I've recently just purchased a HP LP2475W for £357 delivered which meets each of your requirements except the zero dead pixel gaurantee, but I've purchased hundreds of monitors in teh past few years at work (mostly cheap TN panels) and I think dead/stuck pixels are a rarity.

This HP is absolutely stunning when properly calibrated - it's way too bright out of the box - and betters my Samsung 215TW which itself is a pretty good PVA monitor.

IMO for £360 the LP2475W is hard to beat (the same panel can be found in Eizo models costing ~£1k) with Display Port, HDMI, DVI, and a host of other connectivity inputs - check out the reviews on Trusted Reviews, PRAD, TFT Central etc, but take the bit-tech review with a pinch of salt... all LP2475W monitors have a H-IPS panel.

It's a big shame that the 1920x1200 monitors are so few and far between. The difference in price between Dell's U2410 and U2311 is just insane. £335 for just 120 extra pixels. Are we going to have to accept that people only want to buy TVs and monitors that have 1080 somewhere in the spec?

About bit-tech's reviews, I agree they lack some hard figures but I actually like to read a nice short subjective review of the monitor. I actually trust bit-tech reviewers' judgement as they have proven to show eye for detail and demand for quality in other reviews. Sometimes I just want to be told "get this one - it's good". If I want charts and figures I can always look at TFT Central.

I'm looking forward to seeing more bit-tech monitor reviews this year, especially if they come in the 1920x1200 flavour! :)

Zero dead pixel policy is worth its wait in gold.

Shame about the lack of inputs though.

Brought my Samsung from SCAN and they were merciless with me when it had several dead pixels, refusing to exchange.

No, they are not always as nice as everyone says, would never buy a monitor from them again - you would get a more sympathetic response from Amazon.

Yeah 1920x1080 is taking over and mostly took over now but I'm a gamer that goes back to old games, I'm currently playing morrowind now and are forced to run it at a non native resolution which looks horrible because my monitor is 1680x1050, if I had a 1920x1200 monitor I could have it at 1600x1200 and it would look perfect. I'm basically limited to the HP HZ24W or whatever, maybe I could get one with somewhere that has a pixel guarentee =\

You're referring to the ZR24W, which is actually the successor to the aforementioned LP2475W.

Its 24 inches, has a 1920 x 1200 resolution, and best of all, has a standard gamut, meaning that for movies and games, there will be no need to calibrate the monitor to remove the oversaturation of colors that extended gamut monitors like the LP2475W show on most applications(the LP2475W makes blues look purple)

It has virtually no input lag, and has one of the fastest response times among IPS panels, that you can't go wrong, really! (Price is very reasonable too, about £270 from the UAE)

I wanted the exact same specification and have just purchased a HP LP2475W for £357 delivered. OK, so HP don't to my knowledge offer a zero dead pixel gaurantee, but as an ICT manager I buy hundreds of cheaper TN panels each year and in my experience dead or stuck pixels are a rarity these days.

The HP LP2475W is a 1920x1200 H-IPS panel (the same panel in an Eizo will cost you a grand), has Display Port, HDMI, DVI and a host of other inputs, and once properly calibrated is fantastic (it's much too bright out of the box).

IMO at £360 it can't be beaten. Check out the reviews on Trusted Reviews, PRAD, TFT Central, etc.... and of course bit-tech.

I agree, its a fantastic monitor.

I can't stand "any" ghosting at all. If you know how to look you'll see it. It's more prevalent than you realize. Thankfully 120hz has closed the gap between CRTs and lcds but we are not there yet. That will be the perfect LCD to me.

I don't get it - this seems inferior to the EA32WMi-BK, in the quality of the stand, the lack of DisplayPort (really? in 2010?) and the price (speaking in Canadian dollars, the NEC was $55 cheaper last week than this ViewSonic monitor is - prices from http://www.shopbot.ca/m/?m=ea23wmi-bk)

I haven't SEEN the monitors calibrated side-by-side, so I really don't know if there is much of a difference, but I DO know that I haven't seen anything at all that can surpass my NEC monitor in quality.

I forgot to mention STANDARD gamut display, not interested in wide gamut at all otherwise trust me I would, and the LP series does indeed have the warranty I desire :P

Anyone know how this stacks up against the Dell U2311H, as Dell are offering the 2311 for under 200 notes at the moment?

I like the look of both of them, but I think the Dell is edging it with the extra ports.

To those complaining about HDMIL €10 buys you a dongle to turn DVI-D into HDMI.
All you need to worry about (if you connect stuff with DRM-ed misery) that is has HDCP (which is also the same on DVI and HDMI)

BTW I even saw those dongles on sale at the local DIY hardware store, they are available everywhere.

Addendum: that was the Euro sign that failed to display, it is 2011 though..
