Help me choose my monitor !

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, I have to admit I'm utterly confused at this point. I'm about to buy my new PC that I'll be using for gaming, browsing, A/V editing and movie watching. I've been browsing tons of reviews and still I can't seem to decide. So I'm asking for your help. I need a monitor with the following characteristics:

1-Min 22 max 23.6 inches
2-Led backlight
3-Full HD
4-Vesa mount
5-Speakers integrated (or recommend me an affordable soundbar I can attach to the display)
6-max 200€

I'm really looking forward for your advice. Bye.

Re: Display Monitor

First thing we can do, think about it. Price, Brand & Quality.

200€?

My first option is HD Widescreen LED TV
2nd option, Touchscreen LED Monitor 22"
3rd option, Value deals. It depends on location where they live.

I think I've fully explained my needs in the first post. I'm looking for some advice on brands and models and not the type of display I need.

The asus VS and VE series monitors should do the trick fine budget and requirement wise, however, be aware that a lot of them have an issue with overdrive (auras of objects following them a frame or so behind the actual image). This is only really noticeable when you drag windows around on the desktop and look for the effect.

It's possible to disable, but some models (I have no confirmation on which exact models) only do that by pressing a certain button while powering up, so if you do shut down your monitor often, it's something worth considering.
But I doubt most people could be bothered by the overdrive.


Something along the lines of

(Though second recommendation doesn't have built in speakers)

Or any other monitor from those series. Just make sure to check the stats on them to make sure they are VESA, and have 1920x1080. Not all of them do. Also some are glossy, some matte. It's there on the details page too. Also whether or not they have speakers, even though I'd find it ultimely better to just get cheap-o headphones or something, monitor speakers are generally terrible.



The reason I recommend asus is because it's a good lower end brand in the monitor industry. Their displays are quite good compared to the competitors in terms of IQ, reliability, and having low input lag, with a couple of exceptions.

What about the Iiyama Prolite 2274hds ? I know integrated speakers don't sound so good but they'll surely sound better than my laptop's. Anyway I need integrated speakers or as I've said an affordable soundbar I can attach such as Logitech Z305 because I'll mount the monitor on a jointed desk arm and I don't want to move speakers everytime I'll be watching a movie on the couch. And I don't want to talk about my lovely cats and my last two external hard disks...
