    Got the 23" version, and loving it.

    Make sure your graphics card can handle it. Merely satidfying Dell's recommendation, well, it will work, but you will be fustrated.

    I think your best bet is the 2407-HC. At least is not a TN monitor.

    Some says it's too bright. Some says the colours are too fake.

    I am running dual DVI 24 inch DELL HC and do not have a single problem in colour shift or whatsoever.

    Good graphics will help as well. I am using ATI XTX1950 (yes overkill for 2D but I do play games as well.........hehe...) and I think it's one of the best combination I have had in years.

    Next you may one to get is a good decent monitor calibrator too.

    So the monitor itself is ok lar but if you want to fine tune it to around 95%-98% correct colours with your prints, you will need a good eye as well.

    Have been using Dell 2407 for the past one and a half year.
    Never give me a single problem at all.
    Bought it at around $1299 with 5 yrs warranty.

    Now the price drop even further more MTL.

    Check out Samsung Syncmaster 206BW or 906BW, response time is only 2ms.
    IMO, Dell monitors are overpriced.

    How much are the ones you mentioned?

    I would say ACD is over priced, not DELL.

    I got the 24WFPHC in the recent sitex show. 849 with 5 yr warranty.

    quite a good panel for its price. The colors looks a bit saturated and the panel under default settings is way tooo bright for indoors.

    Mate, wrong thread? Nevermind that both the panels you've mentioned are NOT 24-inch, both also use twisted nematic panels, considerably inferior to S-PVA or S-IPS panels when it comes to image quality. The 2407-HC does have ghosting issues, but it's S-PVA.
