How bad is a low budget monitor?
Feb 17, 2009

Hi!

I'm looking to buy a new LCD monitor but I have limited budget and options. First take into consideration that any LCD I buy has to be shipped to the Dominican Republic, thus i'll end up paying double the original ammount.

Currently I have an 17' AOC LCD panel which is 100% rubish. Color changes if I don't seat perfectly direct to it, and even then I'm pretty sure colour aren't very representative of the reality...

I can buy locally a DELL E228FP for US$500, a DELL SE198WFPV for US$250 or a Samsung 2043NWX for around US$275. Anything higher than that is a US$800+ Apple cinema screen.

Would you recommend any of those panels or should I get one on Amazon or similary for arround US$300-US$350?

I'm just starting to make money out of photography, so I don't need the biggest and better, just something that is decent.
