Help picking 24" monitor

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
I been thinking for a little while about buying a 22" lcd & I was going to get the Samsung 226BW since everyone said it was so great but now its successor is out, the 2253bw & I was going to get that but I see they only support resolutions as high as 1680x1050 & I wanted to go a little higher than that. Any recommendations on a 24" monitor thats as good as the 22" 2253bw? I'm already spending alot to get a 24" so hopefully you guys wont recommend the most expensive one

Thanks to all!

The Samsung 245BW is a nice monitor.
It can do 1920x1200, and has a 5ms response time.

Here's a pretty good one: 2ms response time and your 1920x1200

hope that helps

I can vouch for the ACER P241-WAID.. It's TN, sure, but it rocks IMO..

Here is the P243 which I believe replaces the 241, by model # only..

Just bought a Gateway FHD2400. I couldn't be happier.

It's a glossy TN panel with high quality electronics and features inside.

Here is a good review of it.

I have the LG L246pn, very nice monitor.

My advice is when picking a monitor, don't just look at the contrast ratio or the response time.

TN panel (the lowest grade) usually have a fast response time, but lack in viewing angle and color depth and quality.
But the currently glossy screen does help a little.

I would recommend at least a P-MVA panel, or S-MVA panel. It sports a true 178 degree viewing angle.

If you have the money, go with a S-IPS panel...the dell ultra sharp has it, but expensive.

Choose between Samsung or Dell.(S-PVA)
This is it.

If you play lots of FPS games, lower ms'd be better.
Grab a cheap TN glass to see, but you will only be able to see through from certain angle.

I personally don't care too much about viewing angles, I like to sit right in front of the monitor at all times. For those who complain of poor angles, why? (honestly inquiring, not poking fun) Do you do a lot of work standing up? Or maybe in a dual monitor setup poor viewing angles could get annoying? -Just trying to get a feel as to where you are coming from.

I do move around sometimes and lean back to watch tv while i'm on the comp but not while gaming. On newegg how can you tell what kind of panel the monitor is?

Either through some research or matching the specs to the panel.
