I have been looking at monitors for photo editing and know there are fantastic screens out there but unfortunately also with fantastic prices. Any recommendations for a monitor at a reasonable price. The best Revo reviews for a cheapy was overall score of 9.8 for an LG. 27" The price at Ebuyer (147) was so cheap though it did tend to put me off

I'm using a Philips 227E4LHA. Just over 18" x 10" and 99 from Currys. It's colour rendition is bang on due to the extensive calibration software that comes with it. I'm very pleased with the thing. It just plugged and played.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Hi Stan,

I've had a 24 inch Dell Ultrasharp for a few years. 1920 x 1200 rather than usual 'HD' 1920 x 1080. The key feature is it is an IPS type display which means it looks the same from all angles and renders colours truely.

I too have one of these - as Bill says being an IPS diplay, you can view from a wide range of angles without losing colour rendition/ brightness. Being IPS is more expensive - had mine about 3 years and was about 200 and covers most of the sRGB colour range IIRC It's a U2412M

Likewise, we use Dell IPS monitors. They are excellent and also not too severe in terms of contrast, so easy to use for long periods of time. The reproduction on some screens can be very OTT and tiring for the eyes.
Best regards, John

Thank you all for the input. It seems that an IPS type screen would be the way to go. Time to start brain washing Mrs Snap perhaps

Another vote for the Dell Ultrasharp (with a 16x10 screen ratio rather than 16x9)

Hi I also use a Dell ultra sharp. I have had it for about 3 years without problem and I calibrate it with a colour monkey.
