I think I'm having a problem with my screen for getting a lot of rejections lately..I have a dell screen rather old and if i check out my rejected photos on my friends screen i can see a lot more grain than I'm able to see on my own one. I have been thinking of purchasing an Apple Cinema Display screen 20inch (for other purposes also beside editing) and i would like to know if anyone has any experience with this screen?

Unless you already have a Mac and want a screen to match, don't waste your money on a Cinema Display. They're pretty good quality, but you'd be much better off with an equivalent model from Dell, Planar, or Eizo coupled with a calibration device.
Better to be nouveau than never to have been riche at all.

Hi Nick - I'd agree with first comment, if you have a Mac then its worthy of consideration as you will be able to adjust and fine tune the screen.
I run a Windows PC and looked at the Cinema Display when I recently upgraded. I recall that when combined with a windows pc the Contrast could not be adjusted, only the brightness, similar to many laptops.
In the end I went for a Samsung SyncMaster 244T, which is excellent and use an eye one display 2 calibration device.
I guess if you are not running a Mac I'd tread with caution unless you can get some feedback from someone running a Cinema Display of a Windows PC.

So in this case the Apple screen would still be a good choice? I have a good video card so the connection isn't a problem. Besides the apple what other screen do you recommend (same price as Apple Cinema 20")
