Upgrading my monitor? Need your opinion

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking about selling my monitor for $250.
I kind of regret getting my monitor after realizing how it's not even that good. I bought it solely because of the 1ms sacrificing the contrast ratio.

I'm planning the play League of Legends and CS:GO. Maybe Diablo 3.

The following monitors I found on craigslist brand new.
U2312HM - $190
U2410 - $355

I'm convinced that an IPS panel will not give noticeable lag and it's the best choice. I'm trying to stick to 1 monitor. Maybe 2. My budget is less than $500. What do you guys think?

I'm also getting a 42" HDTV in my room in addition excluding the budget.

I currently have 3 of the dell U2312HM and couldn't be more pleased.

They have the lowest ghosting of nearly every monitor and the review can be found on TFT central if you are interested. They are seriously awesome. I did have to turn down the brightness however (Bit bright for my taste out of the box)

Both of the monitors you are looking at are awesome. I would go with the 2 X 23' if it were me. Though some prefer the 24" but it's down to budget really.

I've decided to get the U2311hm. I have no need for extra vertical pixels. Now I have to decide if I want 2 or not. I also need to figure out how to sell my monitor. tongue.gif

I'm also thinking about if I want to mount it or not.
