I'm still waiting for a 1080P or 1920x1200 24" model of this.

Come on LG\Dell... release them in the US already!!!

Those are TN panels.

Totally different display technology and from what I understand its far inferior to IPS.

I just recently saw my first non-TN screen (a 42" Vizio LCD) and it looks incredible compared to the TN panels I've seen. The colors and the viewing angles are significantly better.

You can't currently get a cheap IPS panel (in the US) other than the e-IPS 22" from the original post. Most S-IPS screens are 30" and cost over $1200. MVA and PVA are alternatives with good picture quality but there is so much processing\input lag that I'd never even think of buying one.

I personally could care less about viewing angles. When I'm on the computer the screen is right in front of my face. Who sits way to the side of the screen when they are on the computer?

I would be interested to see how much better it looks than a regular LCD monitor. The 19inch Insignia LCD HDTV I am using now looks great but I just wish it was a bit larger.

I had a samsung 226BW and this new 2209WA 22 blows it out of the water in backlit bleeding, color, black blacks. For 200.00 you will not find a better 22" on the market not to mention its the only 22" IPS period. I love mine.

like capt say, TN displays are quite bad compared to IPS.

TN owners that claim that there is no difference, never seen IPS.

my first LCD was TN, then I got PVA, and now IPS.

TN is the worst of the worst.

Ok I looked it up on Wikipedia since I was ignorant about LCD monitors and I found this interesting and informative link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TFT_LCD

I have no idea what my Insignia NS-LCD19-09 HDTV uses but it looks pretty damn good to me.

According to here http://www.pchardwarehelp.com/guides/s-ips-lcd-list.php that 2209WA Dell monitor uses the new Enhanced IPS (E-IPS) which is described on Wikipedia as "a low-cost AS-IPS display with lowered aperture ratio to increased transmittance, resulting in some off-angle glowing and, both, lower color gamut and contrast ratio."
That explains why it is so much cheaper than other IPS monitors.

I have this monitor and it really isn't much different than my other 22 inch which is an Acer P224W TN display. The Dell has a better viewing angle, but the difference is marginal. I prefer my Acer over it due to the fact that it has a better contrast ratio.

true, but it is still much better then TN panels.

TN is like some beat up common car, e-IPS is like lower model ferrari ;)
