Yeah, a little too good! For that price, it's probably just your typical TN panel.

IPS+CCFL is way better than TN+LED in terms of IQ
They should make more affordable IPS panels instead of TN+LED stuff :rolleyes:

Pretty sweet display. Although I would enjoy a much larger resolution.

Honestly I'd like to see new panels with smaller pixels. Perhaps a 24" 2560x1600 / 2560x1440. For a long time I was using a 17" 4:3 Trinitron monitor at 1600x1200, I miss the pixel size :(

I want one of those newer cheap IPS panels with the decent response times. Preferably 21in @ 1920x1080 for $300, maybe $350 with LED backlight. That'd be just about perfect. I thought I'd want a higher res but honestly it can be an eyestrain sometimes reading at 1080p, plus a ton of online pictures will just look too small.

you think led is a worst than ccfl? at least with led we can have brighter and more vivid colors.
and when is well made there is no bleeding or at least less, like we see in ccfl.

I think my next monitor will be a DELL u211h e-ips full hd, very affordable and nice looking. i personally like smaller monitors (22'') with a dense pixel count so the image looks sharper and i can save some performance by not enabling the anti-aliasing.

1. Yes, LED can have a higher lumens/watt ratio than CCFL. However, there is no law that says they must consume the same amount of power.

2. White LEDs produce worse "white light" than most decent CCFLs due to inferior phosphor(hint: they aren't actually white). White LEDs also cannot match W-CCFL, though wide-gamut monitors are not relevant until 10-bit or higher input/output goes mainstream. Only the very expensive RGB LED matrix is truly better than CCFL/W-CCFL.

3. Back-light bleeding has nothing to do with the type of back-lighting.

I know LED light doesn't create as full range colour as a CFL backlight, but I don't really care and I do 3D animation and graphic design.

For me its more about the amount of heat being put out!! I have 3 monitors (2 22inch Dell LED monitors and a 24inch IPS with CFL backlight). The heat output by the 24 inch monitor is insane!! It's like sitting in front of a fire place. The 2 22inch monitors are cool to the touch and I actually do like their white colour more than the 24inchs.

If I ever found a monitor with these specs I'd buy it instantly and have it shipped from where ever!!! But it would have to be in the $1100 range

24inch 1920x1200 LED backlit 24-bit IPS panel.

I am getting sick and tired of all these el-cheapo 1920x1080 TN monitors.

You know thats the only monitor that fits those specs. I've been looking for months to replace my last CFL monitor. But for some strange reason no manufacturer out there besides Apple wants to (or can) make a similar specs model.

I'd totally buy a Cinema Display if it wasn't for
1. has only 1 display port connection
2. very glossy finish
3. no way to calibrate the colours on it without a mac.

Actually that raises a whole question about the LED colour accuracy. If its good enough for mac people to use in print media, video production, new media and web-site creation (ie. Graphic professionals) then why is LED colour accuracy not accepted when it comes to doing the same things on a PC? Almost every mac person I know owns a cinema display and they're all graphic designers of one form or another and they love their LED cinema displays.

3 of these vertically side-by-side would be perfect for Eyefinity.

Yeah, I'm waiting for a 27 or 28 incher myself wih 1080p resolution. And NO, the dottpitch is not big for that dimension.
