Default what monitor used for inspiron 530S - 03-21-2011, 01:14 PM

I have a 530S and want to get a flat screen monitor for it. Can I just buy any monitor. I would like to get one no bigger than 21" that is decent for
processing my photo images, so I need one that has accurate color.
Any ideas will be appreciated. Freddy

Welcome to the forum, though I am wondering how you ended up here. This is not a generic Dell forum - we focus on the Mini and Streak products.

Assuming that what you have is an Inspiron 530S, you can use pretty much any LCD monitor sold today. I believe your model has only a VGA output so you'd want to make sure that the monitor you buy includes a VGA adapter or cable (most do, but not all.)

Advice on color accuracy would need to come from somewhere else, though if you're serious about this an investment in a monitor calibration device such as ColorMunki or Spyder would be in order.
