I have decided to just replace the monitors that I have cause one of them has a problem and I prefer to have them be identical.

What I am looking for is

1 or 2ms 
1920 x 1080 minimum
24" minimum
VERY solid base, as in the monitor does not move or shake unless I move it or shake it.
DVI x1
HDMI x1
Do not need built in speakers (but ok if it has them)
Do not need built in USB (but ok if it has them)
Small/Thin bezel if possible (not essential)

I am willing to look at 7-8ms if the screen is IPS


I know what I want but rather than spending hours searching for it thought I would ask if anyone has brought one lately or could recommend one.

How much do you want to spend and how many are you looking for? Dell UltraSharp U2713HM is currently on sale. If I had some money I'd consider it. ;-)

Its a little pricey, was looking around $1000 - $1200 (ish) for both.

Is that a IPS screen? I assume it is due to the 8ms response time.

I have the same LCD panel in HP's version of the Dell Ultrasharp 2713.  Yes, it is definitely IPS and the viewing angle is awesome.

Buy an arm for around $50 so it doesn't wobble and you're good to go.

Doesn't have HDMI if that's an issue......

Another thing to consider with the dell is that you won't be able to run it at native res @60hz with HDMI, HDMI 1.3 is only capable of 2560x1440 @30hz and 1080p @60hz.

So if you were considering two of these monitors for a double monitor setup with identical res/refresh rate you would either need to use two dual link dvi connections to your GPU or a dual link dvi and display port connection.

Thanks for the suggestion Mentaline.

I am not prepared to buy without the protection of the CGA thou :)

My current graphics card can't handle that anyway.
I am using 2x DVI ports for the two desk monitors and a HDMI for my large gaming screen.

So while I would like HDMI (in-case my next graphics  card can support that) its not a deal breaker for these two.

Ruphus option looks ok but the reviews for that model were not so favourable due to screen glare (which would be a issue for me)

Any other suggestions?

I have the 27" version of this:

http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=MONHDT1797748&name=HP-ZR2440w-24-S-IPS-Professional-LED-Monitor--1920

Almost complete lack of any glare is the main reason I got it.  It's the best monitor I have seen for suppressing glare, and the build quality is also extremely good.  Note also the 3-year onsite warranty!

That looks ok Grant.

How is the motion blur on that model?

Also what is the model of the 27" so I can compare.

I'm not a gamer, but I've never noticed any motion blur when dragging windows around, or when playing video.

My monitor is HP ZR2740W.  I looked for it on PB Tech's website, but didn't see it.  I bought it from PB Tech in November last year.

Have you considered this beasty?
http://www1.ap.dell.com/nz/en/k-12/monitor/dell-u2913wm/pd.aspx?refid=dell-u2913wm&cs=nzk121&s=k12 

Extremely wide and some interesting configurations. You can connect two outputs and control two sides of the screen separately... or just use it as one huge screen.

It's almost like having two 19" monitors side-by-side. vertical resolution is 1080.

Wait till next week when a discount will apply again...

There's a pretty in depth review of the 24" here: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/hp_zr2440w.htm - it seems pretty positive. I'm actually tempted to get one myself.
