 Hi all,. I am thinking about getting a monitor for editing my photos, i'd like to spend 500 at most. Any hint? Thanks!

I mostly agree with the article. Except I think a monitor beyond 27" with 16:9 (or 23-24" with 16:10) is too big for image editing. It's like sitting too close to a movie screen. I also would avoid a 27" monitor with just 1920x1080 resolution which is only adequate for a monitor not bigger than 24".

I also would go to http://www.tftcentral.co.uk (http://www.tftcentral.co.uk) to have a look at their test results about viewing angle and backlight leakage.

I use this one over 80 hours per week using windows 10.

Never a single issue plus have a spyder 5 for calibration
