Budget Monitor for retouching

Anybody here using Dell monitors for high-end editing?

more specifically the UltraSharp series U2410 and U2211. both of them have good reviews regarding colour calibration and black depth on tftcentral.co.uk

they run at an average £200 - £300 on ebay, btw

If money wasn't an issue I would definately go for EIZO or NEC, but in the meantime... anything will be better than a MBP 15'' matte screen.

regards,

have slimmed down options to HP LP2475w and dell U2410, leaning slightly towards the HP as reviews claims it has got better "blacks".

both running around £300 - £350 (HP being a bit more expensive)

what do you guys think? any other recommendation?
