Giving my old monitor to my daughter so in the market for a new one.
I print with a shop that uses sRGB format. I calibrate with Spyder 2. Wondering if there is any benefit to obtaining an extended gamut monitor or stick with an sRGB monitor? Seems to me an sRGB would be just as good for me.
Leaning toward a IPS monitor due to reported better color reproduction and interested in comments by others regarding them vs TN film or other options.

Wishing LG would start selling the IPS236V which has good specs but has not been available for purchase or testing yet. They will likely come out after the date I need to get one.
Anyone with comments or suggestions?
