LM 1760 vs LM 1770
on Oct 25, 2010 at 8:13:32 am

Though in Europe, I am seriously considering FSI monitor for CC suite - especially after pouring over the various Cow forums in trying to make an educated decision. I have looked at the spec sheet of the 1760 and 1770 and the only difference I see is in the "backlight" catagory. (Wide Gamut EEFL vs White LED matrix) I am not a technical guru... What is the major difference between the 2 models and why would I choose the 1770 over the 1760? Are their additional features on the 1770?

Hi Kim,

For your application you would actually want to get the LM-1760W.

As you correctly pointed out the main difference between the LM-1760W and LM-1770W is the backlight. The features are identical and the units also look virtually identical with respect to display performance.

What the white matrix LED backlight on the LM-1770W allows for are the following advantages:
1. The LM-1770W weighs 2.8 lbs less than the LM-1760W.
2. The LM-1770W is 12VDC whereas the LM-1760W is 24VDC, though both have standard AC power connections as well.
3. The LM-1770W only draws 27Watts of power compared to 44Watts on the LM-1760W.

As you can see from the list above these advantages are not really important in an edit suite environment. Rather, these advantages are compelling reasons to use the LM-1770W for field use applications where weight, 12VDC power, and power consumption are an issue.

In addition to the information above there are two reasons why the LM-1760W is a better choice for your application:
1. The LM-1760W is $200 less expensive.
2. Though most people would not be able to tell by eye, the LM-1760W typically has somewhat better white uniformity thanks to its EEFL backlight.

Thanks for the prompt reply Bram. Hopefully I'll get approval and will be able to order soon. I was initially attracted to the 1770 because it's lighter and would cost less to ship... but thanks for the other heads up.

No problem Kim. By the way, the LM-1770W actually costs a bit more to ship than the LM-1760W because of the higher value as all shipments are insured. Additionally, all of our monitors are quite light so carriers like FedEx, UPS, etc. will all calculate shipping based on volume, not weight, and the boxes are the same size. Hope this helps.

Crystal clear. Have a good day! We're already on the second half of Monday over here.

Thanks for the thread & head to head comparison. Should be purchasing a LM-1760W for my home rig shortly.
