Default HP ZR24w or Dell UltraSharp U2410 24

I'm looking for a monitor. Mainly browsing and photo editing.
Most of my editing is via lightroom such as adjust brightness & crops. Doesn't do much color adjustments.

I saw a deal on the Dell for $449.00
I found the HP at Amazon for $410.22

I've heard tint & dithering issue on the Dell.
Does the HP have any major issue?

Which one would you get if you were me.

That's a great price on the Dell. I'd jump on it.

The U2410 is a wide gamut display with a 12bit internal LUT. HP is 8bit and normal gamut.

I know the Dell looks very good on paper but people had been complaining...
I'm not sure if it's still a problem.

I'm not sure if there ever was a problem, but there's only one way to find out.

What are your options? Buy a lower performing monitor for the same money? Buy a smaller, lower performing monitor for half the price? Buy a pro quality monitor for twice the price?

I may be able to get a used Dell UltraSharp 2707WFP 27-inch Wide-Screen for $400.
It's almost 3 years old. I do worry about it's toward the end of it's life.
Is this a good deal?

With LCDs... nope. And it's not even an IPS paneled display.

I was told it's an IPS display. I can't find any panel info in that linked document.
What panel is it?

I just found out the Dell UltraSharp 2707WFP is a PVA.

If you can get that monitor for less than $200, it would be a fair deal. If the sellers are local, don't be afraid of insulting them with a low-ball cash offer.

My Dell 2001fp which is an IPS panel monitor I paid $600 for stopped working properly just about a month after the three year warantee expired. Now only 1/2 to 3/4 of the screen is working.

I did put a lot of use on it in that time, maybe 10 hours/day or more.

I've had the Dell U2410 for about 3 weeks now and can't say I can find anything wrong with it. I'm running this along with a Samsung SynchMaster 2243 and a Wacom Cintiq. The Dell is so much better than the Samsung, imo.

LCD backlights start dying from day one. 3 years of constant use is a good lifetime for your monitor. Now is a good opportunity to step up to the next level, like an NEC PA241.
