Looks like I'm in the range of a $150 monitor... No need for video editing for me... Just light gaming and slick deals surfing

Time to hold out for the next deal... hopefully I don't miss it!
You can find budget displays in this size for as low as $99 if you wait for the right deal. Otherwise you see them on here alot in the $150 range. The monitor deals tend to come in bunches I think.

The extra contrast of the A-MVA panel isn't "cheap", necessarily. e-IPS fits a certain profile of user, but it actually is the low-cost version of IPS, hardly the absolute pinnacle of monitor technology.

The Dell panel is pretty much the same as the BenQ, with the exception of the surface. The Dell is very glossy and the BenQ is matte. The Dell, though, tends to be priced significantly higher.

It is very high gloss.

BenQ's refurbs are often like new. My EW2420 was. The entire monitor, with the exception of the LCD panel, was still covered in plastic wrap. This is not like the Dell refurbs that come from leased machines. Those can be years old and worn out, with CCFL backlights.

27" monitors in that resolution can have a dot pitch that is too low for some users. Windows allows some DPI adjustment, but it's not perfect as far as I know. The 27" panels also tend to be glossy, although there are exceptions. Another issue can be that some gamers don't have powerful GPUs that can drive such a high resolution.
Hands down the A-MVA panel in the S2440L and GW2450 is a better panel than this PA248Q's and U24112M's E-IPS. The only reason to buy these are for the 16:10 aspect ratio. But, to me, if you are willing to spend this amount on a monitor, I say suck it up and spend an extra $100 to $140 on a 27" 2560x1440 display.
I bought a few S2440Ls for $130 each about 6 months ago and I bought the GW2450 for $140(and was credited $40 back by Newegg for having to exchange it twice due to lightbleed). Both are excellent displays. I prefer glossy panels to matte but to each his own. Also reviews tend to favor the backlight on the S2440L but they both have more issues than many monitors I have bought. Once you get a good one, you realize just how great MVA/PVA panels really are. These two are pretty much the only monitors less than WQHD that I would consider for personal use due to their great PQ for the money. Buying my $455 Asus PB278Q and $416 Auria EQ276W are some of the best choices I have ever made.. That's good to know about BenQ's refurb quality. I wonder how consistent your experience is among buyers? I fully agree that dell refurbs tend to be pretty terrible with a few gems hidden in the mix.

These are the sorts of details that make me go cross eyed trying to compare two sort of comparable specs, neither of which mean anything to me. As I said tho day to day its great. I dont know maybe the RPQ-A settings are subconsciously giving me night terrors but overall I am happy with it.

For light gamers, is this worth it? Or would it be better to get something more budget based.
I game on mine. I also watch TV/Movies on it. I love it. Things just look more ... alive than on my TN panel. Editing work is great. This is worth every penny.

While very basic, these wiki posts will give you a lot of information about LCD panel tech. You'll understand very quickly why VA panels are such a fantastic option. They aren't the same as the $150 TN panel bullcrap that you are referring to. Also, other than stand options and port selection, these MVA panels provide much better image quality in normal viewing angles than E-IPS technology allows. 1920x1200 is compelling, but not compelling enough to warrant the extra cost and the E-IPS 6 bit panel tech makes it so much less compelling than 8-bit 2560x1440 displays for just a little more.

Also, I am not trying to say anything negative about your purchase so please don't take it as such. If you are happy with it then I am happy for you. I just am trying to help people be informed in their purchasing decisions.

Can the catleap be turned to portrait with the included stand? I need this feature. Thanks.
You can buy a stand for around $40 which will do portrait. I actually bought this one for 41.99 just recently for a 23 inch lg IPS monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...llFullInfo

My setup is a 27 inch catleap and will be a 23 inch LG IPS 1920x1080 when the replacement gets to me.

I'm currently looking at this make/model IPS monitor. I want to use it mainly for my photo/editing (LIghtroom/PS) and not break the bank. Is this the best price/performance sub $300 IPS screen out there? Also would anyone recommend which connection is best? My laptop has both 1xHDMI and 2xDisplay port, does that affect in anyway the image quality? Any help would be appreciated.

I was initially looking at followign options: (sort by popularity from Amazon) Smilie
Dell UltraSharp U2412M 24" LED LCD Monitor
ASUS VS239H-P 23-Inch Full-HD LED IPS Monitor

So one connection is no better or worse than the other (HDMI or Display port). That's good to know.

It's an Envy17t-3200 found it also here on slickdeals i remember correctly.
