This is a hardware question for those of you who use Wacom or
other tablets to draw in Flash, which I do heavily. My beloved
flat-screen CRT monitor is flickering, fading and dying. I must
finally break down and shop for an LCD monitor for my PC. I've read
lots and lots of reviews, and found that the best ones for color
accuracy (which I need for TV color calibration) tend to use LCD
panels that also have the greatest input lag. It would drive me
crazy to draw freehand in Flash and have the line lag even a
fraction of a second between my hand drawing on the tablet and the
line appearing on the monitor. My PC is pretty recent and fast,
with a fast NVidia Quadro graphics card.
At this point I can't afford a Wacom Cintiq tablet, so that
isn't the solution.
I see this lag time issue discussed thousands of places for
gamers, but not in any artist or designer forums. I am not a gamer,
I am a cartoonist who draws freehand, using fast and loose strokes,
and needs to feel as comfortable as possible when drawing with the
computer. Where I live, there is no shop that would ever let me
test this issue.
I am therefore asking anyone here whether you have
experienced any such lag issue with LCD monitors, and which models
I might want to avoid for this reason.
