That is definitely an IPS. One difference between the Dell and NEC is that the NEC monitor has an ambient light sensor, however the response time is 14ms compared to the Dell's 8ms, and it is also missing a VGA connector.
One thing to keep in mind is that the Dell's do go on sale once in awhile for $240~, so if you can snag one for the price, i would definitely choose the Dell over the NEC and LG IPS236v
