I'm wondering if it is worth purchasing a used high quality monitor to get me through the next 6-12 months as I start to establish my business rather than buying a new but sub-par monitor. What got me thinking about this was seeing an Eizo CG210 advertised for sale for $300. I know it is a fairly old monitor, but wonder if it was worth considering. Ideally I would like an NEC PA series 24 inch monitor, however I am working hard to keep costs down at the moment. Obviously if the business does well I will upgrade at some point, but I really can't afford to spend much money at this point in time.
I guess what I want to know is will an older monitor still work well and be able to display consistent and accurate colour, and also is it likely to be compatible with my current computer, a i7 Dell XPS, and Spyder 3 Pro for calibrating.
Any help much appreciated. Thanks
