New Mini - 24"+ monitor recommendations for photographers
Jul 31, 2009

With the one small caveat - inexpensive - like sub $500, though there are a ton of 24" ones in the $200 range - I'm looking at a Viewsonic VX2433wm and Samsung 2433BW at the local Sam's Club - cheap and maybe not so hot?

I'm using an iMac G5 20" right now and want something at least this good display-wise.

Are inputs a big concern for the New '09 Minis - what, other than DVI-in should I look for? (I bought a refurb 2.0 4/320 9400 for $780)

Is 16:9 a BAD thing? Am I going to hate having a shorter screen height even in a 24"?

I've read to stay away from monitors that double as TVs...

Also I've read about the IPS panels vs TN - but maybe on my budget it's a moot point? LOL Eventually I will get some high end work and be able to pay for an Apple Cinema Display...

Anyway, thanks in advance for input and hopefully recommendations - look forward to becoming a Mini-ite
