Title says it all. Prefer HDMI ports, wide viewing angles, and at least 1920x1080. Budget ideally around 500, willing to go up to 750....minimum 21 inches, ideal 24, up to 27. Ideally no speakers attached since it's dual monitor and i hate the sound quality.

I do like this BenQ but no HDMI.
Doesn't have to be on sale though....just want something that'll make the photos look great/comfortable to look at

If you are doing photo editing for a photography business or something similar on these monitors, I would seriously reconsider. If color accuracy is important to you, you are going to pay alot for your monitor. We have a 24" NEC that we dropped $1200 on in order to get the color accuracy we need...and that was cheaper compared to most other flat panel photo editing monitors...

Do not look at most asus monitors for photo editing. Most are TN and therefore suck for color accuracy, just like the majority of monitors out there.

Look at IPS panels like the dell ultrasharp series (aside from two older VA models). They provide superior color accuracy even when uncalibrated, though I do suggest calibration anyway.

Better manufacturers for displays are out there for photo editing purposes, but those are generally expensive. Among them the mentioned NEC for example.

Also I'd suggest you get one good monitor with the budget you have and then buy some crappy monitor on the side for palettes and such.

Dual monitors of equal caliber, you don't need.

The NEC is a TN panel...

The Viewsonic is probably a TN panel, judging from the viewing angles. Either way, as a 6-bit + FRC panel it's not suitable for professional photo editing.

LG claims the E2370V-BF is an S-IPS panel. If true, that would make it the best of the bunch, but I can barely find any information on this monitor.

The Dell UltraSharp U2311H is a 6 bit + FRC panel.

Thanks, will rep when they allow for me to again (apparently you can give too much in a 24 hr period!)...
any recommendations in that price range? 250-300

I got the LG IPS23 1900x1024 , very nice, and i am mostly impressed with IPS angle viewability. price was right too. Had the best color out of EVERY Led monitor in the whole store. but still the old cold cathode monitors had more "colors" because of the backlight. But the selection of old Cold cathodes was terrible.

Minor cons:
Nothing being perfect, it has a bit of that X darkness comming out of the corners at severe angles (angles non-ips wont do at all) . It is LED, and although the Red on IPS is the best Red , it is not at all the same as a cold cathode and certannly not like a CRT. So minor, but there.

Structure:
It was cool, and uses way less power, had a good "base". I couldnt believe the cruddy bases put on most of the monitors in there, a good cough and they would fall over :) many of the bases were already broken. It does the Profile rotation stuff, and the base allows for height adjustments.

Goofey stuff:
Any of that Auto contrast, auto brightness junk that has been seen in other monitors, can apparently be turned off, because it has not gone goofy on me since adjusting it the way i want. In monitor menu controls still not really intuitive, but it was a big improvement over some other controls i have used.
It did not have an Auto backlight thing, for adjusting to room conditions. Fine with me.

it was cheap, whats cheap, err, i paid some $700+ years ago for my dell so cheap is relative, i think the lg was less than $250usd after taxes.

These Newer non-Ips LCD pannels that are LED light that are cheap, every one of them in the store had terrible reds , and horrible colors comparably , If i was given one I would sell it. For gaming, i would not care at all, but for working specifically with photo and video they would drive me crasy.
But remember that I have seen, and still have a CRT, so I am still ticked off that the NEW stuff , the better stuff , went backwards a bit in color in general, to get where they are.
