Interestingly, out of 6 different monitors I tried, the worst delta Es reported by Color Eyes came from a 3 year old Apple Cinema 2 monitor. The best were on a cheap HP monitor. But after calibration and profiling, they are all very usable.

Don't put a lot of faith into such dE reports, there are a number of reasons it's just a feel good option. IF the dE values were really large, you'd see this on-screen anyway.

I'm sure you're right. I will say though that just eyeballing that Cinema, I could tell it was pretty wonky. Anything with subtle middle grey tones looked awful. After calibration, it looks pretty good.

I have one of those Dell Ultrasharps on another system, and prints match that thing terrifically well now, which is really all that matters to me.

Of course, I want an Eizo, but that will have to wait until I've sold quite a few more prints.
