| p.1 #5 · Monitor with factory set color calibration |
Thanks to both of you for the feedback. Swoop, your comments support what I was thinking, so I won't pay extra for the "factory calibration" feature. Mike, I would love to get one of the excellent NEC monitors, but my budget won't stretch that far right now. So, I'm probably going to buy one of the mid-level IPS monitors from Dell or HP.
Make sure you get the correct probe to handle wide gamut if you go with those brands and get a wide gamut. And make sure the HP has even a half-way acceptable sRGB emulation mode (unless this will be 100% strictly for photos and you are willing to live without using IE, if you want to watch movies, tv, games and such then sRGB mode is pretty key), I don't think any of their older wide gamuts did although perhaps some new ones do.
I've been hearing good words about hte ASUS246, better words than about the Dells and HP.
So if oyu don't want to get NEC PA241 price the ASUS is one to look into for sure.
