okay, deal on the lacie.<br><br><a href="http://products.smalldog.com/product/39231">Lacie Electron blue II 19" here</a>.<br><br>These monitors must be pretty good since they cost an arm and a leg. i can't afford them new, but the refurbished ones are reasonable ($350 - $600). any opinion of refurbished monitors? what does it mean exactly (i realize it means used, but...is it a risky scheme)?<br><br>also, i don't do print work...i have heard that monitors are more important in print work because of the color separations and matching, etc. on-screen work is a bit less technical - or a little more wsyiwyg. i am not really a graphics person either...i actually hire the help, but i like to personally have the equipment and pretend -- ergo -- take what the hired help does for me professionally and apply it to my personal website and home movies, etc.<br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
