Which monitor should I purchase?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
It's come down to 3 monitors. I currently have a 5 year old 17" LCD at a 1024xsomething resolution and I'm upgrading to a 21.5" or 23.6" 1920x1080 resolution. My budget is $160, and these are the monitors I've opted to pick from, feel free to add a suggestion.

Asus 21.5"

Hanns G 23.6"

Samsung 21.5"

Any ideas on the best one would be nice. I like the appearance of the Samsung and Hanns G, the Asus looks a little plain. Thanks in advance.

Just picked up a 21.5'er to replace a dimming 19 inch works great.

I personally run an Asus 23.6 and it is gorgeous. It blows away the image color and clarity of my LG.

A buddy of mine scored a Hanns G from Costco and has good experiences with them.
