New Monitor
Requirements
• IPS
• At Least 23"
• Preferred Minimum Resolution 1920x1200
• Budget Around $300 If possible
• I don't mind buying a refurb

HP ZR24w

After a ton of research I ended up getting the ACHIEVA Shimian QH270-Lite and I am VERY impressed. The screen is definitely on par with higher end monitors.

This is because they are the same LG screen & model as the 27" Apple Cinema 27. Ebay seller has a Zero dead pixel guarantee.
