    I use a LCD TN monitor for daily work.
    I use a CRT monitor (LaCie Electron 22 Blue IV) to work with colors and photographs.
    I thought about purchasing a LCD monitor to work with colors and photographs. I read reviews of existing technologies matrices. The majority of matrix LCD monitors still have significant shortcomings. It seems to me that the replacement of CRT monitors are not yet available. What do you think about this?
    I prefer Lacie monitors or appel, we have TFT LCD and the two go very well

    I personally regard these as the 'poor man's prepress monitor.
    But, in an environment where vitrually none of our clients (nor our competitors) have a color managed workflow - they do the job.

    At work, we've have spectraview 2490, with another screen for tools (one screen ain't enough)

    at home i have a not calibrated LG for gaming purpose. Still, since i work a lot with it, in the end, i try to get it as colorful as i can.

    Does anyone have a way to get a better color with a screen which can not be calibrated? (is it a real english word?)

    Eizo is a good monitor, if you select the top of the range.

    I use Dell U2410 IPS, calibrated with Xrite i1 pro. I think this display is very good for basic DTP works. Best price/quality choise.

    monitor + colorimeter

    Dell 3008WFP and Syper3Pro.

    My Spyder results were initially terrible giving a strong green cast that I had to manually dial down, but a replacement colorimeter from DataColor fixed this. Apparently there was a bad batch quite some time ago (~2 years ago or more).
