    Large and accurate, but not very expensive?

    not really. i was just looking at some and i found a few 22-23 inchers around 300 bucks. im just curious as to what brands and certain aspects people on here look for in a monitor.

    For color accuracy, Lacie's are generally the industry standard. Just look at how much they are at B&H.

    Lacie is like totally out of his range. A mere 20" Lacie (the cheapest I could find) was like $800US!

    I like photography... but not enough to spend $5,000.00 on a Lacie monitor... lol

    I have an Acer x223w and it's great. The colors are awsome and has a high resolution. It's 22". I got it for $218 but I think my boss made a mistake and sold it to me for too little lol. When I got it I googled it and the cheapest one I found was about $300.
