Cheap(ish) IPS Monitor (sub $300-350)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So, I've been thinking of making the move to IPS from TN. Funds are a little restricted, but I came across this:

ViewSonic VP2365WB 23-Inch $290 + free shipping

1920x1200
flexible mount (portrait / landscape)
USB hub,

[ame="http://www.amazon.com/ViewSonic-VP2365WB-23-Inch-IPS-Monitor/dp/B002R0JJYO/ref=pd_ybh_2?pf_rd_p=280800601&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_t=1501&pf_rd_i=ybh&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=1S82NS1MEMAZ7EP7B0GJ"]Amazon.com: ViewSonic VP2365WB 23-Inch IPS LCD Monitor: Computer & Accessories[/ame]

Anyone know of anything better for the cheap-skates who want something for photo work?

(also, please do not post a reply about a cheaper TN panel. Trust me, if it doesn't say IPS, it's not one)

U2311H is $10 less, and there have been reports on POTN saying that if you call up Dell directly they can give you the $230 price.

The dell U2311H for $230 would be great. I was hoping to find something on Amazon since I have $180 in credit there (like I said, I'm cheap), but this looks like a better deal. Thanks (both)

I have the u2511's bigger brother, and it's a blast to edit photos on. I especially like how the red looks on it. I don't think you could go wrong with the 2311 for photo editing.

U2410 Too epic.

Another vote for the Dell 2311 here. My one complaint is that it's a 16:9 panel not 16:10 but that's a really minor complaint.

16:9 is actually quite nice for photo editing. It depends on your application, but Bibble 5 scales quite nicely:

I paid 199.99 for new u2311h ship free and tax free from dell ebay. They had a sale while back. Worse experince I ever had with dell. Dell cant see orders place on dell-ebay. Well.. anyway. I got my new isp monitor and i am happy with it so far. I wish it have HDMI connection. thats all.
I dont see any color cast (as some reported). Ofcouse I did calibrated the monitor so it is all good.
