    Hello people,

    I'm getting the Nikon D800 camera in the near future and thought of upgrading my monitor. My Dell 2405 is starting to die after 6 years(can't calibrate properly as the blue (RGB) channel is not working).

    I'm looking for a 27" Mac Cinema Display or something equivalent with Dell or Samsung. I looked at the Dell U2711 but it looks like it has some issues and the price is close to the Cinema display.

    I will be editing using Lightroom 4.2 for editing and printing photos.

    I looked at the Eizo and NEC but they are a little out of my price range although the Eizo 23-24 inch is in my price range. Does anyone here have any experience with the lower priced Eizos.


    Thanks.

    I have a Dell U3011; I wouldn't get a glossy display for photo work.

    Anyways I use a hardware calibrator.

    Maybe a Dell 2713HM?

    They seem quite well calibrated out of the factory in sRGB mode. You might need wider than sRGB though as your printing.

    Couple of other points it has in its favor are the 4 USB3 ports and the AG coating seems to be less pronounced than on previous models.

    Cheers.
