    I am looking for a good monitor for my new Mac Pro -- not sure if sticking with Apple is the way to go as I have heard some great things about Samsung (244T in particular), NEC and others. Will do quite a bit of video editing and photo editing so color matters.

    Can you offer your advice, experience or even feedback on the Sammy 244T?

    Thanks.

    LG makes some KILLER 24"s and they are great with warranties if you ever have problems. look into it

    Since it sounds like color accuracy is important, you are likely best off going with a IPS-based panel like the ACD. They're the most expensive panel, but they do offer the best color accuracy.

    If you hardware calibrate it, the Dell 2408FPW would be a solid choice. Reviews that have performed hardware color calibration have noted it's color accuracy at that point is quite good. And the S-PVA panel it uses is better for video playback then IPS (deeper blacks, I believe).

    Bubba,
    I have seen the NEC highly rated on CNET. Do you have a particular model that you have good experience with?

    I was looking at the Samsung 244T but see that lower quality DVD playback (though not a big deal for me) lowers its rating....
