Quality Full HD monitor for around € 350 / $350 - 24 or 27 inch ?

post #1 of 3

Hi all,

I currently have a 20 inch widescreen 16:10 1680x1050 LG L204WT monitor that I bought around March/April 2007. At the time I paid around € 350 for it, which wasn't top of the line, but not budget either. It was a considered a good midrange monitor, and that is what I am looking for now.

So, the budget is € 350 / $350 max. If I can spend less, the better. What I don't want is a subpar monitor for the price, just for size. If I have to do with a good 24 inch instead, so be it.

I've always been a fan of LG because for starters they make their own panels, and pay attention to detail, such as allowing you to turn off the "on" light while the monitor is on, which is a practical thing I'd like to have in my new monitor, so any LG monitor suggestions are welcome, or any that also allow you a good level of customization, along with quality.

Having said that, here are some guidelines:

- No glossy screens;

- 5ms or lower response time;

- does not need to have built-in speakers, nor be able to be put in portrait mode or be able to swivel, just tilt is fine;

- 16:9 is fine. No need for 16:10;

- I don't get along with LED backlit displays, so, CCFL please;

- if an IPS panel is available, the better, as long as it is good for games, otherwise, a good TN;

- does not need to have HDMI input. Just DVI;


The LG I currently have is a great monitor and has lasted until now 4 years; my previous monitor is an LG Flatron LCD 575LM, 15 inch, bought in December 2001 (10 years old this year!), which is still working perfectly. Needless to say, I want a good quality monitor with good components. It does not need to have all the bells and whistles like I stated above, but it must do the basics right and be well built. If that means getting a 24 inch instead of a 27 inch for the price, I'm ok with it.

Thanks in advance!
