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)
Dell UltraSharp U2412M 24" LED LCD Monitor
ASUS VS239H-P 23-Inch Full-HD LED IPS Monitor

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

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.

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.
