Sounds like you need a U2711.

Higher resolution, larger and better panel. I don't think he's trolling.
He was trolling. Did you even read his comment? His reason was that U2311H was "too small" compared to the U2410. The resolution difference is academic at best. Going from 1080 to 1200 vertical resolution will mean some more lines of resolution; nothing dramatic. The fact that the U2311H can be rotated completely negates that argument, however. If you want higher horizontal resolution, you can have it. As far as it being a "better panel", read this review, which has a comparison of both, and tell me again that the U2410 is clearly better. It's not. The U2311H is better in some things; the U2410 in others.

No point in getting the U2410, really.

Do u even know what u talking about? Please don't call me trolling if u don't have ideas what u talking about please. The U2410 is stunning in new Rev and it's better than the U2311 in every way. Yes $150 is worth it fyi.

To OP: If budget is your problem then get the U2311, u will still be happy with it. I was just suggesting from my point of view, i've used 23",24" ,25", n 27" and i think 24" n 25" are 2 best size honestly. 23" is too small (Only 1" different but the feel is very different), 27" is a bit too big for me.

Of course I read his comment. He based it on personal experience, which I will not hold against someone.

Thanks for the link man! I appreciate feedback +rep.

The personal point of view is much appreciated, but budget takes priority. I appreciate any input.

I agree with OCnewb. U2410 is nice step up over the U2311. However, since your on a budget and you are upgrading from smaller monitors, go with the 23".
Since I'm used to a 24" 16:10, I would really notice the size reduction.

Depends on what you are doing though. The U2410 is an upgrade in most cases, but for most, it's not worth the price.

The only concern I really have is with gaming. Since it's an IPS panel I should see very minor delays compared to a TN panel, I play a lot of shooters so this may be a slight issue.

Does anyone know the cheapest place to get them or should I just buy direct from dell?

Yes, it's better in every way, sure... no. The panel on the U2311H is better in some things; the one on the U2410 in others. Only real difference is 16:10 aspect ratio and 1" extra screen real estate, both of which are negated if you pivot. Sorry, but I don't think that's enough to warrant the extra cost if you actually care about money.
