Need Help Choosing IPS Monitor

  1. I need to have an IPS monitor for doing my digital illustrations.
    Currently, I only have my laptop's display to use but it's not really good.
    I'm only starting out and still in the learning stage so I can't go for very expensive ones.

    Also, even though IPS panels are already very common, stores in my area only has few models and brands available.

    I'm choosing between these:

    Asus VX239H 23" Widescreen IPS LED Monitor

    LG IPS MONITOR MP65

    LG 23EA63V

    Dell S2240L

    I've done some research on it but I would really like to have a second opinion and know which would be the best choice.
    I'm also open for other suggestions. I just hope it's available here in the Philippines.

    Thank you in advance.

    I am using 2x Dell U2412M, eIPS panel, great viewing angles, great colors, great response time (gaming). And it's 16:10, not squeezed like the 16:9 options.

    I use the exact same monitor as vedolino and it's the best bang for the buck. As he mentioned above great viewing angles, 16:10 and I've never witnessed any ghosting in game. Great value.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I looked it up and it seems to be a very nice IPS monitor, it's available here too.

    One thing though... The Dell U2412M is lacking HDMI.
    My laptop only has HDMI & VGA ports. VGA is not good so HDMI is a must.

    But do you think using HDMI DVI adapters would work? I mean, it wouldn't affect the quality of display?

    Thanks again.

    Dvi and hdmi are digital signals, they consist of many 0's and 1. So either there is a signal or there isn't, it can not vary in quality. so, the quality will not be downgraded if using a dvi-hdmi adapter.

    Alright. Thank you very much for the answers. I'll go with the Dell U2412M.
    I just need to save up more since it's a few thousand over my current price range.

    Last question, should I still calibrate the screen or it's fine out-of-the-box?

    If I should, do you have any suggestions as to what software to use?

    It really depends on a piece. Mine is superb but you'll see in the end if you don't like the colours calibrate it :D because options
