yet another "help me find a monitor" thread

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Right now i am using a Hanns-g HW191D: 19 inches, 1440x900. I want a 1920x1080 monitor.

Requirements:
-LED
-23''+
-no speakers (to make it lighter)
-small bezel
-HDMI or DVI
-under $200

I am a college student so I don't really have much cash to throw around. I am a photographer and a video gamer, so response time and picture quality is a must, that is why I am willing to spend a bit more. I was thinking about ASUS displays, since I know the quality will be pretty good.

Thoughts?

edit - looks like it has built in speakers, but who cares...you're not going to find a better deal than that.
