so i've been researching these lcd things for about a week or so, trying to decide if it's worth it to spend $600+ on a quality monitor or not to supplement my current laptop screen (15.4" widescreen, 1680x1050). i do a lot of photo manipulation, rendering, and prints so i'm placing a lot of value on color accuracy and resolution (1600x1200 or 1920x1200). unfortunately, this comes at the expense of response time. i do game, though not very much, usually just rts stuff, and of course i'll watch dvd's and other vids on it too. i've been conscious of response time but know very little about it in terms of application. i've read that s-ips>s-pva>>>>>tn in terms of panel type for color quality. since s-ips panels are either too expensive or come with a really awful response time, i'm looking at s-pva lcds. currently, the champ is NEC LCD2170NX-BK which is a non-widescreen 21.3". 1600x1200, s-pva, 8ms gtg, 300 cd/m^2, 1000:1 contrast, $590. i'm a fan of widescreens, but i haven't found anything except the much more expensive 24" wuxgas or apple cinema displays. lenovo is coming out with a 22" wuxga, 1920x1200, for $550 next month (thinkvision l220x) so i might just wait for that though there doesn't seem to be any concrete information as to the panel type (the 178deg viewing angle and low response time suggests s-pva). there seems to be quite a bit of interest in lcds in this forum, but the concern is usually about price or screen size, not color quality/resolution/response time. should i expect to spend $600+? cliffs: quality multipurpose lcd (20"-24", s-ips/s-pva, uxga/wuxga, <10ms) for less than $600?
