Monoprice sells decent monitor arms, as does Ergotron.

The monoprice ones aren't bad, but they're pretty wobbly and it bends down but not bad for $20 either.

You can use any household cleaner, such as Windex. Though, if you let it sit on the monitor for an extended period of time it'll eventually eat through the mylar.

tl;dr - don't worry about what you use to clean a monitor.

TFT Central is a excellent place for reviews but I haven't found a place for industry information of the sort. I think that most LCD manufactures are trying to get in on smartphone craze and are putting all their resources into that.

Macbook Pros don't have IPS screens (yes, it's absolutely retarded that a $2000 laptop has a loving TN panel), but iPad/iPhone do.

Uh, what? I'm pretty sure you're 100% incorrect, I tried googling a bit but I repair plenty of macs for a year or two and the screens are much better than opposed laptops.

Are there any 24" IPS monitors with a decent response time, a relative lack of input lag, and either no or very little antiglare coating? I realize that's probably asking too much, but I figure it couldn't hurt to ask.

1. The OP really should be updated, since there's literally 4 monitors that anybody is recommending, and your question falls under one of them.

2. Are you sure you know how monitors work? There is no such thing as a monitor that won't display BF3, I'm not sure I understand what you're asking.

Enough scolding, your answer is go to newegg or amazon, find a monitor in the size you like and in your price range from a maker you've heard of, and buy it. They will all be TN and they'll all be pretty much the same.

We could probably use a new thread at this point.

It's comparable to any high-end 24", it's suppose to compete with the U2412m but without extra inputs.

I'm not sure if I'd use it as a desktop monitor but if I'm coming from a Dell Ultrasharp 2005WFP, Dell 3014W or another IPS-Monitor would I be disappointed? I'd be using the 4k mode for work and web-browsing then switch to 1080p for gaming.

I've recently run into what I think is a capacitor issue with my Dell 30" U3011 after almost 4 years of owning it. It's conveniently just outside the Dell warranty and no one will service it so I guess I'm stuck either attempting to fix it or buying a new monitor. I really liked it while it was working and didn't really have any issues however now I'm hesitant to buy anything from Dell. Ideally, I'd like something that doesn't die but I know manufacturing processes and build quality for major monitor brands are very similar.

$1500 is my budget and I'm looking for the best possible monitor for graphic design use. Minimum size 27". Probably an IPS display or whatever will get me the best colors. Thank you for your help and let me know if there is anything I can clarify that will help narrow down the best option!

Wouldn't a TV Repair shop have an idea of what to do?

I have a U3011 too but mine is still in warranty but holy hell that sucks.
