I would go for 16:10 for all of it, the only thing that you do not want 16:10 for is for watching movies. All the things you listed would benefit from the extra 11% of vertical screen space.

16:9 (1920x1080) gives you a larger range of view. it's technically better for gaming.

16:10 (1920x1200) gives you more vertical pixels for workspace.

You forget that you can run 1920x1080 in 1920x1200

Also on 1920x1200 images take more pixels to form, and therefore you can see enemies far of into the distance slightly easier.

Neither is automatically better for gaming than the other.

And with 4:3 resolutions, it's even easier LF>Dual DVI 1920x1440 display.

Sounds like you're a gamer. If you don't own a colorimeter, and don't plan on getting one, get the ZR24W. Out of box picture is better, and the U2410 only has an "sRGB emulation" mode (even though it's decent). You end up paying for a lot of stuff you don't really need. Sure it's nice, but all games, and almost all content (aside from color manged apps like photoshop) is in the sRGB color space, so using a wide gamut display will make everything look horrible. The U2410 is geared more towards photography, the ZR24W is geared more towards gaming. I had the U2410 and realized, oh darn, I should have got the other one. Then De-Zant here convinced me to get the U2711, the jerk .

And now I have to return that too hahah.

1) 16:9 (bigger FOV and better compability)
2) 16:10 (more pixels)
3) 16:10 (more pixels)
4) Doesnt really matter cause both resolutions are enough for such easy task.
5) IPS (better colors and viewing angles)

If you do a lot of video editing and photography work. Buy the U2410 or the HP. If you mostly will use it for web browsing and gaming. Buy the U2311H.
