The Dell U2518D can be had for $377.99 when factoring in coupon codes. Seems like it'll do the job and it comes with a 3 year warranty. Looks like the warranty is also an advanced exchange service with "premium panel guarantee.
The Viewsonic VX2478-SMHD can be had for $318. Also comes with a 3 year warranty, no mention on advanced exchange.
Overall specs between the two are very similar.
