New IPS monitor purchase, Asus or Dell or LG...any suggestions?

Hi everyone. I did a little searching on this forum and found some people like the ASUS PA238Q model. Wondering if anyone has any experience with any of the trio I will list below. Looking to buy a new one soon in the next couple months. Budget is at most $500 but would like the cap at $450 honestly, right where the Dell resides.
This is the LG IPS231P-BN Black 23" 6ms IPS Panel.
This is the ASUS PA Series PA238Q Black 23" 6ms IPS Panel
This is the Dell Ultrasharp IPS-panel U2410 24" 6ms

I crossed referenced the parent sites and all three have what I am looking for. That would be:
1) Size between 23-24"
2) IPS panel of course
3) 8ms or faster response (gray to gray)
4) VESA mountable for swing arm
5) Recieve good reviews on various websites

Im currently using an LG 19" TN panel so any of these will be a significant upgrade.

Im leaning towards the Dell but for reasons that may not be relevant. The size of 24". The Dell is the most expensive of the bunch at $450 direct from Dell. The Asus is very tempting for its size and features relative to its price. The LG is the cheapest and was only considering it because of this fact.

I am no expert on monitor features and performance, I only know the basics. So any help would be appreciated. I am currently using a color calibrated workflow with the colormunki photo, love that little monkey! I plan on having the monitor for quite sometime and thats why im allowing for a $500 budget, that and since im working with the colormunki I want the best results I can achieve.

Sorry for the long windedness. If you need any info that I may have neglected please let me know.

Cheers. Cheers to what we possess within ourselves. Cheers to the possibilities of this day.
