    Hi. I'm looking for a non-glossy IPS display preferably with 1920x1200 resolution. My budget is around $500.

    Leading candidate is the Dell U2410 but the "Banding and Green/Pink Tint Issues" have kept me from purchasing it. Does this monitor, in it's latest revision, still suffer from these type of issues. Other 24" candidates are the HP LP2475w and HP ZR24w.

    Two 23" displays with lesser resolution get fairly good reviews overall. The Dell U2311H and NEC EA231WMI-BK.

    I need to purchase a new display as soon as possible and any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    I'm in the exact same situation! I too want an IPS with 1920 x 120 resolution. So far the best on (only one with 22"+) I've found for under £350 is the HP ZR24W...

    There are many displays on the market but unfortunately they don't meet the requirements... I'm searching online sites every day to see if they have anything new but ideally I need it by the end of next week!

    I see you mention the HP LP2475w. Have you seen the user reviews for this model on Newegg? They're about the highest for any monitor, 88% excellent, plus 7% good. Another good thing about this monitor is that it comes with a 3 year on-site warranty. If I was in the market for a 24" monitor, that's definitely the one I'd get. I might get it anyway. It accepts just about any input connection available. I just noticed that it's $560 at Newegg.

    I have a Dell U2410, it's a good deal for the money. I use Eizo monitors at work so I have been spoiled, but the color gamut of the Dell is great. My only two complaints are it takes a few minutes to warm up and the screen is not as even as my Eizos. Viewing a off white desktop there is a slight density difference on the left. But no problems with banding or green/pink color. I work in print production so I have access to pro quality calibration gear so that makes the Dell easy to setup. Once you throw I image on the screen its perfect.

    the HP zr24w looks good. only covers sRGB, but if your work doesn't cover anything much larger, there isn't much point to a wide-gamut...

    23" ACD's were selling for around $300-400 last time I check ebay.

    Thank you for the great feedback. I'm leaning toward getting the Dell U2410 but will keep the HP LP2475w in mind if I encounter any problems with the U2410.

    To be honest, the Samsung 27 inch unit is not bad at all, even in the 1080p format. I have had 2 Apple Cinema Displays with my current mini. I got the 27 inch unit and will not look back. For the price and value of the monitor, I am pleased to say, I now have two of them.

    I believe MacMall has a 24" HP IPS monitor with 1920x1200 resolution for $330.

    Which IPS Monitor did you go with? ?

    I am in the same situation now....my new Mac Pro is showing up on my doorstep on Friday and I need to "decide" on a monitor

    http://www.amazon.com/HP-ZR24w-24-i...ADUU/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1286940404&sr=8-5

    http://www.amazon.com/NEC-EA231WMi-...RVYK/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1286940404&sr=8-3

    Is there anything bad with this NEC??

    If I go with the NEC what cables and adapters do I need to hook it up to the mac pro? and what would I need to setup two of them?


    Thank you for your help
