I think the thing to remember here is that your monitors are a tool. So the question to ask yourself is, "Are these monitors going to help me make better mixes?"
If the answer is yes, and you're happy with the price / benefit equation after listening to them, then I'd stick with them and not get sucked into any 'what if?' rabbit-holes.

Pretty much what I was thinking, unless you are experienced enough to confidently assess the monitors, and have a well treated room, you may as well go with the flow if you like them. They are quality monitors capable of producing release quality mixes so, while you may find something that sounds different it seems unlikely you'll find something that results in better mixes. Keep them and learn to use them effectively.

Thanks for confirming what I've been thinking. I'll speak to my normal dealer, but I suspect I'll just go for these, as I don't think I'll find anything else which will be a better fit for my requirements. As you suggest, I've got loads to learn, and it'll take me ages before I'm making decent recordings, but I think these will help steer me in the right direction.
