    CAD/Photo monitor suggestions?

    I'm in the market for two new monitors for my office. I am a draftsman, and also do some photography work. I am looking for an IPS monitor that is 1920x1080 or 1920x1200.

    The monitors I have been looking at are:

    Asus ML239H 23", 1920x1080 LED backlit - $219 through PCCG.
    The reviews are positive, though I can't find an Adobe RGB percentage anywhere.

    Dell U2311H 23", 1920x1080 - $299.
    The customer feedback is positive, though some people have complained about the anti-glare coating.

    Asus PA246Q 24", 1920x1200 - $655 through PCCG.
    Reviews say it is exceptional, some say better than the Dell U2410.

    Dell U2410 24", 1920x1200 - $679.
    A very popular monitor, always reviews well, though there have been a lot of complaints about colour tints on the screen with this latest revision.

    What are peoples thoughts on these screens? What screens have I missed from the list (I haven't looked for monitors for about 5 years)?

    Other information:
    I have a Spyder3Elite calibrator that I use on all my screens.
    My office has no windows, only 2 fluro tubes overhead, so glare isn't an issue.

    As for budget, as I am buying two screens it gets expensive quickly. I am prepared to spend the extra on the 24" monitors if they are really THAT much better, but with the price being around triple it has to be worth it.

    Using Nikon & PS CS5.

    I work on CAD (Tekla) too, and I would recommend a 24" monitor with 1920 x 1200, the 1080 high screens always seem a little lacking. I have a Dell U2410 at work, and a 20" Dell at home. The 24" is better for work and photography.

    Nikon D810
    Nikkor AF-S 24-120VR, Nikkor AF-S 16-35VR, Nikkor AF-S 70-300VR, Nikkor AF 50 f1.8
    Tamron 90mm Macro
