Talk about PC monitors of all kinds.

#6899 Hello everybody,
slowly I'm sick of reading all those online monitor reviews, it's about time to make a decision ;-) Hope You can help me with this.

I need a good multimedia display, but focused on amateur photo processing in Adobe Lightroom . After buying a monitor it will be calibrated using appropriate tools. RAWs will be processed in Lightroom and than placed on my website; the best ones will be developped to a paper in an exteral lab.

I've narrowed my search to 2 monitors:
1. BenQ BL2411pt (or Dell u2412m, but benq is slightly better, I guess)
2. Eizo FS2333

Is there anyone here who has actually seen both monitors (by both I mean Dell u2412m or Benq BL2411pt compared to Eizo FS2333, standing next to each other) and can tell me which one would be better for amateur photo processing?

Should I sacrifice better resolution and better static contrast in benq/dell and get Eizo anyway? Is it worth paying more? I don't need any gaming functions, just a good performance in photo processing, like mentioned above.

Greets!

#6900 All the monitors are in the same class, but I would probably prefer one of Eizo's monitors if the prices compare. They tend to pre-calibrate and adjust the monitors to higher standards than most, which also has a role to play when calibrating.

Have you considered the EV2436W? The flicker-free LED backlight is really great if you spend many hours in front of monitor.

#6901 Thank You for reply...

Unfortunatelly Eizo EV2436 is out of my price range.
But if You think FS2333 would be better in colour accuracy than 24 sized BenQ, I have one more option available - Nec EA234Wmi. The problem is that there are no online tests/reviews available of that monitor. I know that FS2333 and mentioned Nec use pwm technology, but i cant afford to spend more $.

There is also HP Z24i available (probably pwm free), but it's new on the market so no english reviews yet... But still its the same situation - probably Eizo/Nec are still better in colour accuracy than any of HPs monitors, am I wright?
