Ok, so never in my life would I have thought I could love some monitors so much....
This year for my birthday and christmas I got two 24" high-def LCDs from Dell. The model number is 2405fpw. Every place I read about the monitor gave it rave reviews. [Heres one from PCWorld, another from PCMag] In fact, I've read that this monitor has enough contrast that radiologists are starting to pick them up.
Some of the highlights of the monitors are that they are 1920x1200, high high contrast 1:1000, DVI & S-Video & Component & Composite, built in USB and 9-1 card reader, rotates back-forward-sidetoside, adjusts up and down, and did I say 1920x1200! : - P
So maybe I'm just a little excited.
For me it is great because lately I've been working on image resampling and I was getting tired of my old KDS CRTs that were always blury and everything seemed shifted. The picture is very sharp and I haven't found a single dead pixel on either of them!
Also, since they rotate, I've got one rotated for full size webpage viewing and the other is horizontal for coding. With these monitors I never have to worry about scrolling side-to-side within my development IDEs!
Here is a quick pic of how they are setup.
