any budget external monitors? or just TV's.

I'm having a hard time getting colors the way I want them on my lcd computer monitor. I use Vegas and am thinking of investing in an external monitor. I don't have a lot of money to spend. I'd say about $350 tops. I saw a couple in that range at BH.

I'm referring to the two toshibas there only difference I see is size. Is 13" enough you think?

I'm guessing something like this would be better than a normal tv.

I plan to use this with Vegas's preview to external monitor feature.

Anything else in the price range I should consider?

On a side note...anyone seen any deals on LCD computer monitors? I'm looking for a second for a dual monitor setup.

I use a color TV. I figure this is what my customers will be using.

on regular tv's don't the color values tend to drift so you can't really be sure that things are calibrated correctly.

I figured that at least these were seemingly made for this purpose. They are cheap so they probably aren't rock solid but my thinking is that they would be more reliable than a tv at bestbuy or something. Is this the case? or at this price range would you might as well go with a color tv.
