Well, I think I'm finally going to buy an external monitor for my laptop...my color calibration just isn't cutting it on the MBP, so I'm going to get a monitor...the only problem...which one? I have set a $1,000 limit for the purchase. While I like the look of the Apple displays, they don't get very good reviews at ShootSmarter. They have a 1920x1200 native resolution (great), contrast ratio of 700:1 (ok), response time of 14ms (ok), and a brightness of 400 (so-so) on their 23" units...price is just under $900, which is under my budget (GREAT). Eizo, by contrast, has a CE210W (21.1"), with a native resolution of 1680x1050 (so-so), contrast ratio of 1000:1 (great), response time of 8ms (great), and a brightness of 450 (great)...price is just under $1,200 (not-so-great). This monitor was not rated by ShootSmarter, but its big brother, the CE240, was rated quite high. Then I found a Samsung 244T...24", 1920x1200 resolution (great), contrast of 1000:1 (great), brightness at 500 (great)...price is just under $700 (WOW!). I checked some user reviews on Amazon, and all 5 reviewers gave it 5-stars. So I think I've talked myself into the Samsung...it got consistantly 5-star reviews on Amazon from users, so I like that about it...any suggestions? Thoughts? Any other ideas?
