hey guys. i've been letting the final cut pro manual talk me into doing color correction on my mac, but i only have my apple display..

it seems that with most things there's a good introductory model thats cheap but begins to show nice performance. remember the pentax k1000 still camera? what is the pentax k1000 of broadcast monitors?

also, is ebay a good source for these things...assuming a healthy distrust for internet peddlers?

thanks guys,
jk :ph34r:

Sony production monitors are said to outperform others. You'll likely need at least a 14" model for editing. Ebay is fine for monitors, but like anything else there's a certain level of risk involved. Make sure to find out if the monitor has any burns on the screen or not. And don't buy a monitor that's 20 years old. BVM and PVM series monitors are good.
