I have a Ezio CG19 that is harware calibratible and I'm more that pleased with it.
And I hear the NEC SpectraView series are quite nice as well(not as good as Eizo though)
I am interested why you think the NEC SpectraView is not as good as the Eizo ColorEdge series of monitors, mostly from the point of view that I am ready to step up to the next generation of monitors.
From my research I have identified two monitors that would be worth the upgrade, both are capable of aRGB colour space, geared towards calibrated work, 22 inches, and both around the same price (GBP3,000):
1...The first is the [a href=\"http://www.eizo.com/products/graphics/cg220/index.asp]Eizo ColourEdge CG220[/url]- NB the other ColorEdge monitors in the range do not cover the aRGB range of colours and the difference is quite substantial (there is a vRML application on the Eizo website for comparing gamut coverage - including the ability to upload ICC profiles to include in the comparison).
2...The NEC Spectraview Reference 21
has perhaps a slightly wider gamut coverage (if there is anything in it at all), but the advantage appears to be the LED backlight tunable over a range of colour temperatures compared with the Eizo. Again, the other NEC monitors in the range do not have the same colour gamut as the range topper.
So, anyone got any experience of these two particular monitors? Perhaps Michael could do a review and give us a hands on comparison of current state of the art monitors - either one would certainly look rather nice next to his D50 proofing lamp.
As a final note, GBP3,000 for a monitor may sound a lot of money but I take the view that if you have spent GBP10K+ on camera and lenses then it is not a magnitude of spend out of order, particularly as I will probably spend more time looking at the screen than through the viewfinder.
