Which 24"+ monitor for gaming?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Up until recently I had my heart set on the Dell 2709w. I have been reading reviews about the Dell, and there is a noticeable input lag.

So I have decided to go with a 24" instead.
Which would be the best for gaming?

Well i have a 245BW, and i am very satisfied with it. Some people have recommended a 2443BW, that would have been my second choice.

Any Asus, Acer, or Samsung with a 2ms response time. The higher the contrast ratio, the better.

I got a Samsung T240. At first I wasn't satified with it because it was so pricey but now that I've had it for a while and adjusted all the settings and everything I'm very happy with it.

Samsung 245BW doesn't have 2ms response time or the best contrast ration but it has satisfied me 100% for gaming and high-def videos. It is gettin' a bit old now though...
At long last...

if yor on a budget, or if you want true cinema widescreen you can get a 22" 16:9 monitor which supports 1920@1080. Here is a link to one I recommend, it would be an advanced TN panel with 170x160 VA.
