I believe the dell 2408wfp is MVA, not IPS. I also have the dell 2408wfp for about a month now. I love it, the picture so bright, and the colors, omg.
Mine does have a couple quirks tho, the left side (maybe 1" off the left side) of the screen sometimes is brighter than it should be. I dont notice it on a webpage like this, where its generally bright all across, but i notice it on a webpage like gamespot with the grey on each side. I constantly forget its there though, and rarely notice it during video or anything like that, because its NOT backlight bleed.
And i have to switch from graphic mode, to video mode when watching movies to get the colors to be correct. If you don't sometimes you wont notice, but in some scenes you'll notice theres too much of an overall green tint. And when first switching to video mode from graphic mode you might think its overly blue, and i think it is for desktop use but its perfect for movies.
I had to lower the default brightness from 50 to 30, change the preset mode from desktop to RGB values of 92-90-98 (which i took from some1 else's calibration but it looks nice)
The biggest thing is the leftside being a little bit brighter than it should sometimes (not backlight bleed, have a blank screensaver in a dark room very very little backlight bleed) but i've looked at other monitors and this thing blows me away everytime i look at it, i love it.
