Excerpt: After some research I decided I wanted the following. 1. IPS panel (better than TN for photos) 2. 24" (27" is too big for my desk) 3. 1920x1200 4. sRGB color space The Dell came up as a top pick and the few others in the price range used the same panel, but were more expensive. This one calibrated well using the x-rite Color Munki and I am satisfied.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Fantastic monitor -- great value when compared to Apple monitors.

Summary: Fantastic monitor -- much less expensive than the Apple monitor and quality is just as good. I just had to purchase the DVI to thunderbolt adapter by Apple and was up and running in 5 minutes. The MacBook Pro laptop recognized the monitor and immediately configured for optimum viewing. Would definitely recommend to a friend -- great value considering Apple's prices for an extra monitor.
