Greetings, can the team suggest a decent monitor/display for fcp HD video editing, some word processing and photoshop. I don' play video games. I was looking at the apple cinema display since i use a MbPro 2.66, core i7 8gig ram. I was wondering if you knew of or could recommend any decent 27 inch monitors under 1000.00? I use a LAcie 324 at home and need more architecture for a doc i am editing at school. Unfortunately I am hemmed in by a very limited budget. I work in very verité cinema, no special effects.

many thanks

1) then why not post in the FCP forum
2) what the hell is Verite Cinema
3) start playing video games - what kind of kid are you ?
4) this is the monitor you want -

$159 - and yes, it's a 1080p 24" LCD monitor. Is that cheap enough for you ? (because you have under $1000 available).

and if you INSIST on a 27" for Verite Cinema
$329 - just for you.

my advice to you is to start playing video games, and learn some special effects.

You have just been "Zelinized," Eric. It is considered a badge of honor by many in the COW -- though it is feared by others.

Here is a thread where some of our members discuss the process.

I am 5o years old... been around academics, technocrats, artists, writers, and even worked as a fishing guide from Mexico to Alaska,,, Zelenized or Hyderized, it's all good... doesn't change my fiscal constraints... I will work in the lab in my department on the two 30 inch cinema displays, and tough it out on my home kit -- my mbp with a lacie 324, and an HP zx24 something something... ( until i can afford the real toys)... love the COW.. i recommend to ALL my students and colleagues.
