Ok hold on.
That monitor is the same as the "famous" hans-g 28 inch. It is a FANTASTIC monitor. I have used 3 (doing builds for various people). It's true, you get what you pay for. It's NOT an ips pannel, sure, if you spend 600 bucks you can get something better, but at its price, it's a STEAL. Honestly, that monitor would be a good buy at $375.
Buy it and be happy, it is THE monitor I recommend to people at the sub $300 price range.
And yes, all this is coming from the guy with more than 4k worth of monitors (3 30 inch ips panels). I know how to judge a monitor, that one really looks pretty damn good for a TN.

I really wouldn't get anything larger than a 24" at 1920x1200/1080. Once you get something bigger than that you should start looking into 2560x1440/1600.
I don't have any proof but I would assume they used a cheaper TN panel for that monitor. I could very well be wrong but at only $250 I doubt the manufacture would put anything really nice into it.
The pixel pitch (density) is just fine. No worries at all. It's still WAY denser than the 1080p tvs some users here have taken to using. And sure it's TN, but EVERYTHING under $400 is a TN, that's kind of a given. And it's really a pretty nice looking TN.
Seriously, I have used both the INC and Hans-G version of this monitor. It rocks, get it and be happy.
