I am thinking about trying a LCD monitor. This Viewsonic CRT has been very good to me though. I am wondering if any of you can recommend a quality LCD. It does not need a lot of features other than color fidelity/accurate colors. I do not want pink white's and other such things. So recommend with that in mind, accurate colors first and foremost. Size doesn't really matter in relation to said issue. I would like to stay around a 1,000usd or below.

If you act fast, you can get a Dell 2001FP for $719 + tax.

If you're looking to go LCD and have a budget that large you can't go wrong with this deal.

How accurate is accurate?

The best way to get truly accurate colours is a good monitor and a hardware calibration device (eg. Spyder) to make yourself an ICC profile. That might cost a lil' bit more than your $1000 though, but if you're wanting to print digital photos for example, it can't be beat for accuracy.

As nutball said.

Plus, keep in mind that there aren't many LCD that are actually suited to do graphic/photo work, because of their (relatively) poor color accuracy/rendition. That is, even with an hardware calibrator (like, e.g., the aforementioned Spyder or the Monaco OptixXR) there are quite a number of lcds that won't give you anywhere near good results.

Should I name a really good LCD, that'd be any of the Apple Cinema HD, but they're quite out of your price range...
