I was looking for a monitor that has the following in this list:
*really only two choices. 8bit ips for the best... or 6bit any other monitor for standard. in your budget you are looking at 6bit panels
-2ms Response time
*unless things have changed only TN type panels were in this range. TN panels also happen to be regarded as the worst in terms of visual quality due to the very bad off-angle color shifting.
*power savings but doesnt really improve image quality
*keep in mind the two tiers 6bit (e-ips) and 8bit (h-ips, s-ips, p-ips)
*no comment, models should be available in this size
-1920 x 1080
*no comment, common resolution
*at this price range the only ips panel you are likely to get is e-ips
with all that said i will elaborate on e-ips a little. this panel type does not offer any particular advantage in color accuracy over tn or va (8bit ips does) but does offer a much better (almost 180 degree) viewing angle without color shift. response time is higher than tn panels but is pretty much negligible nowdays so you dont have to worry about it.
