I use a shadow mask monitor at home and an aperture grill monitor at work.
There is a huge difference between the two. The shadow mask produces a much sharper, clearer picture. It’s much easier on my eyes, but different people have different preferences.
Some people say that AG displays have more vivid colors, and maybe that’s true, but I can’t really tell.
Here’s a quick explanation of the technical difference between the two. It’s amazing to me how these two completely different technologies can produce what is essentially the same end product.
