    Default 24" monitors

    Does anyone know why.

    this Dell G2410H is so much cheaper than this Dell U2410

    The cheaper one is LED LCD and the expensive one is LCD.

    Is LED so much cheaper than CCFL?

    Contrast ratio for the U2410 is 80,000:1 whereas for the G2410H it is 1000:1.

    Don't if, in itself, this justifies the large difference in price.

    (I also thought IPS panels were cheaper - or maybe I'm remembering wrong).

    The more expensive one is higher resolution, 1920x1200 compared to 1920x1080. Apart from that it's probably just a higher quality screen.

    It's the panel. IPS panels cost a lot more than TN ones but have better viewing angles and colour fidelity.

    The G2410H is a TN film screen with an LED backlight from what I can see.

    I did a lot of research on screen types a few years back. TN is the cheaper/budget mass produced technology, with the characteristics doodab described. Generally if you see an amazing "to good to be true" deal in the likes of PC World it will be a TN film screen. To verify, walk 180 degrees around the screen and it is a dead giveaway.

    I looked into this a few months back, if you're a pro photographer or desktop publisher go for the more expensive panel otherwise save your money, the cheaper TN panels generally have much faster response times so better suited to gaming.

    The 1920x1080 will play xbox, ps3 and bluray in native resolution, the other one will have bars top and bottom.

    I decided to get a good TN over a low end IPS as it suited my needs.

    WHS and CheeseSlices article actually confirms that TN panels are what the majority of consumers need.
    I've got 2 dell 22" panels at home, both dirt cheap and both more than adequate.
