Summary: This is my first experience with IPS monitors. Other reviews say these monitors are a must for true colors on photographs. I rated this 4 of 5 stars becuase this monitor is doing exactly what other positive reviewers have said, but it's not wowing me.
Summary: It didn't say IPS on the box so I was a bit worried. But I hooked it up and it worked great! I'm not a hardcore gamer/artist/movie person but I do like to draw or edit my photos on photoshop occasionally when I have the time.
Summary: I was lucky enough to find a PA246Q monitor stand on an auction Website for $40. Because this is VESA-compatible, I now have an awesome IPS monitor that swivels/rises for a total of $219.99
Pros: Picture quality is amazing in both games and videos. I game in a dark room, and have not experienced any backlight bleeding, etc. as some others have. Also, no ghosting whatsoever in games (Killing Floor and Mount & Blade: Warband so far). You really can't beat this monitor at this price.
Summary: Really like this one. Image quality is very good, comparable to my older (and far more costly) Dell Ultrasharp. Mine required some calibrating for best video viewing. I don't see any back light bleed (as another review mentioned) and no dead pixels.
Pros: Accurate Colors Bright, Crisp Images Three Year Warranty
Summary: After about a month of working on this monitor I have realized that this is one of the best purchases I have made monitor wise. I have compared this monitor to 2 other monitors both being TFT type and this monitor really does show the shame in the older technologies. Pros- Price and price.
Summary: I bought two of these monitors about three weeks ago. One of my two older 20" displays on my Mac Pro died. So I decided to sell the remaining Apple 20" display and buy a matched pair of 1080p LED displays. Unfortunately, there's no way to really know what you're getting online.
Currently the best bang-for-the-buck monitor you can buy!

Summary: I am very picky when it comes to image quality. I have two Dell U2311s at home and needed two more for work. The U2311 has been discontinued so I had to look elsewhere. Low and behold I find this inexpensive eIPS panel by Viewsonic.
Pros: Very inexpensive for an IPS panel. Excellent image quality and good colors. Zero dead pixels, no bleeding, something rare for a backlit LED panel. Easy to set-up. Very light weight. Good power consumption.
Cons: Wish there was a height adjustment. Only DVI and D-Sub connections (no HDMI, no Display Port).
Summary: Most IPS monitors are expensive for a reason. I was expecting to get something similar to to the slightly-more-expensive 23" models available (which have also been thoroughly reviewed by reputable sites), just without the bells and whistles. Next time I'll buy something with more reviews available.
Pros: Cheap, fine for reading documents, browsing the internet, etc. Response time would be great for an average gamer, were it not for the major con.
Cons: There is an unbearable purple glow coming mostly from the bottom corners when viewing it straight on. It's really the whole screen--it just depends on what angle you are looking at it. Unfortunately the angle this effect shows up is so small that it's distracting even when viewing the monitor str...
