Monitor advice

Hi All

I'm currently using a DELL 24" LCD which has a wide colour gamut. I've calibrated it as best I can to 'throttle back' the colour space to something approximating REC 709 but it's obviously way off being ideal so I'm now in the market for a new production monitor. I'm not looking for the last word in colour accuracy but want something that's going to give me a much better REC 709 colour space than I have now. Any recommendations? - I'm prepared to pay up to around £3,000 ($5,000).

HD-SDI input direct from my Kona 3 would be preferable to messing around with a Blackmagic Decklink...

Thanks

Thanks, the LM-2140W was on my short list and looks like the best bang for buck.

We have 6 FSI's here, definitely the best bang for the buck and awesome service after the sale.

Thanks Walter

Looks like FSI is my best option - wish they had a dealer in the UK though...

They don't have any dealers, they sell direct. That's how they hold the line on prices. They have support in the UK, just contact them.
