A couple of years ago when I bought my computer, I bought the cheapest LCD monitor I could find. Now that I started doing photography and edit the photos, I have a feeling my monitor isn't up to par.

Anyone here have any recommendations? Looking at 20" or 22" and prefer a wide screen monitor.

HP's are supposed to be pretty good for photo editing for the price. Eizo or NEC if you want to spend some$ for the best. Get a spyder 2 to calibrate it with.

Every now and again, Dell will pop a killer deal on a monitor at http://slickdeals.net/

Those ultrasharps from Dell have gotten really good reviews. I don't know why, but I don't like DELL. They somehow convince everyone that Dell is the only computer to buy and charge a heck of a lot of money for them when you can by identical computers with the same internal parts for a fraction of the price.

But the monitors are suppose to be really good. I'm also looking at some of the viewsonic monitors too.

If you are on a budget, hit up Dell's Refurb website. I picked up 2 x 24" widescreens and saved $400-500...

Just a note: One monitor was perfect while the other one had a dead pixel (just lucky it was towards the edge.) Apparently they only swap out monitors if there's 5 or more dead pixels. :-/

They work fine for editing, but I wouldn't use them for any sort of color correction (at least for video).
