Windows 7: Good Buy? IPS & TN Panels

Good Buy? IPS & TN Panels

I'm looking into buying a dual monitor display with Dell UltraSharpTM U2410 Monitor being the IPS panel but I see another one I was looking at a while back which has a good price with this "Black November sale NewEgg is having. I was waiting around to see if they have any sales on GPU's to complete my system but thinking ahead I need a monitor either way.

I need a monitor and it seems like a good buy, any thoughts?

I was looking at IPS panels because of graphic design and their better color spectrum etc...I have a thread about it but its 3 pages long and from 2-3 months ago.

Are you saying that that you want to go with both an IPS and a TN panel at the same time? I'll be honest, after using the IPS seems quite unlikely that you would want to drag something over to the TN panel. But I do realize that going with a dual IPS solution is extremely costly.

What you might consider doing is splitting the difference and getting 2 of the Dell U2311H monitors instead. These are the lower priced Dell IPS flat panels. They are about $300 for a 23" display. So, 2 of them would cost you $600 and get you consistent imaging between the 2 in a dual monitor setup. While not as nice as the U2410...the U2311H is going to be better than the TN flat panels.

Here is a review that covers that monitor

Authoring MMC Panels
Among the numerous flat-out ridiculous problems with Windows 7 I've had since moving from XP one of the more annoying is the in-ability to save authoring changes to MMC (.msc) panels. In every single OS version that uses these panels I've been able as a user (or admin) to right click and author...

Two Control Panels
Been using the RC for a while now and the only real bug I've noticed is that there are two control panel icons on my desktop toolbar. I've tried unchecking control panel by right clicking the desktop-->personalize-->change desktop icons but it keeps reappearing. Any ideas?
