i'm looking between these and may be similar to your taste since you like that LG
I've heard bad ghosting about that lg, bad back light bleed about the asus, bad lag and ag coating on the dells, bad this and bad that. none of them are perfect...even the koreans...everyone has an opinion
Ya know, if there's one brand I absolutely highly dislike it's ASUS. Their customer service hung up on me while I was trying to resolve a motherboard issue. I did eventually buy another ASUS product, but they have a long way to go to fix their rep as far as I'm concerned.
