    i am looking to purchase a Monitor to enable me to use my MBP as a desktop when i get home with a wireless keyboard and mouse. Anyone know which is the best monitor to go for? ideally between 21 and 27 inches? i was looking at a samsung but i have heard Dell ultrasharp are quite good also? Any advice would be greatly appreciated?

    what about the thunderbolt display? I know it is kinda pricey, but the ability to daisy chain, it has speakers, and you can plug your peripherals into it is why I will be going that way.

    The answer is going to differ based on your definition of "best."

    Depends on what you are looking for.
    Gaming as in speed. 3D support, best picture quality for editing.
    Good ergonomics, other extra features.
    What price are you aiming at?

    If it is just office work and a bit of movie watching one can just get a rather cheap model which will do fine. Everything else is a waste imo.
    Ultrasharp are good yes but best depends on the definition. The panels are about equal to the Apple thunderbolt displays just matte.

    This is the best monitor review website I know.

    Depends on your budget. The Korean S-IPS monitors from eBay are quite successful

    Thanks for that, I will only be using it for general use and movies so I think I may take your advice and look at the Samsung 2410 or dell.

    Obviously, it is Apple Thunderbolt Display. Apple is best for Apple ;)
    The question is would it be money efficient for a set of features you require.
