Look into the Samsung 2443BWX.

Just bought one for $349 at the local Costco and I'm very happy, even still several members here recommended against the brand due to reliability issues.

I really don't want to sound mean or dismissive, but to be brutally honest it is virtually impossible to achieve truly hi-end, professional results using a $300-400 monitor.

Sorry to disappoint, but you really need to be looking at an Eizo ColourEdge or equivalent if you really are serious about retouching at that level.

Re: Which Monitor for Professional High End Retouc

Well Eizo ColourEdge is best but It's not affordable at present. So I'm thinking about Samsung Samsung 2443BWX 24" LCD suggested by FRANK LOPES . which have 160 degree Angle, 1000:1 Contrast Ratio. I do not know much about configurations.

will it work for me ?

Re: Which Monitor best Professional High End Retou

The angle of view and contrast ratio (among other things that seem to be important to monitor manufacturers) are irrelevant - I assume you will not be conducting all your retouching whilst sitting at a 160 degree angle to your monitor!

The one specification upon which you should base your purchase is COLOUR GAMUT. The closer the monitor can get to representing the full Adobe RGB colour gamut the better.

Unfortunately, the only manufacturer I know that actually provides colour gamut information is Eizo, though I may well be wrong.
