    My ideal screen for work (web development) is 24" 16:10 1920x1200 IPS or VA.

    I mainly code, but sometimes do minor graphics stuff so reasonable color accuracy is nice (not critical though).

    What's the best options these days?

    I don't think 16:10 24" are being made anymore? So unless I'm mistaken, I'm going to be looking at 3 year old monitors etc? I'm fine with that, but if there's new options that I've missed, I'd like to know.

    I heard Dell U2414H was excellent with very low IPS glow but sadly that's 1080p/16:9. I really like the slight extra vertical that 16:10 gives.

    Maybe I'm out of luck and just have to shift to 16:9. Or maybe go ultra-widescreen like it's 2-monitors-wide

    Thanks

    The U2412M is ancient

    There is the Dell U2415 (which never got a newer successor iirc) or the recently released BenQ SW240 (which is pretty expensive 'tho because it is geard towards color critical work) and AOC I2460PXQU and the more modern looking AOC X24P1.

    At least here (germany) the cheapest one with IPS is the Hannspree HP246PJB for like 170$ but i don't know about global availability.
    The Acer B7 line has a 1920x1200 model as well which looks sleek.

    U2412M might be old, but they are fine displays. I'm still using 2 of them for my main rig. gaming movies editing all look great. Too bad I'm guessing you aren't in the SE Wisconsin area. I'd sell you mine for cheap. Although they are fine displays I'm wanting to upgrade to a 1440p setup. I need more real estate for my world of warcraft raiding.

    Dell 2415, usually sells for around $240.

    The old 2412 is sometimes available cheap, but I would pass on it because it's not flicker free.

    I've had a HP ZR2440W for several years that I brought to work. Works well for me. This looks like it might be the successor, seems expensive though.

    Unless you need a colorimeter, the monitor without it bundled is significantly cheaper.

    https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1286872-REG/nec_ea245wmi_bk_24_16_10_ultra_narrow.html

    NEC displays are known for very high quality control (along with Ezio, they tend to buy all the top binned parts in the panels they select for their professional lines), build them like tanks, and charge a premium for it. Even without the colorimeter, theirs is still $350 $100 more than the Dell.

    It's a 2016 model year, which might make it a newer panel than the dell 2415, OTOH with NEC's longer integration times it might not.

    I've owned 3 NEC displays from their previous multisync xx90 series (2x2090 1x3090). They've been great displays, but are really thick and heavy compared to the competition.

    Dells area great value (with quality) without a doubt. Are they as reliable as NEC? Eizo is more expensive still.

    What about in the 32 " and up range? Which Dell would you recommend?

    If you want good contrast and colors, go with the Quantum Dot VA Samsung C24FG... (forgot full model name). It might not be perfect, but if you are easily bothered by IPS glow and poor contrast like I am, then anything else at that size would feel even more like a panel roulette and a downgrade in terms of color representation. 144 Hz and FreeSync come as a bonus.
