24" Monitor Choice

Good morning, I'm buying a new monitor for post-production, but I'm getting more and more confused ...

These are the requirements:
1) budget: 400/500 USD
2) good chromatic gamut: 99% sRGB or more
3) minimum size: 24"
4) minimum resolution: 1920x1080
5) affirmed brand: Dell, Asus, Lg, Samsung, Acer (I'm skeptical about Benq) and budget permitting Nec and Eizo

I selected this models of Dell:
1920x1080 U2414H 270 USD and U2417H 270 USD
1920x1200 U2415 350 USD
2560x1440 U2518D 430 USD

1920x1080 PA238Q 340 USD
1920x1200 PA248Q 450 USD and PB248Q 390 USD

1920x1200 BL2411PT 340 USD
2560x1440 BL2420PT 300 USD e PD2500Q 430 USD

A) is there a big difference between 16:10 e 16:9 ratio to justify higher prices?
B) are there big differences between sRGB or AdobeRGB for an enthusiast like me?
C) on 24/25" monitors performs better 2560x1440 or 1920x1080px?
D) is a periodic calibration really necessary to justify the expense for a colorimeter (around 100 USD)?

I shoot with my Canon 80D, I use Lightroom and Photoshop to edit and I publish my pictures on the web and rarely print them.

Thanks in advice!
