While researching monitors to purchase to go along with my MBP, the one product that comes up time and time again is the Dell Ultrasharp line. Although a little pricier compared to its peers, it seemed like a fantastic value for your money, that is, until I read about the anti-glare coating. Reading stories of users who have experienced a "grainy" or "sparkly" effect, especially noticeable against white or light backgrounds, did not sound appealing to me at all, and it's something that would probably drive me insane. Before I go on, I want to state my needs in an external: -I do not create any media, although I do consume media regularly, so I appreciate IPS monitors and their depiction of colors. -I'm looking for a 21-22" in either 16:9, or a 23-24" in 16:10. I would prefer 16:10, but if the additional cost to acquire that is too high, I would be ok with 16:9. -I will be doing a lot of reading on this thing, so it must produce clear, sharp text. This is the single-most important thing I'm looking for in the monitor bar none. Aggressive AG coating like the Dells don't do that for me. -In terms of connectivity options...if it had HDMI, I would be happy, but, if it didn't, it's not a big deal. Ghosting would bother me though, so I would prefer if that were minimized. -I'm willing to spend between $200-$300. Before anyone says it, yes, I'm aware that the Dell U2410 is currently selling for $300, but again, that AG coating... -It would be nice if the stand were adjustable, and if the monitor had OSCs, but this isn't a make or break thing. -I'm aware of the Korean alternatives, but I'm not willing to take a "gamble" at this point in time. If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it!
