Fav 17" Production Monitors
Posted 29 March 2011 - 06:44 PM
Aside from the Panasonic 17", which of the latest monitors do you like using as a reference monitor on set?
I need SDI, HDMI, Component and Composite inputs. 12v power option. Durability.
I don't need waveform or scopes.

I'm looking more in the <$3k range though, for use mostly in the field.
I'm wondering what people think of the 17" Datavideo, 15" Marshall, and the 15" Sony LCD's.

The Panasonic's are also favored in the industry and very robust.

The Flanders has a great image, with the same range of expanded waveform and vectorscope options, and really good viewing angle too. Personally I prefer the 17" Panasonic, the newer panel, 1760, esp if it has low hours. Much better blacks compared to the older 17". On-axis, the image is generally quite reliable for on set reference, though if being very critical you have to watch for shadow colouration and overall green/magenta shifting as the hours accumulate on the monitor.
