Hi folks, I know this is a design forum, but I'd like to ask for recommendations on a 23" monitor? We work on print and on-screen items and since I'm going to be ordering six of these, I'd like to get as much advice as possible. Budget is £2-300 a screen. Many thanks in advance.

getting cheap hardware is not a goo idea considering you will use that for almost any task of your business. get decent monitors.
eizo, apple, dell.
Just ordered a bunch of these, but haven't seen them in person yet: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/revi…
By all accounts a good solid monitor.
We went with these as they have an 8bit IPS panel and good quality backlight. Cheaper IPS panels tend to be 6bit + dithering and are kind of fuzzy to look at. They're worse than PVA/MVA screens IMO.
If the NEC's are too much in the UK, this was my runner up: Dell U2410
Dell Ultrasharps are exceptional.
I recently got an EIZO - looks truly magnificent! :]
Best value IPS monitor I've seen
Been on the same 24" Eizo since 2004.
Still works perfectly. So...what uan said...spring for quality.
Anyone have an AOC I2353PH?
Been doing a little research on a new monitor and came across some good views. Looking to upgrade my Dell 2007WFP. This was a low cost suggestion in an article about good photo editing monitors.
VGA and HDMI input only - no DVI. Are people connecting directly from Mac laptops with HDMI these days?
ACD expensive but worth it. You get what you pay for. I have a dell next to it and it's night and day.
Dell's are great for their money though you def get what you pay for. They are a tad dim and have a slight yellow cast. If you need supremo colour rendition I'd go for the big guns like Eizo, Apple etc.
What are NEC monitors like.. does anyone have any experience with these?
- I've got the top one on that list. Would recommend it. I thought it was slightly better than the similarly specced DellFax_Benson
- and slightly cheaper at the time - but not much in it.Fax_Benson
- most people, like I'm doing now, will recommend whatever they bought in order to justify the decision to themselves.Fax_Benson
^ like any brand, they've got better and worse offerings. the PA monitors are the professional line, and are very nice. The EA are the consumer models... they may not be any better or worse than any other consumer model, you need to do your homework on how the technology stacks up. Look for an 8bit panel (not 6bit+) for graphics.
