Aha!!!! IPS is a dud because of the burn-in issues! rumors are true! Stay away from ips unless your up to exchanging it every 2 years, at least! Or five years!Dell 2405FPW, the first 24" LCD monitor, too I bought when it was released (2005?) for about 1200€. That started having image retention
Awaiting clarification on burn-in vs image retention.
