    Hi all Im thinking of purchasing a new monitor for my pc the main use of is rendering video although some gaming as well,I need a good 24" monitor with good colour accuracy and white balance with next to no colour bleed for the cash I have. My budget is around £350 doesnt have to be new as long as its in good condition with no dead pixels. Can anyone suggest a good one for my needs my current monitor is the YUSMART 198EP LCD

    There is no LCD panel that has 0 dead pixel warranty. The best you can find is a 0 bright pixel warranty. But, the law allows you to have a return window if you are not satisfied with your purchase. The details of that law (ie: Full money back, no restock fees for 15 days, let's say), varies based on the region you are in. This is where you can see how good and bad your consumer protection laws are in your region.

    Here, even if I don't like the colors, where the black is not the black I wanted, I can return within 15 days for my full money back on my purchase. Any extra days, follows the store policy. Dell has a 21-day return window, after 15days, Dell can charge you a restock fees, but usually waves it if it's an exchange to the same of different model, or return with "good reason" (one that doesn't involve dead pixels for monitors, or the stand/monitor casing color, unless it's defects in term of paint or plastic used).

    That put aside, the Dell U2410 is a monitor I highly recommend.

    To add, 0 back light bleeding is impossible with the LCD technology, due that you have a bright lamp on the back. But you can help reduce it.

    TN panels, has back light bleeding visible everywhere, affecting colors as well.

    IPS panels has black light bleeding only on the 4 corners of the screen, on blacks, and barely noticeable down to not noticeable at all with content being displayed. You can usually see it clearly, when you set your brightness at a really high level, on a full black screen, at night with your light closed. It doesn't affect colors.

    PVA panels are slowest panels (with the highest input lag) than the above, but provide the best of blacks, with minimal to 0 back light bleeding, even on a full screen black, at night. Also, PVA panels are more expensive than IPS. So they are not great for gaming, or fast action movies, like IPS panels, But they have great blacks.

    You have another technology, which is MVA, it provides you the advantage of PVA panels on blacks, much faster panel, but you have all the issues of a TN panel, and the price is close or the same to a IPS panel.

    Personally, I see no issues with the IPS panel. The Dell U2410 is freaking bright at 50% (default). I leave mine at 20-30%, At 100% it makes you blind... which is the settings where you see the back light bleeding. The only time you will pass 50% brightness, is if you have the sun hitting on your screen, in which case, you won't see the back light bleeding in any case.
