3 regular Samsung.. OK & 2 are sRGB however they don't hold calibration longer than a few days...

ASUS PA248Q 24" IPS look very decent and I'd like one for my main monitor... next upgrade..

How thick are they?

All the best ones are noticeably thicker (say 1-1.5" compared to generic LCD screens.  It may simply be a case of the thicker ones have better air-circulation & cooling ability therefore more likely to be a more regular temperature (and thus retain calibration).

Also do you leave the monitors on for (say) half an hour before calibrating?  (as this allows the temperature of the components to settle and thus colour emission from the screen will have reached a constant level).

As far as I'm aware they're fine for home or general office use but as far as I know they don't do ones specifically taylored for photo work (wide gamut, high-bit gamma etc.).  Only certain monitors by Eizo, LaCie, NEC, HP and Dell are the obvious choice for photo work.

EDIT:  that said, the HP LP2475W wasn't a proper photo monitor yet still does a fine job as many will testify.
