What monitor should I get? help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok right now I am using a samsung 941BW 1440x900 but I want to step up the resolution to 1680x1050. I think I want to stay samsung and I was looking at this monitor. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824001273 But I was wondering if $300 is a little spendy for this monitor. If you think so would you recommend something with similar specs, thanks.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824001268 < This is the current favorite of most people here on OCN. It's a very good monitor for the price, especially since it's under $300.

Yeah I know everybody loves the 2253BW but Somebody said the one I posted was better because the contrast ratio was 20,000:1 and the 2253BW only has 8000:1 ratio. I dont know what the contrast ratio is or does but you would think more is better?

The 20,000:1 contrast ratio is using dynamic contrast. They both have the same regular contrast ratio. That said, I'd try and look at both side-by-side and see which you like better. For the price, I'd get the LG L227WTG-PF over the Samsungs.
