The cheapest decent imaging Monitor is the Eizo FlexScan S2110W, it's 21 inch, But your looking at 516...........There are cheaper but they will be no where near as good.....Smile

Many thanks for the information. Visiting PC World to-day for a demonstration. Will keep the forum up-dated on any decision I make.

I asked the other day if people knew anything about this monitor , but have not had any responses yet. It looks good from the specs and I am considering getting one.

well it certainly looks well specced Ian, as does the Samsung one.

I sometimes wonder if there's a bit of snobbery attached to monitors. I use a pretty basic Philips flat screen (my second after the first was invaded by thrips) and find it perfectly adequate. My spyder calibrates it fine, my prints look good, whether from my own printer or from an online supplier; certainly none of my customers have ever complained, so what more do people want?

well am really interested in this topic as am wanting to get a flat screen monitor myself but just for more room on desktop ;-0)

went to friends over the weekend & they have one...pics looked AWFUL!!! all elongated and yucky colours / contrast etc... sorted out their colour a bit but didn't like to mess too much as not my PC lol

anyway, am rather down in the dumps now as i only can afford about 100 quid at the most ;-(
will just go away & cry quietly.....

Join the club Kitsch (can I call you Jo?)......actually I saw a couple of 19 inch monitors in Tescos on display and the colours looked superb, very sharp too.....one was 125 and the other was 155. Cant remember the brands tho.....I dont think you have to spend that much to get a decent monitor these days.
