regarding a good monitor for PP jobs and accurate screen proofings, you might want to consider the "traditional" CRT monitors.

You'll get WYSIWYG results, from screen to prints output ( after careful tweaks and simple calibrations ).

Been using one since 2004 and still going strong ... :thumbsup:

I have not tried a HP monitor ... However, Sony, NEC and ViewSonic CRT Monitors are very good for the PP jobs ... in fact they were the defacto standard used by the Imaging Industry ... You might wanna consider Samsung, as these are being used by my commercial printers, for RGB outputs.

I checked and Dell is selling 2211 for $299. There's no offer for 2311 leh.
I just checked, there is no price for this model only got 'call dell'.
i think it's temporary out of stock due to overwhelming response.
it still worth it even without promo at $329.
where on earth can you find a 23" ips panel this cheap in the market?;)

If I am not wrong, U2311H is temporary out of stock, the green custom/buy button had been replaced by Call instead.

U2311H has one of the best out-of-the-box color accuracy, even better than the claimed "factory calibrated" U2410. This is a great plus for ordinary user cause most do not own a hardware monitor calibrator. below are 2 professional reviews:

U2311H review by TFT Central

Colour accuracy Default - Out of the box, the U2311H offers the most accurate colours with dE average of 2.4, closely followed by the ZR24W at 2.5. the U2410 is a distance behind with 6.7dE.

*
If DeltaE >3, the color displayed is significantly different from the theoretical one, meaning that the difference will be perceptible to the viewer.
*
If DeltaE <2, LaCie considers the calibration a success; there remains a slight difference, but it is barely undetectable.
*
If DeltaE < 1, the color fidelity is excellent.
U2311H review by FlatpanelsHD

The default mode is very impressive and the best so far from Dell. This is quite extraordinary from a &#8220;cheap&#8221; monitor. Gamma is very close to our target of 2.2 and only varies from 2.19 to 2.27. This means that most colors are accurate and also that picture is neither too dark nor too bright.

....................................................................................................................
Color deviations are not huge except for the blue color. Most other colors are within the 3-4 delta-interval which is quite good for a default color mode and very impressive for a monitor in this price range.

Dell U2311H has no sRGB mode but the Standard mode is pretty much satisfying as a sRGB mode.
result from my U2311H:

Factory default with Standard color mode, only brightness is tune down to 12


Standard color mode calibrated by basICColor to D65


Custom color mode calibrated by basICColor to D65


As you can see, U2311H achieved 0.11 cd/m2 in factory default mode with only brightness tune down to 12. for comparison, the best U2410 can do is 0.20 cd/m2 and that's at 0 brightness. not to mention the green color tint and the pink issue on white and light gray background. my U2311H is completely free of these problems.

found this bad comment on 2311



Title: Disappointment Date: June 3, 2010
Product Uses: Gaming, multimedia

ReviewPros
Dell UltraSharp U2311H 23-inch Widescreen Flat Panel Display
Contrast n Brightness is amazing and easy to calibrate.
The stand being able to shift height, swivel and rotate.
Port options are real handy.

Cons
Despite being an IPS panel, screen has a gradient. Doesn't comes with pre loaded calibration like its 24inch Ultrasharp.
There is a gradient of cool(left) to warm(right) from left to right. Its obvious when you select 50% gray as display picture. Despite calling up Dell after 1 day of usage they offer to change a brand new set on the following day, result is the same. Gradient remain there. Basically can't be use it to work on photoshop as the left and right side of the screen display 2 tone of color temperature.

Review
Great price for a gaming/multimedia monitor.
23inch model is a disappointment in the Ultrasharp series for the color Quality due to the gradient. Not a monitor for working with professional color correction.

This looks great. Wondering if during COMEX the price will be cheaper. I've been looking for a cheap and good IPS panel monitor to replace my TN panel LCD monitor, seems like this is the best that I can get :D
