New Monitor

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I am in the market for a new monitor, obviously for gaming, surfing the web, and the occasional photoshop. Currently I have a 22" Gateway Widescreen, looking for 23" and up, at least 1920x1080 or 1200. Price range is around $300, though $400 is tops. I've looked around, but am lost when it comes to monitors, so all suggestions are welcome.

Well you could get the HP 24 inch IPS its 1920x1200 and about $350 at Macmall.com its supposed to be a great all around screen...

I was looking at that and the Dell U2311H, but was worried about reviews saying have the screen is a pinkish tint.

If I went with a dell, is there any advantage to buying one off their site, than from another party such as newegg and amazon? Anything warranty and dead pixel wise?

U2311H isn't bad if you're looking for 1080p, or the LG IPS236V

EDIT: well Dell's monitors carry a nice 3 year warranty. What do you mean by dead pixel-wise? Are you referring to whether 3rd parties tend to have more dead pixels compared to Dell's online store?

If they tend to have more, and if they uphold Dell's Zero-Dead pixel policy.

I'm pretty sure if they have Dell's original manufacture warranty on it, then Dell will uphold it. I am not 100% sure on that though.

Shameless plug: I just got 3x U2311H monitors, and I'm loving the one I have right now at my house. Other two are at my apt back on campus

You don't need to spend that much for a new light projector in a box. Just grab the cheapest, highly-rated 1080p monitor from NewEgg and you'll be all set.

I bought them from the Dell site when they were on sale for $249.99. They shipped the next day, and arrived the day after that. So freaking awesome.

Depends on what he wants. If he wants to do more photoshop in the future, especially with photography, then an IPS would be a worthwhile investment. If not, then yes, I agree that he could probably go with the ASUS VH238H.

Get the u2311h.

I got a rev. A01 refurb and I don't have any problem with tint.
It's good for professional work and also games...I haven't seen any ghosting on mine so far.
