The 2408WFP is followed up by the U2410. The old screen was an S-PVA panel by Samsung with standard sRGB gamut, the new one has a H-IPS panel by LG with wide gamut close to AdobeRGB. The older had the better contrast, the new one has a shorter input-lag. I think it also came down a bit in price, as the IPS panels are slight cheaper than the PVA panels.

The looks are not that different, but you will see the new one has a much wider gamut, and thus bolder colours. The image will look different.

The old screen is on sale at a lot of third parties, and is still easy to get.

I have the U2410. I'm totally loving it. If I were you I wouldn't bother with the older model. –  humble coffee Nov 11 '09 at 3:31

still available in Europe (via DELL Ireland)

DELL ULTRASHARP 2408WFP

on the US website, this seems to be the the only 24" UltraSharp:

Dell UltraSharp U2410

... which is available in Europe too, 10% dearer than the 2408WFP.

Yes, I looked into some more 2208's and they have some similar stuff available, but nothing with the same dimensions.

It is disappointing, because I bought two and was going to buy 4 more so my screens all match. Now I have to buy all six at once. Probably next year.
