And any recommendations on what monitor calibrating tool I should buy with it? I'm thinking Spyder 3 Express.

I'd risk it...

And nothing less than the Spyder3 Elite or X-Rite EyeOne Display2 or you're wasting your money.

I use a Spyder3 puck (taken from a Spyder3 Express kit) combined with ColorEyes Display Pro software.

MacMall is supposed to be pretty legit, and thats a really good price on that monitor. Amazon has it for I believe $225.

I just want to thank you Sunny8 .... I just ordered what the MacMall site says is the last one...I hope it goes through...$129 is a great deal...The nice thing about it is that it can display 2 PCs via both DVI and VGA inputs, just like my 22" current Compaq CRT that will now go to the bullpen in case any problems arise...hope not...

Here's a good review with help for calibrating it on the cheap...
