If you have one of these, how do you like it for color-critical image editing? The tftcentral review was very positive with special mention of significantly reduced backlighting bleed into dark areas and improved, less course, antiglare coating as compared to the previous ccfl version.
I love new satin coating in NEC P/PAxx2 series, with no exeption of P232W. I also like better uniformity, lower minimum backlight brightness, and slightly larger gamut. Backlight bleeding is something that occurs randomly, so it's hard to say if it's better without checking many units, but the few I saw were ok in this respect.
The only drawback of P232W is relatively low ~180Hz PWM frequency, so some flickering may be visible at low brightness level, which may lead to eye fatigue. In comparison - P242W has ~8kHz, and PA242W ~10-20kHz PWM.
