The costs between what seems like the reasonable high-end and the low-end seems relatively trivial as far as Im concerned, so in order to replace the ACDs I sold along with various Macs and also the Dell monitors I may need to move elsewhere, Ive decided to spring for some monitors that some of you print guys use at your place of work to look down your noses at the plebeian Dellers (despite in all probability being Dell owners for your home systems ) and berate on a regular basis on the inferiority thereof. Obviously in my case its for more than print use, and I would require that it can perform well with games and suchlike as well i.e. real-life normal use, as well as offer superior accuracy and image quality. The monitors *must* work on both Win and Mac (unlike the 23" ACD for example), especially if there is any associated software or hardware involved. Costwise it would depend on the improvement offered - I'd be looking for very noticeable improvements for somewhere around double the cost of the Dells/ACD's for example, and truly jaw-dropping quality at anything significantly over that. Given those requirements, what would you recommend in the 24 area and 30 area?
