New Monitor Specs for Photography
May 2, 2010

Firstly, is there a way to subscribe to a particular post on this forum?

I have a tired 19" DELL 1900fp about 8 years old that has served me well but has a poor cal curve.

After trying to calibrate the monitor I realize it time for a new one.

There are so many parameters available for monitors and was hoping people can suggest must have features, color requirement, contrast, resolution, response time, etc....under maybe $300.

I will be using it for print matching images I send to the color lab; I have LR2.7 and PSCS4 suite.

Below is a link for a handful of 22" Dell monitors I chose for argument sake.

Do many people like a monitor that rotates into portrait view?

thanks in advance....
