    Hallo photographers and retouchers!

    Do you have something to suggest as an alternative to 'Apple cinema display'?

    Some weeks ago i was going to buy 20 inch one, but suddenly it is gone from market. The others (biggers) from Apple is not affordable to me at the moment.

    Wonder what brand/model could go as quality alternative (or maybe even better).
    I believe there could be cheaper ones than the apple monitors with the same quality.

    (BTW: i do not need a big one, 20-22 inch is very good for me. My budget at the moment ~500-600 euros)

    Please give an advice what can i get with my limited budget for a retouch work!

    Thank you very much! [​IMG]

    I've been doing a bit of research on monitors myself because I'm going to build a new computer soon. And just so you know, you can get a LOT of monitor for 500-600 Euros. It's definitely not a "limited" budget for the most part. Here are a few of the monitors I'm looking at (most are 22"):


    • [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0017AR13G?ie=UTF8&tag=carlscorn-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B0017AR13G"]Acer V223-WBD 22[/ame] - 22", cheap (~$170), and has received TONS of great reviews. If your budget is 500-600 Euros, you could get two and still have some money left over.
    • [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001VE5VDK?ie=UTF8&tag=carlscorn-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B001VE5VDK"]SCEPTRE X24WG-1080P[/ame] - 24", lots of great reviews, full 1080p resolution, and just a bit more expensive (~$250) than the Acer. A pair of these would still be in your price range.
    • [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001RCTALK?ie=UTF8&tag=carlscorn-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B001RCTALK"]NEC Display Solutions P221W-BK[/ame] - 22". At the top end of your price range, but comes with monitor calibration sensor and software. I have been using an 18" NEC LCD for the last 5 years and absolutely love it.
    I've pretty much narrowed it down to those three since I'm in the same position you are budget-wise. Hope that helps!

    ah, RushNP774, just tried to figure out - amazon.com not delivering to ireland :(

    And i cant find any of those in local online shops :(((
    how annoying :(
    Will go to some electronic sale agencies to ask about those.
    I like the NEC, also in anyway i'll need to get a calibrator.
    This one would be perfect.... but not sure i can get it here.

    I am considering some of those, at the moment... but not sure.

    NEC - 19IN LCD EA191M 19 inch: around 300 euros

    HP - LP2475w 24 24 inch: around 550 euros
