Best 1080p monitor on Newegg

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
$200 or less. Don't know all that much about monitor brands and quality, and I know that most specs above the resolution/refresh rate on consumer screens are more or less falsified and exaggerated. So what's a good 1080p screen in that price range, 21-23"?

Features in order of importance:
1. Clarity
2. Contrast ratio
3. Response time

do you have a microcenter nearby?

I've seen a lot of people recommending this lately.

I have a similar monitor and I love it, though I'm not really a monitor aficionado.

Can't go wrong with the Asus VH and VW line. Either this 23.6" or this 21.5" , depending on size. They also have 16:10 ratio monitors for similar prices. I own various sizes for my different computers, very cheap and good quality for a TN.

The Asus VE monitors have issues with ghosting. Not sure if it's true or not, just what I've read and what one of my friends claims.

Edit: Even the newegg reviews have tons of people saying it has noticeable ghosting compared to other 5ms monitors (and it's supposedly a 2ms response time monitor). thinking.gif

The one in the link is a VH, not a VE. wink.gif

The whole 2 and 5 ms response is deceive... in many cases those specs are the same dependent on which manner the advertise the specification.
A typical 5ms is also = to a 2ms (GTG) from what I gather... but I may be corrected.
