Dell is cheap and good - lousy Indian service. NEC can be better - at a stiffer price for the graphics versions. Figure $1,000 for 24".

Did you kinda blow past the OP's "on a budget" statment?

$1,000 isnt really on a budget. Just sayin Roman

I appreciate all the options suggested on this thread. While my budget does not allow for an expensive monitor, perhaps some day it will be! In the meantime, I have learned about calibrators. Will put one on my wish list. Not sure there is room on my desk for 2 monitors, but it is something to consider. Never realized that increased brightness on the viewing screen might be the reason why photos that look fine onscreen turn out too dark when printed! I have been struggling to make the right adjustments to compensate... Have also recently discovered that some I thought were a bit washed out printed up just fine!

Love these forums - I am learning a lot.
