I have the Iiyama and was concerned about lesser image quality with it being a TN screen etc. However it's cheap price swayed me. I have been very happy with the screen and to me the image/colour quality seems fine, I sit directly infront of the screen so have no problems with viewing angle. I haven't seen an IPS or VA screen to compare it to, but they aren't really available for the same price anyway! Reviews on the net such as http://www.behardware.com/articles/680-2/lcd-24-iiyama-... suggest the colour reproduction is pretty good out of the box. I reccomend the monitor! - Boffinboy
Dell LCD's are not good... I own a 19' 4:3 Dell and a Samsung 19'. The Samsung is a 953bw and far outshines the dell. Got it for $200 at Office Max, couldn't be more happy with the resolution and contrast. Anything bigger than 19' and your gonna need a beast card to run things at full settings lol.
I own the Samsung SyncMaster 245B not the plus. But, as far as my eyes can see, the colours are spot on/very vivid and the brightness at max is blinding with no light bleeding. You can also physically move the screen to suit your position easily too. Tiz very rare to get screen tearing with vsync off whilst gaming. Also I think Samsung have a 'No dead pixel' policy.
All in all a happy user .
*Edit* @ soldier37: I see you can't restrain from showing pics of your rig again tiz nice mind.
Generally speaking, a 26" LCD monitor may not look as sharp as a 24" LCD monitor because the pixel and the spacing in between the pixels are a tiny, tiny fraction larger.
IPS panels typically offer better color reproduction and accuracy. They also have the widest viewing angle with miminal color shift, until you go to the more extreme angles.
One weakness it has (excluding the expensive price) is that blacks are subjectively not as good as the less expensive PVA/MVA. IPS panels sometimes have "crushed black" issues where dark colors are displayed slightly darker than the actual color. For example, on a scale of "black 0" is pure black and "black 255" is pure white, black 30 (a very dark grey) might be displayed as black 20.
