Now thinking HP ZR24w, is the added 2" worth the extra 120 bucks?

Not just 2", but 1600x1200 vs 1600x1080 -- more vertical pixels. I usually find myself cramped vertically more often than horizontally. YMMV.

The LG, Asus and HP ZR22w have panels that use 6-bit colour depth with A-FRC to produce 16.7m colours. On the whole this is not a problem, and you wouldn't notice it in most cases but it can cause banding, which is not what you want when editing images, so it's something to look out for.

The HP ZR24w is a true 8-bit monitor which is preferable for colour critical work, so in itself yes, it would be worth the extra money. However, the ZR24w seems to have a few problems of its own. tftcentral reported poor black depths & contrast ratio, and Prad reported a minimum luminance level of 147 cd/m2 which is way too high.

So, based on the reviews the HP ZR22w might be the best bang for the buck.

You mean 1900x1200 vs 1900x1080 of course.
I agree, it is nice to have more pixels vertically. It's what I wanted when I was shopping for a new monitor but I ended up with a 16:9 monitor and couldn't be happier. :)

Subscribing. I'm also curious about this because I'm going to need a couple monitors soon. I want a dual monitor setup, somewhere in the range of $500 for both and I'd love to buy IPS monitors if possible

I had researched the LG over the summer and it seemed to be pretty good for the price. It routinely goes on sale for $199 at Best Buy (assuming I'm thinking of the same monitor, pretty sure I am).

Yes, great price right now.
I researched for about 6 months... And finally went for this. I'm very happy. I'd like to keep this thread going to share some first impressions and tips. For starters (rube question here) How Do I get the image to be vertical on the vertical screen?
Have fun opening that box.

Great. Thanks. No shortcut, I am presuming. Just rejigger the display every time you're working on a vert?
Terrific monitor for my needs. I thought of the PA 241 but price and the complexities of aRGB...

Whoops. I'm missing something. When I go vert my mouse starts running me on such an incredible chase around the screen that I can't reach confirm in time to confirm! Is there any easier way?
