Does anyone use a screen with an S-IPS panel, not larger than 24 inch, and if so which are the best ones to consider (up to about £400)?

I have a pair of [URL=http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/uk/en/sm/WF05a/382087-382087-64283-3884471-3884471-3648442.html?exp=direct&jumpid=ex_r2515_uk/en/smb/psg/psg_sem-se-xx-pu-prodrefq2_monitors_b2b/chev/20100202&tafcjnef=fy10&s_kwcid=TC|12933|LP2475w||S|p|4564133264]these HP LP2475ws[/URL]:
They're the best ones I found.
One of mine is two years old the other is a replacement which is about one year old. The replacement is for one which had developed a darker streak down one side. HP had an engineer out with a replacement screen next day.
When I measure mine with my colorimeter there is about 10% variation in luma and chroma values around the screen, but it hasn't been a huge problem for me.
I like mine a lot.
Feel free to ask any specific questions about them.

You might also want to consider NECs I have two of them.

I can vouch for then Dell Ultrasharp series, this is a link to the 23 inch IPS panel model. The 24 inch version is 470UKP so slightly outside your range:

Pardon my ignorance, but what is S-IPS?

IPS is In-Plane Switching, where the crystals are parallel to the viewing plane instead of peerpendicular to it as for Twisted Nematic panels, (the original LCD technology). IPS panels do not suffer from off-axis colour changes.
S-IPS is a development of the technology.

A bit late, but someone may come across this thread. I have the same as steve which is E-IPS I think. Currently under £200 and Quido etc is available. Great value.

Actually, mine is a 2407WFP. This year's equivalent is the U2410:

All their monitors seem good value for the performance and the professional models have 3 year swap out warranties.

As I originally asked for members advice about monitors, I thought I should say that I have ordered an HP ZR24w from HP Direct. I tried to keep the quality/cost factor in mind as it is intended for personal rather than professional use, and it comes with 3 years on site warrant - £320 delivered. Thanks very much for your replies. Tony C.

Good choice Tony. Not the cheapest certainly, but a very good screen.
