With a TN panel, it darkens down as you get off to the side, or above and below. In addition, IPS panels give you better color reproduction...which is why they are the monitors of choice for graphics professionals. On the downside, they have slower refresh rates than TN panels, so lots of gamers avoid IPS panels and go with TN panels. Honestly, current generation IPS panels are more than fast enough for nearly every gamer out there.

Here is a great clip on YouTube which shows the dramatic differences a monitor can make. He compares the Dell U2410 that I want with 2 TN panels. Go to the 7 minute mark to see the differences.
Looks really cool. But they're quite expensive Not sure I can effort it with my 200 bucks

Fredegail.

The two 23" monitors-one Dell and one Viewsonic I mentioned in my earlier post are both much cheaper than the 24". 24" screens seem, sadly, to be being replaced by 23" ones as this fits the 16:9 HD TV format better. Hence the 24" models are now much more expensive as this is no longer a standard size.

The two I mentioned retail at just over 200 British pounds. The Viewsonic has had a load of rave reviews here for it's great quality and value for money. I appreciate that £200 is slightly more than $200 but not a lot.
I'd check both of those out if I were you, Cheers, John

Thank you John!
Seems like Dell is making quite good monitors?

I don't really care about keyboards, keyboards are keyboards!

Yes. I don't have much time for most Dell stuff. They're ok but the pcs tend to use cheap components. Dell monitor division is a separate entity and makes some of the best professional monitors you can get. I'm putting money aside for the 27" for when this one gives up on me. It's showing no sign of failing but, as I said in my initial post, these things have a lifetime after which they are likely to fail.
Like most electrical items it's a bath tub curve, either they fail immediately or carry on for a few years and then fail.

Trust me you buy a really good keyboard over a 10 buck one and you will notice a major difference.

I've been looking at the Acer 24" LCD P246HBD, it's exactly 200 bucks and looks nice.

Well it's a TN panel. No height, tilt or pivot action. It's got no LED backlight. It's got limited output ports. A 24" panel would normally be 16:10 aspect 1920x1200 so it's stretched 16:9. It's not much cheaper than an IPS panel. I just looked and I can't find a decent review of it anywhere. What can I say?
