I've been into photography for almost four years now and all this time I've been working with crappy TN-panel-based screens, namely a Sony SDM-S75D and a Samsung 206BW. After getting some prints that didn't look anything like what I saw on the screen, I think it's time to invest in a good screen (obviously taking into account that I'm a student and I don't do this for a living).
Thus, I'm looking for a screen with the following props:
- FullHD, or 1920x1200 or higher resolution. At least 22" desired (in order to keep my eyes' health)
- At least one HDMI (with DHCP) and one DVI.
- Good panel, IPS or something like that - I don't know much about panels, other than TN panels are crap.
- [OPTIONAL] Maybe hardware calibrated? I don't think there are any screens under 350€ with this feature.
Some time ago I did some research and found that the HP LP2475W was really hot, but calibrating it was essential as its factory defaults were very bad. I've also been looking at some S-IPS dell screens lately, and they look really good.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to knowing your opinions.
Thanks in advance.
