    I use Aperture on my 27"iMac. I don't have a lot of extra cash, but at times I wonder if I have accurately calibrated the White on my screen.

    What brands of ext monitors are popular with photographers? And their reasons for the choice.

    I shoot with Nikon equipment and do processing in Aperture.

    The asus pb278q is a vey good monitor, it has a matte panel and you will save a lot o money than a Thunderbolt Display.

    Isn't TB important only when streaming movies, or do I have that wrong? Got lots of USB 3 ports available.

    Eizo for me. Along with an eye-one (eye1?) calibrator, you can get really accurate and repeatable colour. Ergonomics are good, matte screen is great. Much more accurate representation of final output.

    Mine (22") is attached to a late-2009 27" iMac glossy screen. iMac is hopeless for image adjustments, just too contrasty, colourful and glossy. Great for watching movies, reading text and surfing the web though.

    Eizo's aren't cheap though. Dell U series are a good (cheaper) alternative.
