It's about $700, but I bought a refurb for $490. Shipping was another $50.

Goes for about £560 here which is roughly the same, rarely see refurb stock here.

Thanks for all the information. I have narrowed it down between the Mitsubishi 2070 and the LaCie ElectronBlue IV.

Has anyone heard about the LaCie monitors? Pros/Cons? And the big question, is the color management option worth the investment (both monitors offer it)?

I thought the LaCie were simply re-branded Mitsubishis.

As for the calibration unit, I asked Mitsubishi and they told me it could be added anytime later.

Real-world dream monitor? I'd say Sony's Artisan. Built-in and very well integrated color calibration, with extremely good linearity and tone. Not cheap at $1600 for a 21" set, but a lot cheaper than the nearest competition (Barco, at $3K+).

NEC's DiamondPro would be my next choice.

Okay Sony has been added to the list. I will do some research on it. Thanks for the replies.
