    hey, i need another monitor for my office and need some help

    What I want in the monitor:

    size: 21.5-27 inch

    panel type: whatever looks good

    ergonomics: as long as the monitor is VESA compliant its okay

    What I dont want in the monitor:

    -noise if i lower the backlight
    -cracking plastic sound when the monitor heats up
    -bad colors and or washed out colors

    Ah well, that blows my recommendation out of the water. I haven't had any problems like that. Have you considered getting it replaced? They have a really good warranty.

    I've got two of them and no issues at all. Like mentioned above you can always send it back.

    that sounds like a good suggestion what i am talking about is random crack noises (sounds like plastic cracks or something) that happen every 5-10 minutes even if the monitor is asleep...so your monitor is silent all the time with no such cracks ever?

    Yep, no issues. I'm pretty picky too - my TC spinning drives me nuts. ;)

    Dell's Ultrasharp 2408 is regularly dipping under $400 these days, and also worth considering if you don't mind PVA instead of IPS. Just please don't buy a TN - it's a sure path to crappier color.
