For the price this is the best Monitor on the market, the new PVA panels benq are making are great way better than any TN.
Nec, Eizo and benq are the best monitor manufactures, the rest are rubbish in my opinion.
For what its worth the Dell U2311 sells at a lower price and sports an e-ips 6bit+AFRC to make an 8bit panel, has great blacks, pivots, no SPVA black crush and gamma shift on or off axis.
No mention of the 'inter-unit variability' issues found on the EW2420? A rather long thread on the OcUK forums is filled with issues ranging from excess backlight bleedthrough to 'ripples' and dark patches seen on screen to varying severities.
Of course reviewers always seem to get the cream of the crop!

You forget Lacie. I have the 324, bought it two years ago as a replacement for my 22" Iiyama VM 513 and it is a fabulous piece of kit. Expensive yes, but worth every penny. I tried going cheap, it just wasn't worth it for the hit I was taking on image quality when compared to the Iiyama.
Speaking of Iiyama, it is a shame they moved away from quality hardware like the VM513 and decided to churn out the junk they do now.
Dell U2311 is still at £224.34 amazon, you can get one for £20, Benq is still cheaper, i own a PVA and a E-IPS and there is no black crush or gamma shift on PVAs, they are great the only downside compared to IPS is that PVA have some color shift when viewing at large angles.
this one's worth it
now if it was a 16:10 i would have bought it in a glimps but i dont stand 16:9 as a monitor. EW.
Update: Our pick of the best monitors gains two new entries from Samsung
