    Just wondering which monitors people are using.
    Thinking on getting an IPS type to stick on the laptop, so something about 24" or smaller would be ideal.

    Any ideas out there?

    It won't help you because it isn't made anymore - its a NEC P221W. When I replace it I'll probably look at Eizo, they seem to have grown their mid-price range.

    AOC 23" must be at least 5 years old.

    The Philips Brilliance 241B7QPJKEB IPS panel at around £200 currently gets good reviews in PC magazines for its 'impressive colour accuracy and contrast ratio' and 'superb value'. In the 27" area the AOCQ2778VQA at around a similar price also gets good reviews although not quite up to the Phillips.

    Cheers Velo.

    Have looked at that one - would like to see one in the flesh, but around here? No chance.

    Having said that, tempted to just order one.

    Having said that - a bloke in the club has just offered me one for free, the only thing is that I suspect it is a bit ancient, around 15-20 years or more.

    We shall see. Could get the Philips and give the older one to family or someone I suppose.

    If the reviews mean impressively high contrast this isn't necessarily good for editing, especially if going on to print. High contrast screens may not necessarily deal well with the mid-tones. The main problem with choosing monitors is that it is hard to find them demonstrated at all, let alone in suitable conditions for editing.
