    The Eizos are all remarkable displays. However, the CG241 has a VA type panel which gives worse off-angle viewing than IPS panels do. A better choice would be the CG243 (IPS panel), but that's even more costly. Like all the CG Eizo models, they have internal hardware LUTs which allows them to be very precisely and accurately calibrated (of course, you still need an i1 Display 2, or Spyder3, or equivalent).

    The Dell U2410 has terrific specs on paper (IPS panel, and a wealth of features), but the reviews generally suggest that it provides worse performance than the specs would suggest (particularly that it has a pink-ish cast which calibration fails to remove*–*like the early Apple Cinema Displays did). Avoid this.

    The NEC PA241 has an IPS display, hardware LUTs like the Eizos, and thus far extremely positive professional reviews. For all practical purposes, it should calibrate and perform almost as well as the Eizo CG243. I've just ordered one. I'll report back when it arrives, but I suspect the NEC PA241 will be the monitor you should choose for the near future. (Apparently it doesn't calibrate well with third-party colorimeters, so unless you already own an i1Pro or other spectrophotometer, you should consider buying it bundled with NEC's SpectraView II device: basically an i1Display2 adapted to handle the wide gamut of this monitor).

    I haven't seen any professional reviews of either the Asus or the HP.

      Monitor choices... Eizo Vs. NEC

      Hello - I'm new to this site I found it while researching monitors.

      I am working as an in-house prepress department. I deal with a lot of 4/c books that are printed domestically and overseas. I am presently using a Mac Cinema Display on a Mac Pro Quad-Core 2.66Ghz box.

      Eizo or Lacie LCD monitors?

      I'm currently using a 20" apple cinema display and thinking of upgrading to something better. I'm considering upgrading to either a Lacie or Eizo graphic LCD monitors. I notice on the cinema display, there's quite a bit of "burn in" where even if you move the image away, the mark is still...
