Which of these two monitors should I get?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I need a new monitor, and these are the two I am looking at. They are both in stock locally, but I can't decide for the life of me. I do quite a lot of photo editing and graphics related stuff with my PC, as well as gaming, internet, etc. Which of these two should I go with?

I'm leaning towards the ASUS right now...not sure if I would really benefit from 120Hz much anyway since I don't play many multiplayer games. I don't know...what would you guys recommend?

If you are doing photo editing, the I would go with the asus as IPS is good for that. The negatives of the Benq is that it doesn`t have displayport, not too much of a negative. Are you planning on using 3D soon. Some people say they can notice smoother gameplay with120Hz and some don`t.

I'm really not huge on the 3D at the moment, but then again, I've never really tried it. I wouldn't be able to afford the 3D Vision kit for quite some time anyway though.

Another thing I have noticed is that the BenQ only has a 1 year warranty, while the ASUS has a 3 year.
