LED monitor under $300? - Page 3

Amazon.com: Viewsonic VX2450WM-LED 24-Inch (23.6-Inch Vis) Widescreen LED Monitor with Full HD 1080p and Speakers - Black: Computer & Accessories

You may even like the price of it XD
I have the 22inch version of it as well, and in comparison to the U2311h, it's AWFUL. Colors are washed out, everything is too "cool" especially at the bottom of the screen, with the opposite happening toward the top of the screen. It's not a bad TN panel - but it's not in the Dell's league at all.

Honestly, this particular comparison shows everything that is wrong with TN and LED, and what's superior about IPS and CCFL.

I completely agree - my roommate has two IPS panels, one being a Dell and another an Asus (not sure on the models of them). Just looking at the image quality of them makes me want them, but I don't have the money to spend on them, hence why I bought the Viewsonic. Having a stable job would help XD

Well, I got the LG IPS-LED I mentioned a few posts back and its a great improvement from my old Samsung 2220WM. I have 30days to fully evaluate the LG. The Dell just went back up to $320.

Anyone know a working display port to dvi adapter for eyefinity?

Keep in mind the LG only has a 1 year warranty compared to 3, and the Dell has display port built in so no need for an expensive active display port adaptor. (they appear to be 25-30 dollars on Newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ayport+adapter )

What's the stand like on the LG?

I was able to squeeze in my old monitor onto my desk. I ordered this adapter.


My Samsung stand is rock solid because its a height/tilt version and is very hefty. If I shake my table, the LG shakes the most. If I hit the table, my Acer shakes the most. The LG stand is okay, but not the best.

Well after two sets of LG IPS236V, I settled on the HP 2311x. Here is my story:

My first LG (manf Dec 2010) was doing well till I noticed gaps in the plastic bezel. It looks like there were some defects in the plastic molding. I could live with that, but then I noticed this burn like tint on the bottom corners when I set my wallpaper to all white. So, I exchanged it for another one to see if this is "normal". The new one (manuf Feb 2011) still had the burn tint and I could live with it. No bezel defect. Then I noticed unacceptable backlight bleeding on the top, right corner when my wallpaper is black and my room is dark. So, I returned it and got a HP 2311x and got $60 back. So far so good. No burn tint nor bleeding. I think my laptop is the same type of LED-TN screen and its great, but not the best. The guy working the counter at Best Buy said someone came in to return the same LG monitor for the same problem. I guess Ill avoid LG monitors.

As for the eyefinity DP to DVI adapter, I think I returned it without doing more research. On the manufactures website, there is a firmware update for the adapter that would fix the flickering. It was a power problem and the firmware would increase the threshold. I never knew there were firmware upgrades for adapters. I have the mDP to DVI adapter coming in on Monday.
