Need some monitor recommendations for Work
So I'm using a 13" MPB Retina connected via HDMI to a Samsung SyncMaster S27B350
So right now I'm working very intensely with Excel and the resolution on this monitor is driving me crazy. It's becoming hard to read the text and it just plain sucks. Looking to spend maybe $400 or less, and doesnt have to be 27" but perhaps 23" or greater.
I was thinking about one of these.

Then a 27" with 2560 x 1440 pixel or a 23" with 1920 x 1080 pixel or a 24" with 1920 x 1200 pixel should work much better.
I myself have the U2412M and it is a more than okay display for my needs.

I bought one last week at BestBuy. For the price, I can't recommend it enough.
There's no HDMI or built in speakers, but the IPS panel is quite good.
Dell is discontinuing this model, so get it while you can.
If you need HDMI, don't spend extra for the S2340L.
Go to Monoprice and get a DVI->HDMI adapter or cable for $3.

If a monitor is giving you a headache it may be that it is the PWM (Pulse Width Modulated) backlighting.
I've just gone from the U2412M to the U2713H (non PWM) and could not be happier - my eyes are feeling the difference.

ps if you are working in wide spreadsheets then I may suggest to take a look at the U2913WM
