Display comparison - narrowed it down, help me choose!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Alright, I've narrowed down my monitor choices significantly and was wondering if you could help tell me the pros and cons of each. I am having difficulties finding much information about the majority I have chosen.

Samsung 2693HM (perfect size!)
HP 2408h
BenQ FP241VW (or FP241W)
BenQ G2400WD (one person said the picture quality was poor, can't find much info though).

3 out of 4 are pretty much the same price with the G2400WD being the cheapest. I've only seen the Samsung and HP in person, I'm leaning towards the Samsung but lack of info/reviews makes me wary.

Also considering waiting for the new 1080P Acer but not sure, Acer doesn't seem to be all that great. Or the new Dell 24" but that's longer than I'd like to wait.

Uses: Gaming (both PC and PS3) and HD movies and TV. Prefer a good picture quality with good blacks. Low response time a must for gaming. And viewing angles are semi important for TV/movie use.

all i can say is I love my samsung monitor... best one I've ever owned. And btw... the benq's do look kinda crappy imo. The benq's are actually sold at best buy

Dangit, I hate my state. They didn't have them at the BB here.

The reason I was considering the 2 BenQ's were because they aren't TN panels but I think the Samsung is though it's angles were fine so I don't know. I know the HP is but the angles were fine for me on that one too. Noob here just trying to get more info.
