    I just bought a Samsung C300 Series S22C300H 21.5-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor. I am a web developer who works with Photoshop but also watches a lot of Netflix and likes to play games. This will accompany my 13 inch retina macbook pro. Did I make a good buy or should I have gone with an IPS?

    It is an average monitor with average technical specs, and according to the reviews, most users seem to quite like it, except the one getting an HP instead.

    I have the two Dell U2412M displays, and though they did cost a bit more, they are quite excellent for their price and what I was looking for.
    Dell also has 1080p iPS displays in 23" for around 150 to 180 €, if you really want to go iPS.

    Thanks for your reply. I spent some time researching but got a bit overwhelmed so I went with this. It's my first time buying a monitor so not sure if it's a good buy or not :confused:

    Next time you should probably ask/research before you buy.....

    I can always return it if I don't like it.

    Any other monitors you could suggest in case?

    Not in that price range. IPS would give you less colour shift at different viewing angles, not a great deal more. Some of the Dell monitors get good write ups. Either that or have you thought about second hand?

    That monitor's pretty dirty cheap. Why don't you give it a try, see if it suits your needs?

    Note that simsaladimbamba posted the prices in euros, not dollars. Jus' sayin'.
