Best monitors for digital art?

I'm on the lookout for a mid or lower-priced monitor that has accurate colour reproduction and works well for digital drawing and painting. Any recommendations (or monitors that should be avoided)?

Depends on how much exactly you want to spend and what size you want. Anything with an IPS or PLS panel will be a bit pricey compared to the same sized Tn panel.

Any of these that fits what you want size and price wise would do [link]

Oh and btw, what monitor size/resolution your looking at?

I currently have a Dell Ultrasharp U2312hm, and I'm very satisfied with it so far. :)
Remember that it can also help to calibrate it correctly (even with the built in windows program).

Dell ultrasharps with the newfangled e-IPS are probably some of your best bets. They're around $400 these days. The cinema displays are nice but run ~$1k. Also, they don't make a whole lot of sense unless you own a MBP with thunderbolt and a magsafe charger.

Why a magsafe?

The cinema displays have magsafe chargers built in to work with MBPs :p

Interesting that they're less than the Dell ones. Apple has some really nice displays! Thanks for the rec.
