    The Dell SP2309W 23" Flat Panel Widescreen Monitor with WebCam is only $300, seems to good to be true. Is it a good monitor, in the same league as the HP LP2475w or the Apple 24" LED display?

    I can definitely live with the 23" and can't believe it's only $300.

    If the Dell SP2309W is TN as I believe it is so, it is no where near as good as that HP.

    Never figured monitors could be so complicated. :) H-IPS versus S-IPS, and now there's e-IPS. TN is good for quick response, but the IPSs are better at colors and viewing angles.

    But, what's the difference between all the different versions of IPSs?

    And I believe all these different versions are underneath TFT (Thin film transistors).

    Looking to buy a new monitor

    Sorry for bumping an old post. But I am greatly considering buying this monitor. And I find the URL (to an even older thread) that you linked very very helpful. Especially the calibration info, which, if I do end up buying the monitor, I will try it and hopefully it will work.

    I'm replying only so I don't have to dig my way to this thread again. :)
