    Absolutely get the Ultrasharp. The P means Professional only to sell monitors. They are terrible. They gave me a 24" G (the LED version) at work and I gave it back. I kept my 5 year old 17" Ultrasharp.

    The Ultrasharp is quite good. I have two Ultrasharp 24's. An old one at home and finally a new one at work. They're great.

    P2411H comes with a TN panel and U2311H comes with IPS. Ultrasharp series is the way to go if you're getting Dell.

    Ultrasharp

    Contrast Ratio:
    1000 to 1 (typical), 10,000:1 (dynamic)
    Brightness:
    300 cd/m2
    Response Time:
    8ms (gray to gray)
    Viewing Angle
    (178° vertical / 178° horizontal)
    Color Gamut:
    82% (100% sRGB coverage)

    ----------------------------------

    Professional

    Contrast Ratio:
    1000 : 1 (typical), 2 million:1 (dynamic)
    Brightness:
    250 cd/m2
    Response Time:
    5 ms panel (Black to White)
    Max Viewing Angle (vertical/horizontal):
    160°(vertical) / 170°( horizontal)
    Color Support:
    Color Gamut (typical): 81% (CIE 1976)2
    Color Depth: 16.7 million colors

    I'd say you can't go wrong either way. I like the connectivity of the ultrasharp, but the reviews of the ultrasharp seem better. I would have to see them side-by-side to say for sure, but I would probably go with the ultrasharp.

    The P has a TN panel, horrible.

    I'm also thinking to buy Dell U2311H. I won't use it for prof. gaming, but sometimes I want to play something and don't want to have lag...

    Any good for that purpose?

    I'd recommend this one LG E2360V-PN. It looks really good, has brilliant colours, its pretty cheap (190 euros in germany). I have two of them connected to my mac pro, one on either side of a 30" Apple.

    There is more difference in quality than in the screen sizes. Get the U2311.

    I just got the U2311H about a week ago and I am so glad I did. It looks incredible. I got it for design work and photo editing. For gaming it looks nice but its not quite as fast and responsive as other lower end monitors. I would so far highly recommend it unless you're a hardcore gamer.

    I am also looking at the U2311H, I'm trying to find the best monitor to edit pictures right at the $300 range that includes 1080P at least and an HDMI input. My only thing is if I'm going to spend that much money I want to be able to game on it with my Xbox 360 and for Blu Ray Movies with my PS3. I've had and played on a 23" HP Monitor that had 6ms response and it was so bad I couldn't play on it.

    Did you even read the thread?

    Don't think my 2311H has a HDMI input, though.

    Ended up buying the P24. It arrived a few days ago.

    I have to say I was a little disappointed with the colours but the extra screen size and bigger pixel pitch makes text very easy to read.

    you got a 12:1 rating for the ultrascharp and still you got the other one...

    seems to me you already knew which one you wanted...
