    May be a moot point, but I want to get a new monitor, but don't want to spend more than say $150 - I realize you don't get much for that, but is there a 'better' monitor for photo editing than others in that range?

    Thanks!

    I can't say for sure, but it's likely that anything in that range isn't going to be the type of monitor that is best for editing photos.

    i have no issues editing photos on my 21" that came with my HP. nice resolution, good contrast....
    does the screen match EXACTLY what a printout would look like? unlikely, since i havent calibrated it. personally i think people can put too much emphasis on the monitor. granted, i dont shoot for natgeo or even dig BMX magazine. ;)

    Under $150 I would suggest you to check out 23-Inch ASUS VH236H Widescreen Monitor. It has HDMI, DVI-D and D-Sub inputs and built-un stereo speakers. It is also equipped with a special VESA wall mount in order to put the monitor on the wall.
    It is a perfect combination of latest technologies, stylish design, quality and price

    Buying a monitor for editing can be a nightmare. This article can be very helpful in understanding what you want to get to and to find the best options within your budget. www.Clarkvision.com: Choosing and LCD Monitor for Photo Editing
    The dell ultra sharp monitors seem to be a good, lower budget option. I don't know if you are going to find anything under budget there. The lowest UltraSharp I see is $179. Might try ebay.
    You can always call Tiger Direct and they will help you over the phone in getting the best fit within your budget.

    I was just fixing to say the same thing. I picked mine up Friday (not in the morning, we waited until late in the evening to go out).

    I must say, steping up from a 19" widesren, it's a phenominal difference.

    It is a little tall though. I had to make a stand for mine, to fit it under the cabinet where I have mine. If space is an issue, be sure to keep that in mind.

    Next project will to be make a portrait mount for my 19" to put it on the side.

    On a side note, this ay be my first post, I've had the account for some time, but haven't posted before.
