post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, i have used BX2231 for around 7 month (I bought it around $255)

this is the monitor >>> link

What I want to ask is... it is a good idea to upgrade it to 23.6 inch for around $240??? can I notice the difference???

I want to upgrade to chimei 24LH (23.6"), sorry I can only to find the link for 23" in their website >>> link for 23" not 24" (response time is wrong, it is 2ms, confirmed by Chimei rep in my country)

The only difference you will see is stuff will be bigger on screen, as the resolutions are the same. (You've the same amount of pixels, but each pixel is bigger because the physical screen size is bigger).

Of course there will/may be some differences in color reproduction, contrast ratio's etc, but that's a whole new story

oh, ok thanks

so it is the right choice to upgrade it, because in my screen now, the text is too small and it makes my eyes hurt if I stay too long in front of monitor, I need to zoom the text (distance from the monitor to my eyes is around 60-70 cm)

And I'm once thinking to downgrade it to 20" (1600x900), hahaha... silly me, I use my computer to read manga and browsing alot while downloading and still do gaming once in a while

Sure, 23 inch is quite a sweet spot for 1920x1080 IMHO
