It's not just about colour accuracy. It's about fidelity. With TN panels, you lose detail when multiple colours appear identically.

This used to be a problem for me when I developed web sites and other content on a display that supports a greater range of colours. Testing on a TN panel was a requirement, to ensure subtle, but important details, were visible to all users.

I much rather have really really deep blacks and a good colour range.

If you want really deep blacks, the GW2750HM with an AMVA panel is a good suggestion. Of course, it's only 1920x1080, which many not fit your resolution requirements. Minimum brightness for IPS and TN come in around 0.12cd/mē at around 100cd/mē peak luminance. The AMVA panels are about half that, resulting in noticeably deeper blacks and almost triple the contrast. The RTC function on the BenQ AMVA panels works well, resulting in response times comparable to IPS panels.
For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.

But really what wins it for me is the warranty. There is not another single company for monitors that has as good of a warranty as Dell does. Zero dead pixel and cross shipping get my backing.
That's mainly the reason I'm likely to stick with them.
My country is only 7 million people and we're fortunate enough just to have Dell around although prices here almost twice more than you guys get in Newegg or Amazon.

Well I think that probably sums it all.
Not being a too competative FPS Gamer + much better colors and blacks + great warranty + 1400P = Dell
