    Which Monitor would look "Good" with the iMac 21.5 inch (2011)? I want it to look about the same height and screen size as the iMac. What are you guys using?

    Maybe another 21.5" display? Dell 2212M or LG IPS224V? A good 24" is said to be the ASUS PA246Q--- true 8-bit color.
    Here is a page where the guy maintains a list of all the IPS panels and gives his opinion. That tftcentral.co.uk has really good monitor reviews.

    One thing I just learned is that it is hard to get a truly quality 21.5" screen. I do not know about the 2011 iMac, but the 2012 iMac is IPS (good), but it is a 6-bit panel with dithering (AFRC I think is the acronym). The Dell U2212M is the same thing. I looks really good don't get me wrong, but I'm a purist. Not sure about the LG monitor.

    Thanks guys for the great responses so far!

    I'm going to be using it for school, like a word document one screen another word document on another, or I might have a web browser page on one screen, and a video on another.
