  • Monitors: BUDGET Monitor Suggestions?

    I'm looking to spend the least amount possible for a monitor (21" or bigger) that would be sufficient for a higher end amateur.
    Most of what I do that goes to print is family portraits and graduation pics.
    By 'go to print' I'm talking Walmart here, but you can get acceptable results on a good day.
    Sadly, I'm trying to keep it under $200 if possible.
    If anyone can make some recommendations, or at least tell me what to avoid, I would greatly appreciate it.

      Thanks Pictus. One reviewer on Amazon loved it and gave it 5 stars.
      The other, a 20 year photographer, hated it and gave it 2 stars.
      I saw $165.47 and fell in love. I may get that one.

            Guidance on purchasing a monitor

            Hi, It has been a few years since anyone has posted any recommendations on monitors for retouching. I was wondering what people's current recommendations are?

            I'm currently using an iMac, 5k, retina 27", late 2015, calibrated with colormunki, as my main monitor. I know Apple monitors...

            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 question...can you help?
            by Jon
            I just invested in a new desktop, laptop, and printer. I am also getting some new camera gear. I picked up a monitor knowing it wasn't really the caliber I wanted, but what I could afford at the time and what the salesman shot me for a price with the other stuff. It is a HP w2338h 23-inch Diagonal...

            What do u think about this monitor?
            by Isedo
            Hi all,

            I'm thinking about buing this one to attach like a second monitor on my laptop (Sony Vaio). It's about 280 euros, of course it's not a Eizo but reading the tech info it seems to be a very good monitor.
