I advise you to look at. For a long time I was professionally engaged in FOTODELO (photo lab: setup, maintenance, printing).
In August, choosing a budget monitor for home and pleasure (pictures, texts, movies, photoshop). The requirements were simple: decent color reproduction, decent viewing angles, FullHD. Picked meticulously, I stopped it.
Dignity (read my review on I-market):
Matrix e-IPS, FullHD (pure bright colors, the real viewing angles no image distortion: ~100 degrees horizontal to 90 degrees. vertical).
— Not a bad factory calibration.
— ViewSonic is positioning the monitor as a professional, it gives us a 3 year warranty, which is distributed on the failed pixels (Yes it is, if the point of burn out, it is a warranty case!) + good build quality.
— had awesome high stand.
— The led on the front panel close up from black electrical tape.
— My copy is a little buzzing on the brightness to 94%.
— A noticeable gradient (to yellow) on a grey is still there. But it's there (and more noticeable) to the more expensive promodeler
— At large angles (~ >100 degree) black silver, violett, malinovic, respectively, decreases the contrast a little and leave the color (the greater the angle, the stronger the effects). Knew about it all.
Chose from what was on sale:
Dell 2209WA (it's a joint, not a monitor... lot of marriage)
NEC EA231WMi (functional... mean menus)
DELL U2311H and DELL U2211H (brighter, more contrast, functional settings, BUT!... read below..)
Samsung F2380 (brake, a noticeable shift in color when fidgeting on the chair, although black — Yes, black and details are not lost)
In addition, the above mentioned eIPS monitors on matrix large unevenness of illumination, IMHO less parts in black... probably because of the greater contrast.
Given the above, the natural features of eIPS and the warranty on the matrix, I took the viewsonic. Still pleased and would recommend as a budget workhorse.
Hope that saved you some time.
