Well, I'm looking for a 19" screen that doesn't break the bank. My options seem to be:

With DDC hardware calbration:
- NEC Spectraview 1980 at 645
- LaCie 319 623

Without DDC hardware calibration:
- NEC 1990SXi at 445
- Eizo S1910 at 421

With the DCC monitors I will also need to by a Monaco Optix XR at 120, as they are not compatible with my Spyder. I may get one anyway as it seems the Spyder is pretty crummy in comparison.

At the moment I'm leaning towards the NEC 1990Sxi...I'm not sure if the DCC calibration of the Spectraview/319 is worth the cost.

You could also check out the NEC 1980Fxi. In what I've read it sounds like a monitor similar to the 1980sxi in quality, but probably without DDC. It was created for the financial sector, but it seems to employ the same kind of hardware as the 1980sxi and at a cheaper price. Worth a look if you can compare them.

FWIW, it looks like the tryout of ColorEyes i downloaded will do DDC on my 1990sxi. The question now is where to download the manual, since they don't seem to think it could be of use...
