    Hello

    I am looking to buy a monitor for connecting to the new MBP.
    I would like to know if the new Apple 24 LED monitor are any good or if I would be better off getting a different brand?

    I will be using it for graphic design and 2D/3D animation.
    I would prefer something under 500 dollars if possible.

    If I will do video editing, can the same monitor also be used ?

    Help please

    It sucks that you can't do a simple search and find the answer, but I'll help you all the same.

    Apple's LED display is the lowest priced H-IPS LED panel around. That makes it a great buy for the price. You will not find anything comparable in that sense. You can find less expensive panels that do not power your new MBP and aren't H-IPS and aren't LED. That's up to you.

    You can do video editing and graphic design on the same display. If you so choose.

    If you want something under $500 then you are in no way considering the Apple LED. I would look for a Dell 24" at that point or even the BenQ they sell at Newegg.com for something like $300. Awesome monitor.

    So do you think it is better than Apple's 20 Acd monitor?
    How about the glossy screen, do you think that will affect anything?

    I was disappointed when I noticed the lack of contrast due to reflections on the monitor surface.

    My desk lamp doesn't cause any problems on my LCD screen, and it is daylight-usable, but these glossy screen covers don't seem to like reflections.
