Also, from what I've read the U2311 doesn't perform as well as the BL2400PT, which uses the same panel as the ML249H. Is it a pretty safe assumption that both the Asus and the Benq will offer similar performance?

1) If you didn't think your performance would suffer due to a higher resolution, there's nobody to blame but yourself.

2) I can assure you that with the U2311H I get no eye strain. The brightness is adequate for all room light levels

3) I see a light green tint on blacks with my monitor. This is well documented within these and many other forums.

4) I've experienced no such issue on my 23".

Lastly, we're comparing an e-IPS to an IPS monitor, entirely different beasts.

I'm thinking about returning my SAMSUNG BX2231 for the LG IPS226V-PN. Good or bad idea? I've never purchased an IPS monitor and really hate the viewing angles of TN monitors.

Don't get fooled by the whole 30" IPS debate.

4.) Did I say it hurt when gaming over an hour

IPS suck for gaming in my book, period.

Stick to TN.

And this is from first hand experience.
Obviously faulty monitor is faulty. To apply it to all IPS's is stupid.

1) No duh, because you are running 2560 x 1600 as opposed to 1920 x 1080
2) brightness affects black depth. That and low FPS was probably more of an issue. fast moving slideshows over a hour gets to anyone.

Its actually not unheard of for S-IPS panels, especially larger ones (30"+) to require a warmup time, mostly due to the size of the backlight. Lines and such during the warmup period would warrant a faulty monitor.
Also; I only offer this simple advice to anyone looking to purchase a display for any purpose:
Go look at screens. Sit approximately how far you are going to be from the screen at the level you are going to be at. Preferably in similar lighting. Bring color swatches (if possible) of pure black and pure white (if not available, a piece of gloss white photo paper works well) and compare the black and white values on the screen. The rest of the color spectrum is negligible since it can be fixed with calibration.
Make sure the display is comfortable - you shouldn't be darting your eyes around to see stuff, and the display should fill your view adequately that you aren't able to see details in objects placed around the edge of the screen.
I personally use 3 24" S-IPS panels, and the warmup time although present isn't horrible, it takes about 15s for my monitor to power on and become visible from there it takes another 1-5m for the backlight to be completely warmed up and the brightness to become stable. Its not a drastic difference between being cold and warm but it is noticeable and measurable with a colorimeter.

I'd never buy a monitor from newegg. Their return policy is atrocious on LCDs.

Based on the panel it uses, she seems solid. A true 8bit. I can't find any reviews on the panel used nor the model...

I personally would do it. It's an e-IPS monitor but it still should be leaps and bounds better than a TN. The only gripe is the stand, yuck. You can't move that thing up/down.

Alright, I'm going to make the switch (hopefully). Are there any other monitors around that price range worth purchasing?

Thanks a lot, really appreciate your feedback.

Alright, so I think I'm finally sold on the U2311h.

Before I actually place the order though.. How bad does it ghost and how bad is the input lag? I play a lot of insanely fast paced games, so ghosting and input lag would be a deal breaker for me.

I've been looking for a monitor under 350 also and have been looking at the LG IPS panel. I wonder how good they are.

Post your experience with the Dell, seems to be the monitor everyone is recommending.

If you play insanely fast paced games and need serious response time then you need a CRT.

(Response time)
CRT > TN > e-IPS > IPS

There are panels omitted but for the purposes of this forum it should suffice.

I play shooters on my U2311H, there's really no noticeable delay.
