Well I know there aren't monitors specifically made for colorists, but I've been rocking an 8 year old CRT monitor and will eventually switch to something else. Part of the reason I haven't taken the jump to a fancy flat panel monitor is because most flat panel monitors I've seen have shitty color accuracy and look washed out. The only flat panels I've ever seen that were as awesome and accurate as my CRT were very nice huge widescreen Dell monitors on my former college's campus.
While I'm not looking to upgrade soon as I would like to keep using my CRT until it no longer works, I would at least like to have some options. What would you guys recommend? Right now I am leaning towards a Dell monitor as it's the only monitor I've seen that I've liked.
(Also, if you hate Dell, keep the hate out of here. all my computers have been Dells and have worked beautifully so I don't care how amazing you are that you built your own computer for a fraction of the cost. )
Cost is not an issue, space however is thanks to the way my computer desk is designed so I'm not looking for a massive monitor.
