Geek: New Monitor Dell 24inch Ultrasharp

I've been chasing around for a while for a new monitor. I find I need to work at 1900x1200 but my eyesight doesn't want to let me work well on 19inch screens.

Fellow MVP Ken Schaefer suggested trying a Dell 24inch Ultrasharp (http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/products/Monitors/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=320-6272).

It arrived today. What can I say? I love it.

Recommended!

I have a pair that I bought early last year for use on my home computer, and I absolutely love them.

Now if I could only convince my boss that they make me that much more productive that he has no choice but to get them for me at the office too.  :-)  (There I currently use a pair of 19" Dells.)

I've used an LG 24" for about 9 months as a second monitor to my notebook. I love it.

Hi Paul,

It's the high contrast of the Ultrasharp I like. Most 24inch monitors are about 1000:1. The Dell Ultrasharp is 3000:1. The difference is very noticeable.

Regards,

Greg

Yes, the constrast ratio is important. Pixels counts are even more important. My 30" HP monitor with 2560 x 1600 pixels really does improve my productivity. It is big enough to display two legal documents side by side and life size in Word.
