven't read all the posts but i have a 19" lcd at home and i prefer my dual 17's at work, once you use dual monitors you'll never go back, i'd be willing to bet you would like dual 19's over a 24 anyday and it would probably be cheaper as long as your video card on your pc is already dual capable (or you have a video card and an onboard video on the motherboard)

That is what I have done. My samsung can support a higher resolution then my laptop screen, so if you have a d-sub monitor connector sticking out the back or side or wherever it is then it works. When I grab a window and move it from one screen to the other it is smaller because of the resolution change. Try it, your video card might have a limit though, I don't know.
