    Default IPS Monitor or LED Monitor?

    I'm not a professional photographer nor video editor nor graphic designer. I don't work on complex 3D CAD/CAM either. Besides working with MS Office Suite and 2D CAD software, I just play games (e.g. Crysis 2, Dirt 3 etc), listen to my audio collections, watch 720p HD movies/videos and collecting color wallpapers I downloaded from the internet. So, is getting an IPS panel monitor an overkill?

    I was searching for a new 23"/24" full HD monitor to replace my old 19" one. So far the only type of monitor I could find that has a Display Port is IPS. They are slightly more expensive than LED monitors. Most LED monitors favor HDMI but my graphic card has six Mini Display Ports. Buying a Mini DP to HDMI adapter seems to be a hassle. Examples of IPS monitors: Asus PA246Q 24.1, Dell 24'' U2412M UltraSharp & LG 23" IPS236V.

    TN LED should be just fine for the everyday use. What is your budget?

    Sorry I got confused because here, IPS monitors are marketed as "Premium" or "IPS Panel" monitors. Non-IPS ones are merely referred as LCD/LED monitors.

    I was hoping for something in between RM500-RM800 (US$150-US$250 or EUR125-EUR200 if that helps).

    I suggest you skip the LG 23" IPS236V as it seem to have a lot of backlight problems
