    I currently have a single Dell 2209WA monitor attached to my Mini at home, and I love it. I was looking at adding a second 2209wa when I came across the U2211H. It seems to be very similar to the 2209, since it is an IPS panel with height adjustment, USB ports, etc. The U2211 does have a better resolution (1920x1080 vs 1680x1050) but the 2209 has a higher brightness. The U2211 is also cheaper. Does anyone have experience with this monitor?

    Here is what you have going with the UltraSharp Line: Dead Pixel Warranty and Advanced Replacement.

    So you can't go wrong with either and for the added resolution, I would go with the U2211H. The 1680x1050 on the 2209WA just isn't enough in my book...

    Yeah, that warranty was the main reason I bought the 2209 in the first place. Plus, it was a fairly cheap IPS panel. And they are adjustable in every direction. I don't know why height adjustable monitors are so hard to find.
