Get that Hyundai 240D model. It's got HDMI and a decent response time and contract ration.

I have decided to go with the V2400W anyway after reading a review of that and the W240D. I'll post the links here for the reviews just in case someone is wondering about the same monitors.

Oh, wow. I'd never seen that BenQ before. It's really nice. Good choice.

Samsung is the way to go, the 2493HM just released is awesome if you can afford its slightly higher price tag (£325 +shipping here in the UK)

If not then the 254bw from samsung, very good monitor.

Out of that list then DEFINATELY THE BENQ, best monitors along with samsung, the v2400w is awesome.

Also I want a monitor that is able to display 1080 and 4:3 image with correct aspect ratio, not stretching the image or whatever.
The samsung 2493HM is on sale at Newegg for $429.

how about a substancially cheaper 22" and a GFX upgrade or something like that?

The price premium you pay for an extra 2" if screen is just dumb, IMO.

Get the LG, I've been through god knows how many 24" monitors and none of them have satisfied me as much as the LG has. The only other monitor that I thought was better was the 24"dell, The blacks were simply amazing. The LG is a non-TN panel, it is the fastest P-MVA panel ever made. Which means it is great for gaming and pretty good for movies, although nothing beats a CRT or Plasma for movies . Any who, Definitely go with the LG L246WP-BN, You wont regret it.


EDIT: I just noticed that you are looking at the LG L246WH-BN, It is a S-ips panel, which is still very nice. I recommend it .

Why should I need a GFX upgrade, what's wrong with my 9800 Pro? No seriously, I will be buying a whole new system, the screen is just part of that.
