I’m looking to buy a new flat panel monitor for editing using Elements. I’m an above average amateur but not a dedicated full Photoshop user. I’ve heard well of the Sony SDM-HX95 19 inch. Good? Or something better? I’m in the UK and do not want to spend more than £300 tops.

im considering the amsung SyncMaster 931C (Black) 19" TFT-LCD this has a contrast ratio of 2000-1 and refresh of 2 milliseconds.

in canada the price is 299 canadian dollars.

unfortunately the way the shops are here you can’t really try these things out before you buy so its reading specs and hoping for the best.

Thanks for all your views so far. By the way, should I be looking at a wide screen [often 20"] or the conventional shape? Does a wide screen ‘distort’ [i.e. stretch sideways] one’s images?

No. Not if you run them at their native resolution (The only usuable option on an LCD anyway).
