Please recommend me an external monitor for my MBP15
uhm so many variables !
Budget, size, what are you going to use it for ...
without telling us your uses it is going to be pretty difficult also budget would help in giving you recommendations.
Eizo is a good brand, apples display tends to be good as-well.
If you want to go cheap but good quality, I would say Acer. I throw those at my techs as second monitors and they love them. For me tho, Cinema (TB) Display is the best. I love my Thunderbolt since I can keep everything plugged into USB and the network. Only complaint is they forgot the headphone jack.
Try this one:
I usually go with Dell when looking for a second monitor.
I'm not a fan of Apple's new glossy displays. But the old 30" Cinema display is nice!
I use the HP ZR24w with my MacBook. Here's some features of the ZR24w:
sRGB (72% NTSC)
178º x 178º viewing angle
1920 x 1200 resolution
DVI and DisplayPort
matte (aka anti-glare) screen
I love this monitor. The only downside is that the scaler doesn't work properly if you plug in a DVD or Blu-ray player into it and want it to scale to 1920 x 1080. It will be in 1920 x 1200 mode, thus making the picture stretched vertically. This is only a problem if you want to connect something other than a computer (like a DVD or Blu-ray player, or video game console) to this monitor. If you're only using it with a computer, it will be fine.
