Computer Monitor

Putting together a computer setup for photography. I would like to get a 24"-27" and stay under five hundred dollars. But would like to get the most out of my $. Any help and ideas would be great! Thank You

Check out the HP Pavilion IPS backlit monitors. I purchased a 25" model from Best Buy from just over $200 earlier this year. It was on sale at the time. Lots of "real estate" means you can have several apps open at the same time.

I just bought this one Amazon but in the 23" version. It is great and very cheap!

If your budget allows I would recommend a dual monitor setup. Many computers now have multiple video outputs in the form of various VGA, HDMI and Display Port. Your incremental cost would be for a second monitor.

I'm with dakight. 2 monitors is so darn handy. I recommend the Samsung line of LCD backlit monitors. They are very nice and the colors seem quite real.
