    Need to find 2 monitors for work at around $200 each
    From what I can tell, I dont think I will benefit from IPS since I dont do any work that really involves needing super accurate colors. Therefore, what are the best dual monitors I should get for around $200/monitor?

    I hear a lot of good feedback about the dell ultrasharp series on this site, is this a good fit?

    or here is an IPS in 23":

    or since I have a microcenter a mile from the house:

    thanks for any advice in advance!

    Honestly, go buy the one you want from somewhere local, take it home and try it out. So much about customer satisfaction it displays is personal preference.

    You can measure colour accuracy, brightness, evenness, etc, but if you get it home and hate the bezel, or the glossiness/anti-glare texture, or you prefer warmer or cooler colours, then you won't be happy no matter what the reviews say.

    If you like it, return it to the store and order two online.


    To answer your request for reviews, I have 2 Dell UltraSharps and they're perfect. I do have the 27" though, and UltraSharp has a broad range of quality from 27" down to the cheap 21".

    That's a pretty selfish thing to do... there won't BE any local stores if people keep pulling moves like that. I don't care if you want to just buy two well-reviewed monitors online, but to buy it locally as a free trial is pretty low.
