Hi all
I am in the market for a new monitor and I wanted the opionion of some fellow phtograher. My budget is 600-800 but could be more if its worth it. I also would prefer it not be a CRT. So airlines what should I do.

If you go for a TFT ensure it can display true 16.7 million colours and not 16.2 million, its is not so much the number of colurs but the method in which the monitor reproduces the correct colour. I suggest a search on google will provide more detail than I can give here.

Also most 19" monitors have the same dot pitch as a 17" when displaying 1280x1024 as well as 22" monitors have the same dot pitch as 20.1 when displaying 1680x1050, therefore the smaller of the two has better clarity, get my drift?

Most importantly whatever you go for it should be calibrated to ensure correct colour display, although it makes no difference to me because I am colour blind!

cheers

Kevin

Hi Matt - you have a similar budget to what I was aiming at when I upgraded a few months ago.

I found that I needed to spend around £1K for an EIZO, which are exceptional having seen a few. In the end, and after several comments from people on the forum I went for a Samsung 244t.

Its a great bit ok kit and I'm delighted with it. As already mentioned calibrating it is essential and in that regard the 244t has the usual brightness and contrast settings but also includes functionality to alter red, green and blue during calibration.

I'd have no hesitation in recommending that one to you.

Good luck in your search.

Garry

Hey Gary what made you not get the EIZO? Thats what I am leaning to? Also what does everyone thing of Widescreen vs normal.

Hi Matt - it came down to the additional cost and the fact that the Samsung had several great reviews - I concluded that the extra c.£300 was not worth it. Having said that Eizo do seem to manufacture outstanding screens.
