    The Philips Brilliance series offers what it says on the tin: brilliant monitors. I have a 22" from that series and am very happy with it. Reasonably priced as well.

    Since I'm in the Netherlands, I won't suggest a supplier.

    Quote: Dell Ultrasharp 27"

    I'll second that. I treated myself to a Dell U2711 27" Widescreen UltraSharp Computer Monitor about a month ago and I have to say that it is absolutely brilliant. At 469 it did seem a wee bit pricey but I am very happy with it.

    The only downside is that it is widescreen which is a bit of a waste for photography purposes. I guess I'd rather have had another inch on the height and an inch less on the width. Mind you, I use it as half of a two-monitor set-up; maybe if I was using it as a single monitor, I'd welcome the extra width as it would allow me to comfortably have both my image and the PS palettes on the same screen.

    Beware, once you've got used to 27" then anything else just seems to small......Wink

    It's not the size of the screen that counts, but the use you put it to ......

    Can't fault my recently purchased Asus ProArt PA246Q .... only 24" though Wink

    I have just bought a 24" Dell Ultrasharp and am so pleased at the difference in quality. It is a 1920x1200 and photos that seemed tobe OK on my old 4:3 monitor seem so much sharper on this one. I am having to reassess quite a few pictures Smile

    I may wish in the future that I had got the 27" (for the vertical height as LF says) but for now I am happy.

    I have the 24" Dell as well and, likewise, am very pleased with it. I couldn't justify the cost of the 27" unfortunately.

    I have a Dell Untrasharp and I'm not very impressed with it.
    The viewing angle is a pain and if your not sitting at a perfect 90 degree to it, the highlights are off.
    Can never seem to get it calibrated properley either.

    There are many variations in Dell monitors that are supposed to be the " Ultrasharp " models, Its all down to the type of panel that was fitted at the various factories.....Sad

    You need to do some research on the actual panel fitted to your display, Because in general the Ultrasharp models are of the higher spec " IPS " panel types, These can be viewed from almost sideways on with only a negligable shift in colour.....Grin

    I have 2 Ultrasharp models here, They do not display the issues you mention.

    In conclusion, Either you have a very dodgy model, Or you have one fitted with the inferior " TN " panel type, Because the view angle you mention is exactly what you get on a TN panel.

    If you bought it recently, Take it up with your supplier, If its still in warranty, Have a word with DELL as they do a very good next day swop around service.....Wink
