Hi everyone,
going a little bonkers here. finally did it, got a mac pro and final cut studio 2 yay!
now what I've spent the most time in trying to figure out, it's crazy-- is what brand of monitor/display to get for video editing? I have a 17" westinghouse and wanted my main screen to be 22". Also wanted to spend under $400. But I can't find real opinions and image quality ratings from people who use it for video.
NEC? Samsung? Dell? HP?
(by the way I thought I'd settled on a Dell but they are out of stock everywhere until August and I don't want to wait that long).

also what resolution and contrast ratio are you using?

Please help I'm going bananas!!
thanks in advance for your advice
