Three weeks ago I bought a LaCie 19" monitor...I was REALLY excited because it was a great deal on a monitor reputed to have very accurate color reproduction. Lately I've begun to do my homework on color management, because I want to be in a position to print stuff I draw without the colors going silly on me, so I was just THRILLED about it.
Unfortunately the monitor I bought was defective so I had to ship it back for repairs (had to pay my own shipping too, hmph!). And then the replacement was defective too! And monitors are not fun to ship around, as you can imagine. So I'm not really interested in playing the russian roulette of "will the third be defective too?".
Can anyone recommend to me which monitors out there, NOT in the 4-digit prices, are reputed to be good with color reproduction and are generally good for digital painting?
