    hi

    could i please have any suggestions for display monitors to hook up to my macbookpro.

    I am looking for a 24 inch size screen.

    Programs that I use or will be using are photoshop,illustrator,indesign and flash...

    I have seen apple, dell, hazro, eizo all mentioned but never specifically for this reason....

    budget 200-300 pounds

    is there a optimum contrast, ms etc that i should aim for?

    any help would be great!!

    thank you in advance for advice...

    I'm sure you want one with IPS panel. Here is thread about Dell's IPS paneled display for great price

    Dell 2409WA if you can find one. It has IPS panel.

    I have BenQ E2400HD and I've liked it a lot. 24" 1920x1080, HDMI, VGA, DVI, built-in speakers etc. All for 239€. Great for me but I guess colors matters you? Then it ain't the best choice, but still OK.

    hp LP2475w

    8-bit IPS panel, more inputs than you can use, a sweet gamut, and it looks pretty professional.

    However if you want to go the extreme-superduper-chicken, you want a LaCie, Eizo or NEC SpectraView.

    However all of these are out your range, all ranging the 1k mark.
    LaCie: click

    NEC: click

    Eizo: liek color
