Hi,

I have a Dell 2209 monitor that was recommended by FMer's 2-3 years ago. I have been very happy it with but I think it may be time for a new one. What would be the monitor to get today as far as bang for the buck and easily calibrated?

Thank you,

Jim

I would wait for the best budget 27" or larger 4K IPS my money could buy.

what price are you willing to pay?
If you are willing to pay a decent bit more you can make the huge leap to 4k (and internal calibration) or somewhat decent bit more to internal calibration. If you are looking for the same price monitor I don't know that they have really improved them much in the last couple years so it might just be paying money to get the same thing again.

Hi Guys,

I had an NEC before this monitor and could not get it calibrated properly and that was using their software. As for price, I do not mind paying $600 - $1,000 but it has to be able to be calibrated easily and consistently. I do not know what the problem was with the NEC, so I cannot answer any of those questions. As for 4K, I admittedly do not know enough about it at this point to make any conclusions. I will look into it however.

Thank you,

Jim

I just picked up a Dell U2412M for under $300. Specs are almost identical to my older HP ZR24W which was nearly 2x the price 4 years ago. The Dell is thinner and lighter.

+1 on the U2412M. Simular to the OP's 22" it is a no frills IPS monitor that gets the job done for a reasonable price, better resolution than the 22" also.

+1 for the ColorEdge CG276. Love mine.

A few months ago Calumet was doing great deals on them.

Hmm what NEC?
I found the PA trivial to calibrate with Spectraview II. Easiest, breeziest ever.

Anyway I just moved from a PA241W to a Dell UP2414Q UHD (4k-ish) monitor. Mind blowing. Calibrates well internally (although much more slowly than the NEC and it the profiling step is perhaps done a touch better with Agyll+DispCAL than with the Dell software).

skibum5,

I cannot remember which unit it was. It was the first year that the wide gamut units came out and I think it was a 24 inch, but am not positive. Thanks for the info on your new Dell.
