That looked like a really nice monitor until: "there is about 11 mm around the top and sides that is black and does not display anything" (customer review)

I bought the LG monitor a few weeks ago for $292 after PM. Good monitor with great viewing angles and colors! Also has all of the ports needed to connect my PS3!

Which one is better, the LG one or the Dell? I am really thinking to purchase one of those...

That's why I started this thread, same question, lol.
I hoping that dell will be at least 250 and it has better reputation from the ultrasharp series.

What I am going to do is purchase the LG one from FS, test it, and I can always return it (within 14 days, FYI) if it doesn't work well.

The LG IPS panels have terrible anti glare coating it makes things very GRAINY
It's actually not that noticeable. If you have seen the Sony Vaio S Series laptops, which I own, that is EXTREMELY grainy.

Looks good but not zero bezel as advertised, here's a real picture (actually 1.2cm not 1.2mm)

Picked mine up today at FS. Tried it for few hours and I like it a lot. I used it for my photo editing and it's a big time upgrade than my stock laptop screen. The coating isn't making it grainy at all.

I was about to purchase the monitor, but upon viewing the full specifications it depicts a much slower response time of 14ms in comparison to the regular LG IPS234V model which has a response time of 5ms.

Also, the Dell U2412M is on sale for $249 although I'm unsure whether or not it's a solid deal.
