I use a 24" dell every day at work (2407 i believe the model is), I can't seem to adjust the monitor to get a nice balance between brightness and contrast, its rather frustrating. Obviously hasn't been colour calibrated in any way being a work monitor - this may help a great deal.
Based on this I don't think I'll be buying one when I eventually upgrade from my current screen.

Thanks for the replies.
"Excellent value for money" does it for me .
I've also read a couple of reviews and might just "bite the bullet". Have to do it tomorrow - a special offer expires...
Tim, when you say "calibrated", do you mean just using the program that you can download from this site or something else? Also, I know that the screeners use Dell monitors, but what model exactly, if it is no secret?
My old Dell 19"CRT was a bit blurry and I always had problems finding sharp enough images to edit. Any amount of time looking at a blurry display always played with my eyes and I would have to limit my editing to 30 minutes or less.
The guy at the retail store told me that the LG was twice the monitor than the Dell LCD I had my eye on was. He was right!!
Now I can sit for hours and edit or play with my websites...best monies I ever spent!!! IMHO

If you were looking for a 19" Dell monitor, the guy was probably right. All the 19" Dell's are TN flat panel type, which is pretty much is good for games and general use only.
The Dell 24" UltraSharp 2408WFP utilises a completely different panel type, S-PVA. They are great for graphic applications, and they are nearly twice the price of Dell 24" with TN panels. To get an S-PVA panel, you need to go 24" and higher - they don't seem to make them smaller.
