A year ago I got an Iiyama ProLite E2472HD monitor. It's a 24" LED backlit, and it works fine although if I'm honest I am disappointed by the lack of auto adjust (for some reason the option is greyed out) and it required a lot of tweaking to get the display right and even now I still think the colours are a bit washed out, although I can't for the life of me find the adjustment to fix this.
Also the viewing angles are extremely poor, the screen is noticeably darker at the top than at the bottom, even when looking directly at the screen.
Anyway moaning aside, I've been seeing IPS monitors get a bit cheaper recently (Initially I thought they were in the region of £800 and only available to professionals and of course the iMac). I don't have a huge budget for this but I was looking at the 24" Dell UltraSharp U2412M.
So I was just wondering how much of a difference I'd notice with an IPS display. From what I see of the iMac screen, the colours should be amazing and finally not washed out! And of course a great viewing angle too. But what do I know, I assumed all IPS displays have a glossy, glass screen just like the iMac, lol.
Thanks for your input
I won't be able to buy this for a while though, so if new technologies / monitors . price drops are on the way then even better.
