    Dell UltraSharp 23", 24" or HP LP series or ZR series 24"

    U2410, U2311H, LP2475W, and ZR24W

    all use IPS panels, but the U2410 and LP2475W are H-IPS, the U2311H is e-IPS and the ZR24W is S-IPS

    there are some goods deals right now on the Dells
    U2410 $431

    too bad that Samsung does not use a better LCD panel with the LED backlit.

    hey i know this is a bit old but just so people know the Dell Sp2309w is on sale again down to $209.30, thats 30 cents more than the refurb price!

    You need a coupon code to get it down from the $229 it costs with the dell "sale" that is normal. Just google search and you'll find it, if not then go to dell deals, then electronics then the one of the three banners is the 30% big monitors coupon... it works for the sx2210 as well so take your pick.

    I think the sx2210 gets down to 195 or so.

    I picked up a sp2309w because its only 15 more for a bigger screen better stand webcam and higher resolution.

    How do you find it for photo editing.?
    I saw on the dell website that you can wall mount it but how, do you have to buy an addition Vesa "mount fitter"?

    Thanks, Also do you have the sound bar for it?

    I don't use it for photo editing, but I to my naked eyes it has excellent viewing angles, and what appears to be accurate color. It has 82% gamut though, which is good but not as good as the U2410 which is better suited for professionals. It has a VESA mount so I don't think you need any sort of filter or adapter. I'm using a set of cheap Creative speakers as the soundbar did not get appear to be favorably received. You might find this to be of interest: http://www.flatpanelshd.com/review.php?subaction=showfull&id=1275291737 Dell's website says it has 82% gamut so I think the 72% that's listed there is a typo.
