Having trouble deciding which 24" monitor to get

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Here are some of them that I've considered

Asus VE248H

Samsung BX2431

Samsung BX2450

If there are other monitors out there that fit my needs and are much better than the ones I've listed above, do please recommend

I am considering getting one of these monitors and 2 more in the future for eyefinity. I will be using them for gaming and one of them for my PS3. Looking to spend anywhere from 200$ minimum to 250$ max

One more question would I be able to connect my logitech z506 to any of these monitors since both the samsungs do not have built in speakers and the Asus speakers are horrible. Or am I just forced to buy a monitor with speakers built in?

But yea, if there are any other monitors that you guys can recommend, I'm open to suggestions, except IPS monitors unless they have similar specs as the ones above and are in the same price range.

I've heard good things about the BX2450. It's no high end screen but does well anyway.

Some screens have a aux 3.5" jack input you can plug speakers into, but you cannot use your 5.1 setup (3 plugs) in any screen I've heard of. You'll need to get a adapter of some sort for your PS3 if you want sound/sourround sound.

anymore feedback on these 3 monitors? I've read so many reviews on the VE248H and I can't really tell if all the monitors have ghosting or that some of them are duds or not because I've been hearing mixed things from everyone.
