Need Help With Choosing a Good Monitor

  1. Hello,
    I posted a topic about my current monitor a while back. It's a Dell
    Ultrasharp but the problem is it's only 6-bits, a real problem for accurate
    color and contrast in post processing. Does anyone have any suggestions for a
    monitor that is reasonably priced and will serve my photographic needs of
    accurate color? Some even suggested a CRT monitor and that is not out of the
    question if need be. Maybe I could have a two monitor set up even! Thanks for
    the help.
     
  2. I've used a number of LCD screens, and none can match the inexpensive HP1130 I always go back to. Maybe there's an LCD screen out there that's good and I just haven't seen it. I prefer CRTs.
     
  3. apple ACD, worth every penny
     
  4. When my Trinitron CRT dies, I have my eyes on this reasonably priced LCD. If you don't want to read the whole review, skip ahead a few pages to the conclusion.<p>

  5. I use a Sony Arrtisan monitor. It comes with color calibration tools, I can work in different
    color spaces, and it's a CRT so what you see is much closer to what to what you get. IMO.
