Need to get a new monitor and looking for IPS screens. Been looking around on here and at reviews and it seems a bunch of people on here like the Dell U2412M. The question-- is the HP ZR2440w better for the ~$100 more or is there another monitor that may be comparable in the price range?
Or ASUS PA248Q or NEC?
Also if anyone knows about the coatings- do they cause light reflections?
Thanks in advance.

I originally got a LG IPS235v and it was doing fine for the 190$ i spent for it.

I returned it 21ish days later and got the Dell U2412m and love it. The LG was fine but I read so many reviews that ding'd its little here and there's that i felt going with the Dell U2412m would be a safe bet so i took my LG back and picked up the Dell.

If I were on a total budget though i would of stayed with the LG. I just scared myself with seeing the repetitive recommendations of the Dell that i jumped LG ship.

Thanks for the reply. I agree that there is a ton of positive reviews about the U2412M.

Haven't looked at recent models, but I have an HP ZR24w and absolutely love it. The only thing that I would consider a slight "con" would be that it seems to take about five minutes to warm up to it's full brightness. Not a big deal to me, really, and I'm not sure if it's a common issue.

I'm currently sitting in front of a pair of 2412's, they are very nice and even compare well to my 2711 and 2410 I use at home.

Thanks and it seems that quite a few people like their 2412's and have quite high remarks on quality.

I almost went 2711 but the thought of having two 2412's was much dreamier than a single 2711. The wiff would not approve 2x 2711's if I tried.

+ i would actually have to purchase a video card capable of 10 bit color output. Meh. Too much work at that point! LoL!

I've got a 2711 and 2410 in front of me now, they work very well together.
Both are running from an 8bit workflow, I've seen a 2410 on a 10bit workflow and I'll be damned if I can see the difference.

The increased resolution over the 2412s is nice, and the tonal graduations are a little bit smoother compared to the 2412s. I've yet to see banding on the 2711 or 2410, but do occasionally catch it on the 2412s.

If your on a budget, or not doing anything high end then the 2412 is fantastic.
I use it for what I call mass production photography, lots of batch editing, high volume, every things exported to JPEG and small print sizes.

The 2711 and 2410 are used for my fine art and commercial work, jobs with much higher production standards.
