    Today I purchased a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Cable from my Apple Store. I got home and hooked it up to my Sanyo HDTV, and the TV just has a crappy picture. I have tried everything. I am a WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHER so what is a good monitor for photo editing that I can hook up to my MacBook Air? I am willing to spend up to $150.00. Thanks very much!

    Is you air set to the native screen res of the tv? If not this causes a lot of rubbish picture problems with hdmi cables. Check this out first before spending on a new tv

    For this kind of money, you will be hard pressed to find something with stellar color accuracy, but you may know this already. I find increasingly attractive deals on new and refurbished monitors popping up all over www.slickdeals.net, a deals site that I frequent. I suppose a CRT is out of the question?

    For that price you might want to visit Craigs List. If you had more to spend, something like a Dell Ultrasharp is a good starting point. The new thunderbolt is a nice looking monitor, but not the best for photographers. However having it mimic a docking station does make it a very attractive. :D

    If you are a photographer, you will be REALLY hard pressed to find a monitor with good color accuracy for even twice that price.
