I didn't realize how bad my old monitor was until I replaced it with this one. I wasn't sure if it would be a good investment or not but I sure don't regret this purchase.
I bought this monitor to edit my digital images. After having put off this purchase for too long I finally bit the bullet and I am so glad I did. For the price this monitor can't be beat. It comes with all the cables you need to jump right in. I would highly recommend buying the Spectraview II bundle if you don't already have a calibration device.
I am an amateur photographer who likes to do photo editing in Photoshop. I choose this monitor because of the positive reviews I read online. The monitor works great out of the box and is easy to calibrate with the NEC SVII-Pro-Kit. Image color and quality are excellent and far superior to the lower end monitor I was using. I print my images on a Cannon Pro 9000 Mark II printer. I have been very pleased with the color fidelity between the monitor and printer using Cannon paper printer profiles. I don't have a negative comment about the monitor. In summary, I was concerned about benefit vs. price since I don't make my living at photography but I have absolutely no regrets with my purchase.
