I think you mean IPS, unless you meant get one from your ISP that they used to use because big companies always afford more expensive stuff and maybe you could get a good deal on a warehouse sale of their old equipment, dunno.

LEDs have more inaccurate colors. I'm guessning thats not good for movies and games ?
tryagainplss: I'd love to have vibrant colours and buy an ISP but unfortunatly it's out of range
I was looking at the BenQ-GL2430HM:
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/BenQ-GL2430HM...item3f055d9a38

it's seems reasonable for the price and inputs.
Any Suggestions ?
I have about the same monitor, my only real complaint about it is its blacks aren't black enough, and has a bit of light bleed.

But for the price, its great, I got it on sale for $200 CAD all inc

I guess everyone got the clarifications out of the way but I'll reiterate.

-LED is an alternative backlight implementation in place of CCFL. The difference in color gamuts for WLEDs and CCFL is about 4% in the NTSC color space. "The difference is hardly detectable by the naked eye however." Unless you are a professional photographer it really doesn't make a difference in how images look.

-Edge lit monitors still give you the advantages of LEDs while keeping the monitor thin. Not really a gimmick, mostly marketing hype making it seem better than what it really is. A backlight matrix throughout would give you better uniformity and the ability for localized dimming for increased black levels. I believe localized dimming is only used on TVs.

-The white LEDs used don't really emit true white light, they are blue LEDs dipped in phosphors to give them the reach into the other color frequencies. RGB LEDs which are used in professional monitors can give you true white light and 114% of the NTSC color space. A 24 inch RGB LED LCD can be in the thousands.

-There are different panel technologies such as TN, PVA, and IPS. Pretty much any IPS or PVA panel will do better than the TNs in color accuracy. IPS and PVA trade blows in some respects but most people go with IPS. There are different levels of IPS, but generally if you are not a photographer any will do good. Backlight bleed depends on the quality of the panel and how well the monitor is put together.

-Input lag and response time are different on each monitor. Smaller response time means less motion blur and usually 120Hz monitors have better response time by design. But, don't go by the Manufacturer's specs as these tend to be fictional and just as useless as the contrast ratio spec.

-Input lag is something else to consider and is never revealed by the manufacturer. It's the amount of time it takes the monitor to display a frame once it recieves it from the graphics card. You might lose multiple frames if your input lag is abnormally high. Genuinely you'll only lose 1 or 2 frames with most LCDs, the only way to have zero input lag is to go back to CRT. 16.7 ms of input lag translates to 1 frame using a 60Hz refresh rate.

Input lag tends to be over emphasized when making a monitor decision. Don't make assumptions on the input lag based on the panel type.

I think that will give you a good head start or make you as lost as ever since now you won't be relying on spec sheets for comparison. Happy hunting, I'm looking for a monitor for my friend so I'll let you know what I turn up.
