Um. Mines got tilt.   

And there are other builds in the list that have worked, but I've not got round to changing the tags yet  - oops. Roll Eyes

Reeally? Huh. I wonder if my tablet's defective or if I'm just stupid?  Grin

Very interesting. I'll have to play around with that.

The problem with the 18x25 tablet is that it's not the same aspect ratio as a 30" screen. The display is actually a little bit wider (I made a couple illustrations in the thread "Time to Step it Up?" that show the relative sizes.)

True true.

It seems a good idea to stick with 22". As far as a brand I now think ideally I'd want a Planar. They have a reputation for above average colour accuracy, many of their models have a portrait view feature, AND external power supplies! It's as if they were made for this stuff!

I'm probably not going to have my art printed in mass quantities any time soon, so I guess the colour accuracy is more a plus than a must, but the external power supply seals the deal.

Of course, the problem with such a high quality product is that there aren't too many broken and for sale, unlike Dell or Gateway. There is a 20" on ebay I'd like to get but before I can bid I need to convince the folks to set up a paypal and let me pay them back for it, as I'm a student with no credit card. So that auction will be gone before I can get that set up.

Although I have no hands-on experience yet I think it'd be a good idea for anyone going for a new build to take a good look at Planar as well.

So here's the Lo-down so far:

22" monitor, preferably Planar.

12x19 Wacom pad.

With that I'm going to dig for some schematics of a likely Planar model.

You could always dual screen.  I have one set up, with my nice 19" UltraBrite crt. Perfect colors Smiley

I wonder what LCD panel planar use. I doubt they build their own.  Might be a specific driver board though.
