what's the best second monitor for iMac?
« on: April 09, 2008, 10:13:21 PM »

Lightroom 2.0 has a second monitor option, so I'm thinking of getting one. What the specs to look for?

The perfect reply. Thank you!
One other question ... Where does Apple's choices fit into this list?

Czornyj,
How about the NEC 20.1" WGMX2?

Nice, but nothing spectacular. I'd rather take Eizo S2031W - it has matte screen and internal 10 bit LUT

Apple's monitors are essentially junk.  Long ago they used trinitron tubes, but their LCDs are all cheap junk.

There are a few CRT makers still out there, though, and if you can find a good model and get it calibrated, it'll do a fantastic job.(not a fan of LCDs myself)
