    Hi Gary -

    I got a new monitor last year, and opted for an HP 24yh. I like it quite a bit for photography work, as it's an IPS display. When I was researching monitors before my purchase I was not aware of the different panel types, and reading about them everyone seemed to agree that IPS is the way to go for color fidelity and greatest viewing angle. I certainly noticed a difference when I set mine up next to my old monitor.

    I don't know what other brands are out there offhand, but I can tell you I saw a lot of YouTube videos on the subject of "Best Monitor". You might want to cruise around there and see what the current crop of reviews have to say about units in your price range.

    Good hunting!

    Quite a while ago @Moab Man answered a question about what to look for in a new monitor with this:

    Here is an article with tons of info, and at the bottom is a list of various monitors in different price ranges you might consider.

    With whatever selection you make, I strongly suggest and IPS monitor. They are made so that from most viewing angles the colors will not shift.

    Back at that time I asked him for more detailed info, and this other thread is what he put together. It contains a lot of excellent advice. Like Dangerspouse mentioned, an IPS monitor will be very helpful. If you adjust the monitor's angle to view your screen, it won't alter the contrast like happens with some other monitors.
