Hey everyone, I'm in the market for a new 22-24 inch monitor for editing my photos. The budget is under 300 dollars, preferably closer to 200 but I can be somewhat flexible.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

How does this help him? If by your sarcasm you meant to say "You will never find a 24 inch monitor for that price" then you are wrong. With a quick search, I found plenty of monitors under $250 that are 24''.

If you were being sincere and actually meant "Have an enjoyable time while shopping for monitors" then you can forget what I said.


Box81, take a look at this http://www.google.com/products?hl=en&safe=off&q=24%20inch%20monitor&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wf
Note: This was a 5 second search. I'm certain that if you put more time into it, you could find many more options.

I understand that was a 5 second search but I'm looking for opinions. The best opinions are from people who first handedly use the product.
 
Well you can use Amazon and they usually have a lot of people who actually own the product and review it. I have a Samsung 26 T260 HD monitor which i think is very good. I would suggest the 24' Samsung P2450H. It's 230$ which is around your price range and it might even be more crispier and sharper than mine because of the 50,000:1 ratio and yours is a dedicated monitor. You can't go wrong with Samsung when it comes to TV and monitor IMO.

I'm extremely happy with my Samsung 24" (2443bw). I've since got a HueyPRO monitor calibrator which helps for colors but the monitor itself is nothing I can complain about.

Well it's much easier to search for opinions that are already posted online. Use that google search or go on amazon and find a monitor in your price range. Then read the reviews for that monitor. Amazon is usually really good for that. By "really good for that" I mean Amazon usually has a lot of reviews. Not necessarily informative ones but it's a start.

The OP edited (Last edited by Box801; Yesterday at 06:01 PM.) his 1st post several hours after I replied ( Yesterday, 09:58 AM). Originally, it didn't have the line "Any suggestions?"

But, you asked for suggestions
Any suggestions?
not opinions. :confused:
 
I can't give you good advice about what to buy, but I can sure as hell tell you what not to buy. Don't go cheap like I did and get a monitor with a 2500:1 contrast ratio. It sucks for photo editing and everything else, including gaming.
