Researched....now wanting thoughts

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have been looking for an upgrade to my 720p crappy 1280x1024 tv/monitor for a while, but I finally have settled on a decent option.

I am looking for a monitor that I will use 50/50 computer uses, and 360 gaming.

Here's the one I picked.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236099

If you have any thoughts, or another monitor that might be better (same price range) please post.

I like that monitor and ASUS does make good products, but I am not too particularly fond of how big the bezels is. Have you considered the monitor in my Sig Rig. Same price point, same technology (I think) and smaller bezels. Honestly you cannot go wrong with the one you chose.

Do you guys think it is worth it to buy the Extended Warranty?

Monitor looks good for specs. If you like the aesthetics of it then I say buy it. I dont think the warranty would be a worthwhile purchase. But thats just me
