Don't go for the Asus. It's grossly overpriced. Plus, to me, it looks ugly. After the U2410 is calibrated, it'll look better than the HP even when that's calibrated.

Thanks for the reply. Could you elaborate why you would have gone with the U2410? I've been reading a lot of threads on Hardforums and everyone keeps on complaining about the U2410's tinting issue. Can you please afirm if the colors represented in the ZR24W in this picture really does look like the real thing? > http://www.flatpanelshd.com/review.p...&id=1272354232 (it's in the bottom are of the thread, it's a series of side to side comparisons of the U2410 and ZR24W). Thanks.

Looking at those photos i wouldn't say the dell is that much better and there seems to be a blue tint on the HP in the photo, there's no visible tint that i can see on mine (compared to my other monitors).

I'm using colour profiles from this site

http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles...m#the_database

I would have went with the Dell because i work with graphics and renders quite a bit so i'd rather have went with it, that being said i my i'm really happy with the HP and probably wouldn't have noticed much of a difference anyway. I'd say best value for money would be the HP.

Here's some comparisons of my setup, far left is a low range Advent (19" 1400x900), middle is the HP and right is an LG M1994D (19" 1680x1050)

Thanks a lot! This was very helpful1, based on these images I can tell that the ZR24W can render colors quite well and accents reds and blues properly, unlike the PX2370 which no matter how well I calibrated it, still couldnt show rich reds and greens. Although, I would like to ask how to switch from color profiles, like switching from sRGB to Adobe RGB, and does the ZR24W have a heavy AG coating? The U2410 provides a much wider color gamut range, so Im still leaning towards it, but the ZR24W is looking pretty spiffy as well, can you site more examples of why the ZR24W would be a better choice aside form it being cheaper? Thanks.

bad review, after calibration and gets a insanely high .29 black level, what a joke. tftcentral also has far more detail in it's reviews and uses much more precise and objective measurements.

Color I will let you know tomorrow...My U2410 should be here when I get home from work..We have the older 2209WA's at work and they are awesome..The picture quality and the colors are awesome on them..I think the U2410 will be as good if not better.
