I was thinking about this one but given how it was released almost 2 years ago and it has some troubling cons I was wondering if something better exists now for the same price range.
Is there anything else in this price range? Lenovo ThinkVision LT2452p maybe.
Which of the cons is particularly troubling for you?
Color calibration? If you're a photo pro you almost always need to calibrate your monitor. Colors are a little cold on my IPS screen as well, but nothing that bothers me for gaming, watching movies or surfing the web.
Ghosting? Really noticed in two movies with very fast scenes that are all grey, but nothing that comes to mind that makes me wanna trade for TN. IPS is slower than TN for FPS gaming only I would recommend TN.
HDMI input? If you need it, it could be a deal breaker, but the monitor has DVI, Displayport and even VGA in, HDMI is for consumer electronics, 16:10 screens are intended for office.
