That one isnt LED.
Cant I just increase the font size on a 22" to make it easier to read?

yes you can.
Small dot-pitch = sharper image

Text too small? Hold CTRL and hit +/- or scroll up and down on your mouse wheel.

Hmm, or I could do that in right click on desktop,. screen resolution and make text bigger.
I think I will stick to 22", more variety.

I heard that 22" monitors use cheap panels, is this the case for the asus one?

By cheap, whoever is saying that is likely refering to panels being a TN panel instead of an IPS panel. IPS = $$$ TN is standard in the smaller, sub-$250 (USD)

Don't run anything other than native resolution (1080) or your images may look blurry. If you find text hard to read (and I dont think you will) I suggest using the zoom function I earlier stated or changing your windows font sizes to be larger.

The display in question is LCD display / TFT active matrix - LED backlight. -is that good or bad?
A 75mhz refresh rate
2ms response time
10,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio
250.0 cd/m2 brightness
Both HDMI and vga adapter.
http://www.asus.com/Display/LCD_Moni...specifications

Are these good specs for a monitor?
And how good are asus monitors? I know they make great mobos and all that, but not sure about their displays.

A 75mhz refresh rate I like this
2ms response time MFG response claims are almost always bogus
10,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio also bogus mfg claims
250.0 cd/m2 brightness seems a little low. fine for non-direct sunlight use
Both HDMI and vga adapter. always good to have options

And how good are asus monitors? I know they make great mobos and all that, but not sure about their displays.
These are really big, broad questions that will require you to do some research. Just read user reviews on newegg and look for the ones that seem to know what they're talking about.

Couldnt find any reviews in the UK but there are 86 reviews on newegg .
Going to have a read, thanks

Also, does anyone have any 22" LED monitors they would recommended?
