  1. Well our shops second Envision Professional Series monitor has started to die. Its taking longer and longer to bring out of sleep mode, and if it follows the pattern of the first one in about 3 weeks it wont turn on at all :(.
    So before I am at the mercy of the box stores in town I thought I would start shopping for a good monitor.
    I need to keep it under $400.

    The monitor will be mostly used for design work on signs and posters. Larger stuff most of the time. I have never shopped for a monitor for graphic design before, only for gaming so I'm not quite sure what to look for.

    Any suggestions?

    What are the requirements for your work?
    • Physical Size?
    • Screen Resolution?
    • Refresh Frequency?

    With your requirements I think a 27in IPS 2560x1440 monitor would be good.

    Do you prefer glossy or matte monitors? It will probably depend on how your workplace is lit.

    I saw a deal a few days back for a Dell Ultra Sharp for real cheap (forgot the size though)
    I agree with slh28
