Well I was hoping someone would have asked this question already but I think I need to get a new LCD. Right now I've got a Dell 2408WFP and it's driving me crazy. The colours are all off. I bought a Spyder 3 Elite to calibrate it and although it's much closer I still feel it's off and the shadows are terrible. I'm a graphic designer by trade and so colour on my LCD is very important to me. I took a look at both the Apple Cinema displays (old and new) and noticed that the new LED LCD's seem to have substancially better specs. New: http://www.apple.com/ca/displays/specs.html Old: http://www.apple.com/ca/displays/cinema/specs.html The contrast ratio is the biggest difference with 1000:1 on the new one and 700:1 on the old one. I'm looking at the 24" (new) or 23" (old). Thoughts? Also how big a deal does everyone think the glossy background is on the new LED LCD's? Are there any designers who have a glossy background and find it doesn't bother them?
