Recommend me a 24" or greater monitor

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Looking for the best lcd for gaming that => 24".
Things that are important to me:
1. Response time (can game on it)
2. Quality (i.e. sold somewhere where the monitor got good reviews)
3. Contrast ratio (good blacks and whites)
4. Has no bleeding in games.

Would prefer responses from people who actually have the lcd they're recommending

I personally would recommend the new Dell 24". It has a good response time of 6ms, good contrast ratio 3000:1 and I have never seen bleeding or any actually annoying flaws with the quality of Dell monitors. I own two 20" dells and I am getting a 24" at the end of the month because I am going to have it double as an HD TV for my PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii.

Thanks. Would appreciate an update when you test the monitor out

I did look at the new Samsung, the contrast ratio is dynamic meaning it can change.

I have a friend with the Dell 2407 the screen is very nice and its specs make it a good gaming screen. The new 2408 from Dell blows the 2407 out the water so ill be jumping on the bandwagon myself. The new 3008 30 incher from Dell is also another killer pic because the response times and increased performance have made it a viable large gaming screen only if you have 2k to shell out.
