  • Advice on affordable Monitor

    Does anyone know a good monitor that wont break the bank? I will need to buy one to continue working while my Eizo cg222w is taken back to the UK for repair.
    I would like one that is similar in spec but not so expensive as it is only going to be used as a standby monitor untill mine is repaired. With that said it will need to be good enough to perform good quality retouching.

    Thanks in advance.

    Well how about something like the NEC P221W, or if you want an IPS wide gamut (for a bit more), the PA271W? The SpectraView’s stack up to Eizo’s for a lot less money.

      Can Monitor Calibration Devices Flag a Bad Monitor
      by Jeff F
      I'm asking this here because I'm currently reading Richard's book on PSE 4. It occurs to me that no amount of calibration can fix a monitor for which the colors at the edge of the screen do not match the colors in the center. And I'm sure that there are other monitor problems which cannot be eliminated...

      monitor calbration
      by pavel123
      Could somebody please suggest a good monitor calibration package. I assume this was discussed here before, but somehow I am getting mostly old posts dating back to 2003 or so. Ideally I would be looking at under $200.
      My understanding is that Spider 2 is the most commonly used, but it gets a...
