    New monitor, any suggestions?

    I'm looking to get a new monitor and was seeing if anyone had any suggestions. I do a lot of color correction so good and accurate color is a must. The last place I worked at doing color correction was still using the old school Lacie CRT monitors! They hurt your eyes, but they were accurate, hahaha.

    I used Mac LED Thunderbolt display

    http://www.apple.com/displays/

    I'm very satisfied with the result...but It's expensive $999

    About color correction, you might be need Color Calibration hardware, like xrite.com or spyder.datacolor.com

    At my last full time job I was working on a 27" thunderbolt display, they are super nice. I was using it for video work, not color correction though. I wonder how they hold up with doing that type of work. This would be at the top of my budget but still doable.

    Just researched monitors a couple of months ago when upgrading my system. I found the Dell UltraSharp U2713HM to be the best choice. It's reasonably priced and the image quality is great.

    I've never heard of this line of Dell Monitors. I am going to research them and see what there all about.

    See the Ezio ColorEdge line. They are really good. If you buy a cheap LCD, you will never have a good color.

    I know you really get what you pay for with LCD's, and you are right a large chunk of them are awful for color correction. I wonder how these compares to the HP Dreamcolor series. I work on one of those and it was pretty awesome.

    I think Eizo comes with the best calibration options and usefull soft for doing it. And last but not least - the made it in Japan. ;)

    +1 for Dell UltraSharp. I have a couple of the 30" panels. They are heavily anti-glare coated though, so try to see one in the wild before you pull the trigger.

    For what amount of money you count?

    You can buy cheap LG monitor (like LG 22 EA 63) for ≈200 bucks, but he has a bad stand.

    I use only Eizo ColorEdge CG243W and CG241W [hardware callibration], perfect for everything. You can think about new Macbook Pro with Retina display. 2in1, good display and laptop.

    Be sure to look in the store before buying.
