Looking for an IPS monitor

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My brother is looking to get a new monitor, mainly an IPS, however I've been out of the 'monitor buying' game for a couple years now. He does a lot of photo editing with photoshop, etc., so that would have to be taken into consideration. One monitor that I've been looking at is the ViewSonic VP2365wb. Seems like a great price for a very decent monitor.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-421-_-Product

As far as price range goes, I don't think he is willing to spend probably more than $350. As far as size, he'd like a 24".

As previously mentioned, he does heavy photo-editing and any other insight you all could provide would be appreciated.

Try to see if you can get the Dell U2311H, it uses the same panel as the VP2365wb, but is overall a better package (i.e. black level & contrast ratio) and calibrated out of the box better. It's also got overdrive (whereas the Viewsonic doesn't) which means is perfectly adequate to play games on for the vast majority of people - if your brother decides he wants to play a few games now and again.

Either that or the HP ZR24w if you can squeeze it into your budget. It's not quite a good as the U2311H, but is however 24" and 16:10 (1920x1200) which is much better productivity wise.

There's a bit of a comparison between the VP2365wb, U2311H and the ZR24w in this TFTCentral review, specifically in the head to head section.

The only other IPS you might want to look at is the Dell U2410, but I'm pretty sure that's out of your price range. The main benefit for this Dell is that it uses a wide gamut which may or may not be a needed feature depending on what kind of photo editing your brother does.
