Help me choose a new monitor

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I know most of the focus on this section of OCN is on higher end monitors, but at that moment that's just not gonna happen for me. I looked at the recommended monitor thread but in the 23-24 inch category all there was were monitors out of my price range. My max budget is a strict $200 US.

I don't do any video or photo editing but I would like a monitor that has decent colors. I've split it between 2 monitors

LED http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236112
IPS http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236288

I generally just browse the web and game. Any other monitor can be suggested these are just the two I sort of

LED just refers to backlight. It means nothing about the panel and some people think CCFL is better than LED in reference to backlight bleed.

Gaming (FPS /speed like 120Hz in particular) and color accuracy are opposites.

The IPS one seems like a cheaper version of the U2312HM from Dell. It's actually e-IPS (not a true IPS).

P.S. it's also what you play and what preferences you have, if you prefer glossy to anti-glare/matte then something like the Dell S2340M or S2440L might be good for you http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824260109 , http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824260106

I'm well aware of the fact that LED refers to the backlight used, that the ASUS IPS is an e-IPS and that gaming in color accuracy kind of oppose each other, especially on 120Hz panels. The reason I to chose put the IPS is because I've been under the impression that you should generally stay away from TN due to poor viewing angles and color reproduction. I'm coming off an HDTV so I wanted to makes sure I didn't lose any color because while the tv lacks some clarity (1366x768 panel upscaled somehow to 1080p) it does colors very well.

But I think I've actually decided on the Asus VG23AH. It looks like it has a good combo of what I want. Good colors, good response times, good stand, and a decent AG coating. It's a little more then I was willing to spend but I want what I want and if I have to pay a little more to get it then so be it.

The forum post you linked on the vs239h-p actually lead me to it, so thank you
