I'm looking to spend up to $1500. Was hoping for two screens. But I may 
try to find one used Viewsonic VP2290B.

 > At the top of the range are the Apple screens...

I do not find the Apple's quality particulary acceptable. The screen 
door effect is visible and it bothers me.

I did see a Viewsonic VP2290B with great picture quality but that is out 
of range.

No way, bigger pixels than the Viewsonic .294mm versus .264mm.

I'm going to try the HP L2035 with .255 pixels and see if it bothers me.

I'm coming from the SGI with .230 pixels, and I can't see them, so I've 
got my fingers crossed. .264mm pixels are very visible to me, however. I 
can't imagine doing compositing on the Viewsonic, with .264mm, because I 
can see such a "stippled" effect on all the graphics.
