The 2711 was just on sale for $599 shipped again and I couldn't resist, got another one Smiley  I prefer it over the 2713 for it's wide gamut.  When LED backlights improve I'll switch over but I'll take the better colors in exchange for the thicker panel any day.
The U2713h IS a wide-gamut display, covering 99% aRGB, 100% sRGB, and 120% CIE.  You may be confusing it with the standard-gamut U2713hm.

No, it's not, compared to the 2711.

Sorry, but the U2713H is actually a slightly wider gamut than the older 2711.  The specs for the 2711 state "100% sRGB, 96% Adobe RGB, 110% NTSC (110% on CIE1976, 102% CIE1931)".  The U2713H is slightly wider than that at 100% sRGB, 99% Adobe RGB, and 120% CIE1976, 103% CIE1931. The U2713HM is only 82% CIE1976.  Gotta remember there are TWO different models carrying the 2713 number currently in the Dell lineup, though for some weird reason you have to actually search on the specific model number to find the U2713H in the online listings.

New NEC EA244WMi is quite an interesting low-budget solution.

It has a decent AH-IPS 8-bit panel controlled by 10bit 1DLUT. It doesn't have DUE (Digital Uniformity Compensation), but it's quite uniform:

It can be hardware calibrated with free NEC GammaComp MD QA, and most of popular sensors:
http://www.necdisplay.com/support-and-services/gamma-comp/downloads

After hardware calibration it's quite linear, here's 100 patch TRC validation:
White point error = 0.686204 deltaE
Maximum neutral error (@ 0.975117) = 1.681167 deltaE
Average neutral error = 0.838355 deltaE
Number of measurements taken = 100

I think it's on sale on the US site this week.  The Canadian site had it on special the last week of May for CDN$899 so I grabbed one.

FWIW, I ended up stretching the budget and getting a NEC PA241W and I really like it so far. Economized a bit by getting a Mac Mini as my new computer. Really prefer the NEC to the Apple displays, which are certainly not bad, as far as I can tell.

The Dell U2723H looks like the best bet for me but I can't get a definitive idea of whether it is compatible with the Color Munki - that was a signinficant investment so I'm not going to change that.

There should be no problem using the Munki and their (X-rite) software on that unit.

The only supported colorimeter for hardware calibration is the x-Rite i1Display 2 and it is the only one the Dell calibration software will recognize.  For software calibration any unit that is suitable for a wide-gamut monitor should work.

A 24" Dell with and IPS screen should be in the dollar range the OP indicated.  OP, you should go with a wide gamut (IPS) monitor, you might as well be able to see as much of what's in the file your working with as possible.  You can always turn on soft-proofing (assuming your editing software supports it) to see what you will get in print or in sRGB web output.

How about Dell U2713HM-IPS-LED? The price is $599, and my brother bought this one in last week.
