I do not have a very discerning eye for photographs/pictures on a screen so an average quality "office grade" monitor would suffice I guess.
NO fancy addons - just need a long lasting, reliable monitor that can:
0. Have LED backlight (I read it has more life than anything else available right now)
1. Handle direct digital input (not VGA! DVI-D/I, HDMI etc OK)
2. Available from most B&M stores *or* have free return shipping if it turns out to be faulty (don't wanna pay $30+ to ship back a $200 monitor)
To give you an idea of what I like, here are two models that appealed to me:
I myself use samsung for all my primary displays. I have been using there LN46C650 for the past few years and never have i had a monitor with better picture, color, response, or quality. i use my computer for everything from gaming, to blueray, to photoshop, and maya. last i checked asus used samsing panels in there displays so id say its a safe bet for picture quality.
