    Hey, has anyone had any experience with a good lcd monitor that is affordable (no more than $450)?

    I'm an artist and animator first and a gamer secondly so the color quality and consistency is of primary importance to me. I'd prefer an S-IPS screen to a TN screen because I hate it when colors look darker or there are different hues in different areas of the screen. I was going to get the Dell UltraSharp 2007WFP, but I called and it looks like it just got discontinued. [​IMG]

    Of course since I animate I want a screen that won't ghost or blur movement too bad, but my main concern is the color consistency.

    So what monitors do you like?

    Samsung 204B was a great monitor! 20.1" with 1600x1200 resolution. Great response time for gaming and after calibration reproduced good contrast, great colors and even backlighting. I used to own two of them.

    Nice! Thats a very well put together article. I dont know if I agree with all the ratings, but its still good. That article is the first I have seen put the Dell 30" above the Samsung 30"... I have owned both I can def say that the Samsung was a lot nicer and the one I stayed with!

    I used to love 940bw in 8 months ago and i wanted mainly for desktop and 360 use, but since ur an artist, maybe u should stick to CRT, since of colors in CRT are much real than LCDs, take black for an example.

    2nd this. It's a great monitor, I would recommend it to anyone. If you want a 24'' Though the Westinghouse I posted is great also.

    My Dell 2007WFP has been great to me. I've had her for about 2 years and still no dead pixels and the images are always quite crisp. Moved up from a 21" CRT and I haven't looked back since.

    CRTs are suppose to be better for "art" type things.
