Monitor suggestion?
7 months ago

I am shopping for a new monitor.  I am NOT a professional, I do retouch my own photos, I have 50 years worth of old pix that I am restoring.  My Viewsonic VP930b is not corresponding with my printer profiles that were made, the prints are coming out very dark

I have:

Calibrated the monitor  using the Spyder Pro 3

Used Spyder Print to do a printer profile.

The result:  The colors are very good and match however, the monitor is showing a beautiful bright picture in Photoshop, but the prints are very dark.  I am wondering if my monitor is going bad?  I am working with Data Color right now to solve this issue.

I need a suggestion for a monitor that will be a good choice but under $300.00. I can't justify spending more than that for home use.

Thanks
