Bigger is better, in this case it won't really matter which you choose unless you care about pixel density, in which case you'll go for the 24" but if you want more real estate, the obvious choice is a 26".

This is completely true. If you want my 2 cents, I would personally go with the 24" just because while you would be sacrificing screen size, I like more pixels per inch since it makes the image look sharper. Not saying that's for everyone though.

The 24" because it's cheaper and will look sharper.

I just bought the sammy T240 yesterday because my sammy 2443bwx was showing some wierd colors, and it was the last day of the 30 day exchange/refund period from best buy, (extended to 30 days from 14 for xmas), and this is the monitor i wanted in the 1st palce, it was a bit more expensive, but still on sale for $50 off. When they tested it, it wouldn't even turn on! Wow...talk about a close call!

This thig is beautiful. It's full hdmi capable and even has an hdmi connector in the back, I called Samsung to ask if i should even bother with installing the software and drivers, and he said don't bother, because it's a plug and play monitor anyway.

Also of some interest, i had a 22" T220 that crapped out on me and he said they have been having software issue with other software, like adobe acrobat! So basically, it could clash with all or many adobe or similar programs we use, like the flash player. I also got me a dual link dvi-d cable to double bandwidth from my vcard for great video streaming.

24"...

IMO, after buying a 26" T260, I realized it was too big to use as a computer monitor... unless you sit 3-4 feet away from your screen... 24" is pretty much the largest you want to go with without making your eyes sore within 20 minutes...
