I'm looking for the absolute best and most color accurate monitor in the above budget range. I'm not literate on monitors, but I am on computers. So I really don't know the difference between IPS and TN, besides IPS having more ghosting in games. I would enjoy something that has 120hZ refresh rate, but I'm not sure if that is color accurate.

I need your guys help!

[:dav0r:2] to ask you.

Oh, also would prefer something that is 24" and 1900x1200.

The Dell has an H-IPS panel.

Which is good for:
Amazing black levels second to only the top S-PVA panels.
Almost perfect viewing angle
Accurate colors
Very rich colors.
2.03 billion possible colors.

Slower response time

TN panels on the other hand are good for:
Faster Response time
Can be 120hz

Dreadful viewing angle. Noticable color shifts at corners of the screen even sitting dead infront of it.
256k colors, must use FRC and Dithering to mimick colors
Poor color saturation. Everything looks washed out.
Dithering makes colors and black levels look bad. Color gradients can look like bands of solid colors and very dark or very bright colors can look like pitch black or pure white.

The only reason why anyone should ever buy a TN panel is for 120hz or price. There is absolutely nothing good about TN panels otherwise. Response time isn't even that good. 6ms on the dell is next to nothing. Its like having 1 penny or having two pennies, not a lot at all.
