New monitors, Dell U2312HM or something else?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I need to buy a pair of new monitors. Primary use will be web dev, homework, some graphics, surfing, and gaming. I don't want to go any bigger than 23" and I need 1920 x 1080 minimum. The majority of the games I play are single player (Fallout 3, Fallout: NV, etc.), so I'm not incredibly concerned about ghosting. Is there a better option for the money? I can get the Dell U2312HM for $190 shipped, two for $380.

I've seen cheap LG ips monitors at Ebay and sometimes Amazon and the Egg, check them out.

I'd go ahead with your purchase. Those are nice monitors and you have a great price on them. The only thing I'd suggest being that you do web dev work would be a 1920x1200 monitor but you'd have to stretch to a 24".

I would spend some extra cash and get the Asus pa248q Its $310 in newegg and its each monitor is pre-calibrated for your graphical needs. Also its 1920x1200 and 24" and has a onscreen grid with cm or inches and many more "cut outs" like letters and cards.

I'll likely end up having one monitor in portrait mode for my editor, so 1920 x 1200 isn't a huge deal. Thanks for your input! thumb.gif

I looked at those, but I can't justify almost double the cost. I would sooner get a third monitor.

ASUS VS24AH-P=230$ 1920x1200 AH-IPS. [H]ard Forum Thread

Newer AH-IPS panels have less grainy matte coatings vs. the very grainy matte coatings e-IPS use as well as higher LED PWM Dimming frequencies. Read more about LED PWM Dimming here

No problem, ASUS has a similar Pro Business series in the sub $200 range right now in newegg the PB238Q is on sale for $209.99 (assuming you'll buy it near this date ), the reason i think this is the monitor for you is because I believe this "Quick fit"-

QUICKFIT VIRTUAL SCALE
The ASUS-exclusive QuickFit built in the monitor provides real-size document, photo, and grid mode on top of the operating windows on the screen. It can be activated via a hotkey on monitor and used as a guide to accurately view and edit photos.


Video about Quick Fit


Just Skip to 1:04 (keep in mind this is the PA not the PB, but still very similar

It will be very useful for your Graphical needs, it also has an IPS panel(dont know what type) and it has the most generous amount of Connections on a monitor-
DisplayPort
VGA
DVI
HDMI and Usb

And something good for your Gaming needs it doesnt have a 8m/s response time but a 6m/s response time
AND... best of all with a $20 mail in rebate it will be close to the U2312HM price just with out the shipping. thumb.gif
