    I'm looking for a new gaming monitor,ideally 24" with a PVA Panel but trying not to spend too much,anybody seen anything around the £250 mark?,or is that just wishful thinking.

    e-IPS is a possibility (not as good as PVA but better than TN), although we're probably talking 1920x1080 rather than 1920x1200.

    Something along the lines of a EA231WMi could be a good compromise - it's around your budget at least.

    I'm guessing you just want to avoid TN at all costs?

    I suggest to look at the Dell 24inch U2410 (1920x1200) which comes pre-calibrated Adobe RGB and sRGB color profile, or the cheap version the 23inch (1920x1080), which has less inputs, no pre-calibrated colors, no picture in picture, the Dell U2311H.

    I have the Dell U2410, and it's a fantastic monitor. Watch out for specials. they are specials of 100$ or more on these monitors, especially on the 24inch.

    At the time I got mine, it was 750$ Can, and it was on special at 500$, and this where I got it. I already saw it a few months ago in the 420$ on special as well.

    I have only bought 1 refurbished monitor and that was my 30" W3000H for $600 CAD. It was worth it since the monitor came just fine.

    You might want to look into a refurb product or something thats on sale. I really recommend IPS panels over VA.

    Thanks for the advice everyone :)
    @ GoodBytes,the U2410 is a bit out of my budget (£370+Vat)and the U2311H doesn't seem to be in stock anywhere.
    @snootyjim,brilliant i've read a couple of reviews and this sounds perfect,even found somewhere that does it for under £300 posted,a bit over my budget but meh :thumb:

    The new HP ZR24W (24" H-IPS 1600x1200) is almost £100 cheaper than the Dell U2410 and almost as good. Could be a viable alternative.

    Same monitor bestseany suggests, by the way.

    I swear I saw a decent PVA 24" for about £200 somewhere on Bit-tech.

    Makes me feel good that my 24" PVA panel was only £160. (A Yuraku but don't bother becasue they've started putting TN panels in them)

    There was a guy selling a Dell 2407WFP in the marketplace about a week ago, I don't know if he sold it or not.

    I was talking about in the reviews. It might not have been a PVA one.

    Hmm,the HP ZR24W looks like a good one but a bit over my budget,I think I might go for the EA231WMi,again slightly over my budget but it sounds pretty impressive.

    The only reason I recommended the ZR24W is because I like the look of it for myself. It does look pretty good though and it has some good reviews.

    Save up a bit longer and get that instead :D
