Photography, video editing, web browsing all favor 16:10 over 16:9 due more pixels display. For gaming most gaming resolution will be fine with the 16:9, but overall the 16:10 will be probably the better choice.

If color accuracy is important for you, then IPS certainly is a great upgrade for you. You can't go wrong with any of those monitors, so just picked the one that is best for the price you can afford of course.

If both aspect ratios are going to be IPS, then it's pretty much up to your personal preference for the resolution. The color quality of the IPS will be miles above the TN panels. Viewing angles are phenomenal, and you won't notice blurring on the two Dell monitors (never seen or read reviews of the HP, but I would assume it's blur free also)

Personally I want to get a u2311 because of the price, but if money were no object I would get the u2410 from your list because of the extra vertical real estate and it's slightly bigger. (and I would really love to get the even bigger u3011 if money is really no option)

I just have a couple gripes with 16:10 because I will be watching TRON: Legacy Blu-ray on it and I loathe the black bars around the screen.

1920 x 1200p is so much better than 1080p for games, computing, photos.

I agree with above, if it for movies than 1080p.

16:10

I currently have a U2711, which is 16:9, and I'm returning it in favor of the ZR24W. Actually the U2410 would have been great if not for the dead pixels, black depth, and input latency. It has the best response time out of all of em, and you really do notice the lack of trailing.

Oh also, I'm primarily gaming, browsing, video editing, if that gives you an indication.

Dell U2311H: $1750 HKD ($225.093 USD)
Dell U2410: $3849 HKD ($495.077 USD)

No idea about the HP.

I'm a heavy web browser, usually 3 windows and 15+ tabs in each. And I do photography and heavy graphics work, which one out of the 3 (U2311H/U2410/ZR24W) has the best color reproduction? the best response time?

16:10 is a lot more clear for gaming. For video editing it gives you a lot more space. For photography, I like it more because you can see more of the photo. I just like 16:10 a lot more. Ips vs your led, Ips will blow it away.

Id say the HP but go to tftcentral if you wanna be ultrasure. The u2311h is eIPS while the u2410h has some color tint issues as far as I've seen. HPs monitor is HIPS an it's pretty nice

5) IPS vs my current LED TN Samsung PX2370?
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 alot of videoediting and photography work. Buy the U2410 or the HP. If you mostly will use it for webbrowsing and gaming. Buy the U2311H.

QUESTION: can fraps record 1200p? because if it can't then I will just go with the U2311.

UPDATE: its the U2311H vs U2410 right now, the HP kinda fails on the price.

are you crazy man? and trust me, if you're even considering it, 1920x1200 makes a world of difference. Go with either the HP or the U2410. If you care about wide gamut, get the Dell, if you don't care about wide gamut, get the HP.

I personaly haven't tried the u2311h, but I hear people say it's colors are a little more washed out than the u2410. Let me just say, if you ever plan to go for triple screens, and you don't have $1000 to frop on new monitors, get the u2311h, because it's cheaper. To answer your question about fraps, yes, I do it all the time

Yes of course. It can record 3x 1600p if you wanted.

I don't understand how the black bars around the monitor in a 16:10 is an issue when in reality both 16:9 and 16:10 are displaying the EXACT same size when watching a movie. Am I missing something here?

This also goes for FOV between 16:9 and 16:10 when playing games. If it bothers you that much you can play in 1080p resolution with a 16:10 monitor. But I don't see why anyone would.

I vote U2410.
