    Looking for any advice on what screen to get, the biggest issues are obviously colour accuracy and contrast ratio. I've got a RevA 12" PB so VGA out only which is a bugger. I do a lot of photographic post-production work so ideally I'd get a nice Sony Artisan CRT but I don't have the desk space sadly.

    I'm tossing up at the moment between the LaCie 20" Photon and the Apple 20" display, however if I get the Apple one it's an extra 200 or so for a VGA-DVI adaptor from Dr Bott to do the job properly...Is it worth the extra cash? Are there other options I should be looking at? Looking for a total under 800GBP (in the UK here) really.

    I would consider getting a new desk and/or making space for a CRT.

    As for LCDs, I am not an authority but the following seem well-recommended:

    Viewsonic vp912b
    eizo nanao flexscan l768
    dell 1905fp
    phillips 190p5eb

    all are 19", but we don't want to break your bank...

    good luck. consider my first sentence carefully.

    Formac make some well-reviewed models. Not 100% keen on the black feet... but I could learn to live with them.

    Am considering this model myself as I'm in the same situation – need good colour but have very limited space. Am unsure as to the exact specs and differences between Platinum, Oxygen & Extreme ranges...

    There are various ones in the £575-650 range from, my current favourites for UK tech stuff.

    Would something like this not do the same thing? Just curious...

    Edit: Scrub that. appleretailguy put it most succinctly...
