    What would be a good 27 inch monitor for creating digital art. I'm looking for long-term durability and picture quality. I currently run a Macbook Pro 2010 but plan on upgrading in the future.

    All of the models listed on this page are good:

    I can't think of any others off the top of my head that are missing from that list, in that price range. You have loads of cheaper ones available, but I get the impression you aren't after one of the Korean imports or their ilk.

    The ASUS, Samsung and Viewsonic models use Samsung panels, the others are LG IPS. There isn't much difference, even for graphics work, so I wouldn't let that sway you.

    If you get a Dell, make sure to get the Dell UltraSharp U2713H, which is the version specifically tailored to graphic design.

    I have the NEC PA241W that comes with the calibration kit. I have had it for a few years now and honestly, it is impressive. I have also had Dells, Apple's offering (Cinema 30") and worked with Eizo's etc.

    Get what you think will fit your budget and above all - make sure you can easily calibrate it. I'll quit now just shy of telling you that the NEC with calibration is a very fair price for what you get.
