Same here, using a 24in 1920x1200 IPS (The PROPER computer monitor dimentions) and besides having good color for photo work, plays games with no noticable ghosting at all.

If all your doing is gaming and internet or watching all your videos on the monitor then a TN panel is "ok". But if you are doing anything else graphically they are crap, get an IPS. (Plus you get back your rightful desktop space from the pixel robbing 1080p television panels!

Thanks for the confirmation. That always comes up, but as far as I have ever been concerned, it's never been a real problem anywhere but on paper.

Well you know how FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt) spreads throughout the net without any real world facts. Sure you can always show something to be true to a point, but in the real world it rarely translates to everyday use. Sort of like saying air can kill you, true but....

Personally, I love the Dell U2410 monitors. But at $495 at Amazon.com right now, I can see why people just put up with their TN panels and claim they are good enough. But if you have ever worked with an IPS and a TN side by side, it's extremely unlikely that you would say you prefer the TN panel.

Well I can tell you I updated from a TN panel and the viewing angle and color fidelity of an IPS panel is far superior, plus.... no "gaming" issues

Anyway I paid $259 (includes shiping and handling) for my 21.5 inch panel at amazon. The way my computer workstation is set up the 21.2 (22 inch) was perfect, howver I'll eventually move to a 24 inch once I get back into my photography.

$450 for a monitor is not bad! My first 24" LCD monitor cost me a gob stopping $1400!!! When it burned out 7 years later and I had to replace it, $450 seemed like an incredible deal

But yeah when there are $199 24in TN panels out there though... But you get what you pay for!
