A local company here has stated that there is a little softness to the image on the 17 inch versus the 26 inch Panasonic. Can anyone confirm this?

Also, the 17 inch has the built in waveform display which could also be useful....does anyone use the waveform on the 17 inch and find it invaluable?

Also the 26 inch has the pixel for pixel setting, but I don't think the 17 inch does. Would you miss that feature if it was all you had?

We have an HD suite and had the 24 inch backlit Dell....didn't really pass our scrutiny, so now it is paired with a 19 inch 4x3 Dell as a dual monitor on the HD Mac. Looks great there! Our space in the suite is a little small for the 26 inch to sit on the desk...clients sit no more that 4 feet from the monitor, maybe closer. A 17 inch feels like the right size for now. We also have a 14 inch Sony PVM for standard def viewing with component. I think the 17 inch Panasonic would be a nice compliment except for the softening (if true) and the pixel for pixel.

Comments welcome.

Both monitors have the waveform...

the 17" indeed will soften a picture... so does the 26, but to a much lessor extent. The Pixel for Pixel option is also very useful especially if you're compositing.

The JVC monitors look better to me in general though... blacker blacks.

I'll second Jerry on the JVC monitor. Much better IMHO.

I'll third that. Had the Panny in my suite for two weeks and then went to an e-val of the JVC. Hands down the JVC is better in my opinion, comparing the same footage.

The only thing useful about the Panasonic wave form is if you use it on set during shooting.

Panasonic just announced the BT-LH1760 today. 120Hz refresh rate, hdsdi built in.

Click the "NEWS" tab at the top of the page to read the announcement.

"everything is broken" ......1st. coined by Esther Philips I believe.
