Some time ago I was taking a look to budget IPS monitors like DELL U2311H and NEC EA232WMi. Nowadays the first one has been substituted by the DELL U2312HM, which seems better from several standpoints, not so much from other ones. In the recent past the NEC was quite expensive compared to the DELL one, and seemed suffering some light bleeding issues. However the EA232WMi dropped its price and today it costs about the same price DELL tags its U2312HM. I don't know if NEC has actually solved the light bleeding problem (any user experience is welcome!), however DELL and NEC 23in IPS displays are know quite similar. Same size, same panel type, nearly the same black level, brightness, and contrast ratio, similar price (at least, here in Italy, even though NEC features 2 years warranty while DELL offers just one year).
That said, the review compared the new DELL monitor with the older model and its big brother the U2410M, but the NEC rival is not mentioned. So eventually if you have to choose between the NEC and the DELL 23in displays which is the one you think would be the best choice?
