Decent monitor

Looking to get a new monitor for Matt for Christmas. Between 21 - 23" preferably, I like LED screens and budget is 130 max, but the cheaper the better.

Any help or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

(hdmi port is a must)

Re: Decent monitor

That is a TN panel though, well worth spending the extra for the IPS one I posted.

Re: Decent monitor

Colour reproduction, viewing angles ect, overall a much better picture, IPS panels are cheap enough now that TN should only be considered if on a extremely low budget imo.

TN
TN (Twisted Nematic) is the most common technology and also the oldest. The main advantage is that it provides the shortest response times, making them good for gaming. In combination with LED back-lighting, TN monitors also offer high brightness and draw less power than competing technologies. Another important factor is that they are cheap to manufacture, resulting in low prices for end users.
The drawbacks to the technology is the color shifts that occur at wider viewing angles. There are large differences in quality between different products, but the lower-end ones will exhibit color shift even at moderate angle changes. A TN-based display can usually be identified through these color distortions when viewing the picture from above or from the sides.

IPS
The main advantages with IPS monitors is that the technology offer noticeably better color reproduction as well as much better viewing angles. The downside used to be a difficulty to emphasize blacks, which in turn meant problems with the contrast. IPS panels were also very expensive and slow in the beginning.
Now the manufacturers have started producing so-called Super-IPS (S-IPS) panels at reasonable prices. Response times have crept down considerably and the contrast is much better. In addition, color display and the options to calibrate the colors are superior to the other panel types. IPS panels keep colors constant, even in sharp angles.

For 11 difference, its not bad. IPS seems pretty cheap now. I guess TN is on its way out?
