    Dell U2412M. It's no Thunderbolt Display, but the quality and color reproduction is damn good, and you can get the things for less than $300 all day. I don't have any experience with it, but there's a newer version that's not a whole lot more.

    I do like the Thunderbolt Display, but I have a hard time spending $1,000 on a monitor that's using aging technology, no matter how good the color accuracy or whatever is. My personal preference is to go with a cheap monitor and use my MBP to gut-check anything suspect.
