Please recommend a low-cost display
Dec 17, 2012

I'm on the lookout for a used Mac Pro and also need a display. Ultimately a wide-gamut Adobe RGB display which I can't afford for the time being, so right now I'm instead considering a low cost display which will be "good enough" for serious photo hobby and the occasional freelance work.

Later on, when I really need it, I can add a second display which will indeed be a wide-gamut pro photography type, and use that for editing/viewing the actual photos while the low-cost one will just be used for menus, Photoshop tool palettes, email/web etc.

I haven't decided on any specific size yet, but assume at least 20" is needed for serious work. Built-in speakers could also be nice but not essential. What's out there and what do you recommend I get for the most bang for the buck? And perhaps more importantly: what type of displays should I stay away from?
