Hi, it is maybe offtopic, but i need answer from best photographers here so didnt know where to post it.

Can You please share what monitor are you using for picture editing? I have been looking for years for replacement of my 24" Sony Trinitron but CRTs are not in sale anymore and all TFTs looks so crappy to me (at least those i looked). Please vote and if you are satisfied with color representation of your actual monitor, please write down mark and exact type.
I have also one TFT monitor to compare image on "web export" but not as primary one. PM is also welcome for those without access here.

That Eizo looks really good. I bet it would be pricey too over all possibilities.

I don't have a CRT to compare it to anymore but the results (print) that I get from it vs a calibrated Viewsonic VP2130b are better. I use a dual monitor setup. The Viewsonic was my primary display until I added the Eizo earlier this year. Is the difference enough to warrant the difference in cost? I'm honestly not sure. Calibration is easier. It holds calibration better. It seems to be more durable. Color / shadow rendition is definitely better. I'm glad that I bought it but can't recommend it for everyone.

I absolutely love my Samsung SyncMaster 215TW Black 21" LCD Monitor

Check out the specs here:http://www.pcworld.com …18188474/userre​views.html (external link)

I did a ton of homework when I was in the market and for photo editing this one really stood out.

I have an Acer AL2616W (external link) and an Acer AL1913. They are both great photo editing units, especially the 26 incher with it's high contrast ratio.

Just picked up two 24" Soyo LCD monitors last week. I like them a lot so far. Both calibrated using spyder3 elite. Got them for $300 a piece and best thing is that they use MVA panels so they are true 8 bit color. None of that TN crap. I would have gotten Dell's 24" monitors, but they are another $150+ for theirs. These "cheap" Soyo monitors have gotten pretty good reviews for being a very basic computer monitor.

Dual 1920x1200 res does wonders to my work flow capabilities now. This coming from my old 2005FPW dell 20.1" LCD.

interesting discussion here starts. truly surprising how CRTs are leaving desktops. who would have thought. All TFT i seen personaly (and some of them was really expensive) never had a dark black, colors and contrast like my old trinitron. will have to go to some specialized shop i guess to check it out again.

Anybody know about the NEC LCD2490WUXi? It's supposed to be relatively the same as the LaCie 526, but $1,000 less.
