I assume 2ms means cheaper TN panel?

I'm assuming it's TN for the size and price.

As does the quoted viewing angles.

The specs are odd, 1200:1 contrast on a TN is something I'd expect first from someone like BenQ so I wonder if this is 600:1 contrast and they're claiming twice that from 'dynamic contrast'.

I'd strongly suggest waiting for a reviews since digimates in the past have been pretty awful.

Why not go for 2 22" screens for less then this 1?

I'm looking for a new monitor and this looks tempting, but another £35 would get the 28" Hanns.G from Misco. I don't have a problem with TN's, especially when I see the prices of S-IPS and S-PVA panels.
