    I'm currently spending my days reading reviews and specs of 24" tft monitors. I think i've read them all, and can recite all the specs in my sleep. I know most of you will probably advice to buy the Apple Cinema Display's, and while they are cool, there are some other options.

    My biggest concern is actually that most of the interesting monitors have a wide gamut display, wich means that in every app that doesn't support color management all the colors will be oversaturated. Now that is basically the only thing stopping me from buying a new tft, so I would like to hear your experiences using these monitors on a Mac(book).

    It's basically a problem with the color management of software. The monitor is capable of showing 92% of the Adobe RGB spectrum, while the standard is sRGB wich has a lower color range. But sRGB is the standard for all graphics.

    Well, any input/help is appriciated.
