    You don't want a Glossy screen! You do want another wide gamut to get close to the other display(s). Maybe you can find the old NEC P221W or go for their entry level SpectraView.

      it means glossy screens are not appropriate in retouching ?

        Glossy screens reflect like a mirror - you'll end up trying to retouch your nose!

          Less then ideal. If you can avoid them, do so.

            Very true! I can't do any retouching work until it gets dark outside, otherwise I see reflections of everything in my room in my glossy screen. Definitely avoid getting glossy screen!

                Exactly

                And it's 27", so I can see my entire living room reflected in it on a sunny day. Don't get me wrong, I love the machine, but it's inconvenient if you have to do a lot of retouching every day. I just always retouch in the evening.

                  I can understand their appeal when it comes to specs relative to price, but that reflectivity would annoy me. I can understand why you'd need to wait until evening. Stray light isn't ideal on any display really.

                    Anybody here using Dell monitors for high-end editing?

                    more specifically the UltraSharp series U2410 and U2211. both of them have good reviews regarding colour calibration and black depth on tftcentral.co.uk

                    they run at an average £200 - £300 on ebay, btw

                    Hello to the all retouchers outhere!
                    I'm Silvia and I'm an Italian pro photographer. Recently I bought a mac book pro and now my desire is to connect it with a good monitor for retouching.

                    Sirs,

                    Does anyone have an experience of using a laptop with a external monitor for retouching? Which laptop/video adapter is preferable and can be there any issues?

                    by anowt
                    It seems difficult to find any info regarding Mitsubishi monitors for professional photographic retouching. Such as finding all details related to all of the following: which ones they are, their color gamut+response time+refresh rate+bit depth+color accuracy+black point luminance.

                    So my...

                    May sound like an oxymoron, especially to those doing post processing for a living, but for many of us enthusiasts the quest for balancing affordability and quality in an monitor is a must. Is there something under $300? What should I look for when choosing monitor for retouching? Should I buy LCD or...
