BEST 22" LCD is?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I've seen ALOT about the Samsung 226BW. But I could have sworn I saw something from LG that was even better a few weeks ago. I cannot remember. If there is a price limit of $400.00 and I do not want to go over 22" what is the BEST LCD hands down?

hmmm, I think the contrast ratio on the LG is alot better right? 3000:1 as opposed to 1000:1. BUT the Samsung has alot better response time I believe.

The Samsung 226BW is a 3000:1 Dymanic Contrast Ratio.

Also, the human eye cant see the difference in the response time under 8ms anyway.

Many ppl misinterpret the contrast ratio of the Samsung, it's really a 1000:1 display, the quoted 3000:1 is driven via software that's implemented. Still probably the best screen on the market for the money.

Anything higher than 1000:1 is Dymanic Contrast Ratio.

The Samsung is my pick.

What about that Acer Ferrari LCD or is that just overhyped?

I have the LG226 model and I'm quite happy with it. I can see mild light bleeding from the top and bottom of the screen edges when the screen has a dark color like black or grey, no other issues.
I believe the Samsung 226 and the LG226 are basically the same technology and are very similar except for the frames and nametags. Get whatever is cheaper.
Stay away from Viewsonic. Their buttons hang up, or at least mine did. Returned it and went to LG. peace
