well a TV is hardly a monitor in reality.
Any comments on the new LED-backlit IPS LCD's?
say what you will about TN panels, some of us don't mind them at all, my computer glasses (instead of bifocals) are calibrated for 2', when you go to your optometrist you can request that, instead of the normal arms length setting or reg bifocals.
I just picked up a new Dell 24"
for the price it was hard to beat
I'm using an Asus VH236H (matte TN) panel; do you guys think it would be worthwhile to upgrade to a Samsung 2333T (glossy PVA)?
They're actually about the same price on Newegg, so I could sell the Asus to a friend and pick up the Samsung without shelling out much cash. I've never owned a glossy panel or a PVA panel before, though, so I don't really know whether or not it'd be worth it. I'm getting pretty tired of my gray-blacks and washed-out colors, though. I do a lot of gaming, but my reaction times are probably slower than even the slowest screens. To answer the inevitable wuestion, I've seen IPS panels and they look amazing, but I can't shell out that kind of money right now.

do you do anything which would require the absolute blacks a PVA brings?
Do you do a lot of HD Movie watching, and lots of things which require an accurate black?
If you dont, then i dont think you will really enjoy a PVA.
You will probably prefer your ASUS as it has a faster wake up time, so you dont miss your bios posts (on some boards), and u have less ghosting from a faster response monitor when you game.
Few things "require" having good black levels, but I'd expect it to improve overall image quality quite a bit. I do have a smaller TN panel hooked up as well that I could see POST on, so that's not an issue. Even if I didn't, many motherboards (including mine) have an option in BIOS to artificially slow down the POST so that you don't miss it.
However, reading the reviews on Newegg for this PVA panel, it looks like it has inferior color quality for its panel type. I was planning to buy a small SSD this summer as well, but I think an IPS panel would be a far better investment.
Consider my budget ~$250 for an IPS panel. What's out there?
Three I've found:
LG E2370V-BF 23" IPS, LED Backlight: $260
LG IPS231P-BN 23" IPS, LED Backlight: $240
Dell U2311H 23" IPS, CCFL Backlight: $290
Which of these would you guys recommend, and/or is there a better deal I should be considering?
