I just looked at the asus pro art and dont know how good it is yet but hardware canuks said it is great. the dell u2410 seems to be popular with photography and stuff like that once its calibrated. And if you have a really high budget 1000$> you could get a sweet 30 in or 27 in monitor.

I dont really know of any 120hz Ips monitors

I also hear that led is usually used as a gimmick because most screen manufacturers us edge lit which really sucks because the edges are way brighter in darks. But I hear if done right it can be nice(full backlit).
Yeah i meant 1920x1080 of course, I was too tired while creating this thread, sorry. I suppose 1920x1200 is ok too.

Basicly i am mostly looking for a monitor for movies, but should also be decent for gaming. I mostly play games like SC2, BC2, CoD.

Currently i am using samsung 24'' and i am not sure if i wasnt bothered by the downgrade to 22'', as i am so used to it.

Well for movies and gaming the dell u2311h seems to be a good bet. tft reviews placed it right under the dell u2410 and hp 2475w for movies. But this monitor seemed to excell in games over those 2 monitors. Its input lag and responsiveness were much better than the 24 in monitors. It also had the best contrast ratio which means in dark movies you will have the best blacks compared to the other monitors. And dont worry that it is 800:1 even though you see monitors that will have 1000000000000000000000000:1 contrast ratio because it is a marketing gimmick. But my favorite part about this monitor is that out of the box it had excellent calibration and like most people were going to be stuck with what it is out of the box because a coloromiter and its software is very expensive. So personally I would recommend this. It should be very similar to a 24 in that your used to and it is still 16:9 so you will not lose any Field of view which as you know is very important in games such as starcraft. It is also IPS so your picture quality will be excellent right out of the box. Hope this helps.

the rating system goes from 1 being the best to 5 being the worst.
