IPS Computer Monitors

Hello, my online research shows me that I'm looking for:

1. Only an IPS monitor with LED backlit

2. As big as possible

3. As inexpensive as possible

4. DVI and USB inputs would be great.

5. HDMI a valued option.

6. 100% NTSC coverage plus a perfect sRGB emulator.

7. 8 bit dithering. Unless an Apple computer with 10 bit dithering capabilities goes with it.

  1. 1. None exist in the consumer market at this time. LG announced a series back in Sep. 2010, but no release date yet.

    2. IPS monitors ranges between 22" and 30"

    3. IPS monitors ranges between $250 (Dell 22" U2211h) to in excess of $1,500+

    4. Not a problem

    5. None at this time at a low price point (under $500)

    6. Possible, but there's no such thing as a "Perfect" sRGB emulator. There are usually trade offs.

    7. IPS monitors do not use dithering. Dithering is for TN panel monitors which are incapable of creating 16.7m actual colors. TN panels can only create 256k actual colors therefore dithering is required. You are referring to a 10-bit LUT for the Apple I assume. LUT = Lookup Table for better color accuracy, but generally added cost and input lag.

    ================================================

    At this moment in time nothing meets your requirements primarily due to:

    1. No LED backlight for IPS monitors.
    2. No HDMI (for inexpensive IPS monitors)


    Probably the two best monitors that meets most of your criteria are:

    1. HP ZR24W

    Thanks, jaguarskx, I'll look into them. As usual, my vision of a perfect product isn't marketable when I need it.
