I need to replace my aging ultrasharp and have been looking at 24" monitors. I do not have a huge budget, so no high-end NECs are in my future. I also am not interested in 16:9 monitors as there just isn't enough vertical real estate. So, basically a 1920X1200 IPS display that is as low priced as possible.
Given my requirements, the only 2 I have found that fit the price range and specs are the HP ZR24W and the Dell U2410.
The Dell is more expensive and is wide gamut. I am hesitant to go wide gamut because the way I understand it, I would need an expensive colorimeter to calibrate it. This adds significant expense to an already more expensive monitor.
The HP is less expensive and normal gamut. I already have a Spyder 2 express that can calibrate it so that makes it an even better deal.
If I buy the HP, will I end up regretting the decision and wishing I had bought the Dell? Is the HP good enough for editing?
I am obviously leaning towards the HP, but if someone has a compelling argument for buying something else I am all ears.
