I regret to inform you...that my old CRT monitor is dying. Pain in my ***... :) The question is - what kind of TFT should I choose? I'm not a millionaire, so I can't afford an EIZO or a highly qualified Samsung...maybe a second-hand ViewSonic or something...but what?

What do YOU use for stock photos' preparation? Please advise, if you can, it's important and urgent, I can't work... :)

Well I use Mac screen there really good. Its around 1200 USD. And I'm using good old Acer AL 1916W LCD its quite good using for almost 2 years Masha Allah no complaints and at a very good price 150 USD. I suggest Acer if you are budget constraint else go for Apple way.

They are still my favourits for graphics!
After if you want to invest (when you afford it of course :)) buy an LG TFT they are pretty good & have good angle view!

Hard Times are Good when we remember them as part of the past :)

About me

I've started photographing a few years ago with a compact cam. In 2008 november I decided to buy a DSLR cam, and I chose a Pentax k10d. Now I'm upgraded into a Pentax K-3 for more details. I rarely use hard Photoshop effects, I'd better see the real world in my photos. My main interests are travelling and towns - and nature, of course.
