I'm looking for some recommendations for a new monitor. As a photographer, it's important for me to have plenty of height for portrait. With that in mind I've had my hands on a couple of 24" 1920x1200 monitors. 1920x1080 isn't big enough.
The first one was a Samsung, a 450 I think. After a few months it developed a large bright spot and had to go back. I got a refund as they said that particular monitor had been discontinued. Shame - up to it failing it was quite good.
The second was a Dell U2412M which lasted two days. It has a horrible bright sheen to black areas away from direct line of sight - you can't look at the centre of screen then look at the corners, you have to move your head to the corner to see black as black. Completely useless for looking at photos. It's now in a box waiting to go back.
At this point I'm a bit nervous about commiting to another purchase. I don't want another piece of junk. If anyone has any recommendations for a suitable monitor I'd be grateful.
