IPS panels have tended to be expensive ino the past but as the technology has matured the prices have been going down and quality has been increasing. At Hardware Canucks you can see an example of this in the 1920×1200 24" Dell UltraSharp U2412M. As this is a new generation IPS display, its response time comes close to a TN’s at 6ms although the price of just under $400 is not quite in the ballpark of a TN monitor. The overall conclusion was good, as the colours and viewing angle met expectations though there was some evidence of ghosting in both movies and gaming thanks to the slow gray to gray latency. Not enough to sour those Beavers; they think its a Dam Good Value.
"By offering a reasonably large, high quality 16:10 IPS panel at a price point which is infinitely more palatable than the U27 or U30 series, the U24s have always been considered a great value. The all new U2412M, hopes to continue this enviable tradition by offering exactly what first time professional consumers want, at a price which undercuts many other IPS-based offerings."
