Low cost HD Monitor

A quick tip - Ecost.com has a 17" Viewsonic widescreen LCD monitor that will handle HD and VGA very nicely for a bargain price of $590. I believe Provantage.com might stock it too.

Here is the link for Ecost.com:

This is the most cost effective solution I can find at present for viewing my HD work.

Regards

Andrew

Keep in mind, though, the max resolution on that monitor is 1280 x 1024. Full HD resolution is 1920x1080; however, the JVC cams still currently max out at 720p (1280x720). So, you'll be able to see all of the JVC can pixels now, but I think the new Sony HDV cam does 1080i/p. The only monitor I've seen that does full 1920x1080 is the Apple HD Cinema Display - also priced at quite a bit more than the LCD we're discussing. Let us know how the LCD works out (and how you're editing).

Low Cost HD Monitor

Yes, for now it is fine. Since the Sony won't be coming out for at least another year, possibly longer (in which time I expect to see a big drop in HD monitor prices), this monitor seems to be a good interim solution. I am very happy with it.

I am just setting up an AspectHD system
