That price is for the higher resolution, 2560x1440. I was referring to a 23-24" monitor with an IPS/PLS/VA panel. You can get them for $250-300.

I bet you could........set a monitor with a TN panel next to one with an IPS panel and start looking straight ahead and move to one side or the other. I guarantee before long you'll see a difference.

I know you are right kbrady, but I don't want to spend the money so I will con myself into thinking they look the same anyway.

Maybe if you are working in the movie industry, or doing high end photo or graphics editing it would justify the cost, but for us regular folks, I bet we couldn't pick a PLS monitor out of a lineup!
Yep you would want to have some way of recouping the cost eh?

I understand! It is a big ticket item. Some people like smaller, dual monitors, some people want lots of real estate with a butt-load of pixels. I figure as much money as I've spent on components that go inside a box, I should spend an appropriate amount on a component I have to look at most of the day lol.

Hum the dealer I use stocks Viewsonic but only up to 24" and only two models - well under my top limit but the size is not there.

There are a few deals around though that range from $225 - $330 for the
ViewSonic VA2703 but I am not real sure as I have no experience with this brand.

Hum maybe I shall have to wait till after the big event but thanks to all or the input

Don't worry about the fact I replaced the caps in the power supply in mine. They are 4 years old and "ONE" of them one day took a while to turn on. So they all got re capped. If you have a problem with the invisible buttons on monitors it should be noted they work on capacitance and often a wipe over (unplug from power first) with an alcohol wipe usually cures the weird issues.
