Good 20" or under gaming monitor

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
All, I’m looking for a good gaming monitor that’s 20 inches or smaller with a native 720p resolution. Can someone suggest one? I’m currently looking at the 2007FP and wondering how the colors/brightness are for gaming? Asking because my U2211H is waaay too dark for gaming.

Many thanks

The dell XX07's have terrible and un even backlighting. ( not to mention they are over 5 years old and the CFL lights are worn out usually by now )

Why do you need such a small and low rez monitor?

as far as Im aware, most off the shelf monitors start at 20" or so and are a 1050p

It's not exactly what you're asking for, but I happened to pick up a HP 2011xi from staples about 6 months ago for ~80 bucks, and its been a pretty fantastic monitor so far, not to mention the fact that it is IPS. It has a resolution of 1600x900 though, which is not what you were looking for. It has the best picture I've seen at the given price range and resolution.
