Both are excellent monitors for general purpose needs. Both provide razor sharp images, good color fidelity and good viewing angles. Honestly to pick one over the other on image quality / performance outside of gaming or movies would be splitting hairs. The PLS is a bit more gaming orientated the Dell more professional orientated. Both are good kit. So honestly it would come down to price. The Dell is 1 bill cheaper and for basically that much you can grab a decent color calibrator and end up with perfect colors...OR extra warranty (always a good thing and Dells pro line RMA dept are worth the cash). So for my money I would grab the Dell.

Only caveat is it will a) use more power and b) create more heat. If neither matter (or not enough) the Dell is honestly the one I would buy.

Thank you AkG.

Sorry but at this time there is no plans - that I am aware of - to review this monitor. It could be that someone else here is going to, but I am not.

I just got the 24" Samsung S24A850DW From CC for $439.99 in store sale absolutely the best monitor I've ever seen. Very happy with it, so clear, doesn't hurt eyes. Huge 1900x1200. Coming from a 22" This was a great upgrade. Colours are incredible... Gaming is great too. I almost got the 650 which was half the price but no matter what 16:10 is so much better. It also has a different screen as the 650 was 8ms this was 5ms.

They have the monitor on demo hooked up to an actual PC, they also have a few games on it as well at the mississauga store.

I can't believe there aren't more reviews about this monitor honestly... Actually I didn't even know about it because I was so focused on finding an IPS monitor, I almost got the cheapo LG231P but decided to keep looking around and found this and was sold the moment I played around on the desktop :)

Does this have a matte or glossy screen?

Answering my own question...

matte

It's matte, and I'm still using and loving this monitor. Though not sure if I'd recommend it over say a Dell or cheaper stuff out now
