I feel one of the most important pieces of technology for someone working with graphics is a great monitor. Big sizes and high pixel counts are important. But they also usually come with fairly high prices.
The BenQ GW2765HT monitor delivers a 27 inch monitor with 2560×1440 pixels at a reasonable $365 (based on current Amazon pricing). Is it the highest quality monitor at this size and resolution? Of course not. But is a good quality for the price and will likely serve most users very well.
For those of you still working with a smaller, lower resolution monitor; you may want to give this serious consideration to upgrade your productivity.
