Samsung 24"-26" [NO BUDGET =)]

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Well i'm looking for a new monitor for gaming mostly. There's such a variety i'm not sure which to go with. I know for a fact i want a Samsung 24"-26", although if there are other brands within that size range that have really good performance when gaming then by all means please mention it. I just like the look of Samsungs though.

I'm looking mainly for 1920 x 1200 resolution, though i can do with 1080 if the specs of the monitor itself is like "wow". I mention specs, i'm looking for monitors that suit gaming... i dont care about viewing angles, i'm not going to be flying around my room. I'll be looking straight ahead at all times. I don't want anything with too high response time, and has lots of colours so that the blacks are truely black but still detailed. Also i don't want any ghosting at all, i've had experience with a friends 30" IPS screen. I think it had response time of 7? or 9? can't remember from when i looked it up but i noticed ghosting while playing mw2 on his xbox. Didnt occur all the time, but i'd rather not see it at all.

so just to verify

Samsung (or anything that you REALLY think is a sweet gaming monitor)
24"-26" Widescreen
1920x1200 (will go for 1080p if it is a well performing monitor)
Budget: None (Go wild with ideas, just don't make it so its got random cup holders or things that are excessive - i just want a quality monitor for gaming)

heres a new one, but its marginally more expensive

i myself am a fan of used/refurbished parts, but you dont have a budget so..

also i would recommend an hdtv over a standard computer monitor because they give you much better picture quality

I have T240HD, you could look at T260HD as well, very nice, actually listed as LCD TVs but have DVI inputs, as well as HDMI, component, vga, and ATSC tuner and remote.

Both 24 and 26in models are 1920x1200.

Thanks for the suggestions so far. I'd like more ideas please, i plan to get a whole selection then stick all of them on to one table with specs for each. Then narrow it down from there.

I will +rep to everyone who helps (already done for the aboves). But yeh, really would like more opinions on whats a great gaming Monitor for gaming specifically (just read what i'm looking for in OP), the more ideas to juggle with the better

I know this is for 24-26 in but dell has a very nice 27 inch monitor with 2560x1440 resolution. This monitor is absolutely gorgeous. It is though very pricey especially for a 27" monitor.

IT does have a 24" little brother the Dell u2410 which is also very very nice.

I actually have a U2410, they are really nice monitors, with a nice minimalist look, personally i prefer that to the samsung monitors, i tend to think they look great in the shop, but when you get them home they look a bit over the top, but i have very simple tastes.

Its pretty expensive, but has a decent 5ms response time, great colours, and i haven't noticed any ghosting yet when gaming (though im not the biggest fps player, so perhaps im not so sensitive about that sort of thing)

personally i give it 5/5, but there have been problems for some with a pink/green tint, though mine doesn't suffer from this so i cant comment.

WOW i actually haven't come across that 27" one and it looks really appealing. Just wanted to ask is 2560x1440 popular resolution. As in will be able to find easily available desktop wallpapers on the web for it, for example. I mean i know 30"ers are 2560 x 1600, i just dont want some odd resolution like how you can get some monitors at 1920 x 1050 .
But apart from that it does look quite apealing.

Also @ Brummie, yeh i kind of just went with Samsung to get the ball rolling - that and its minimalistic too. I've seen some monitors (HP i think) with triangular stands, or thick necked stands.
But i actually dont mind any 24"-26" Monitor whatever brand it is, as long as it follows the requirements for my gaming needs and also minimalistic. So yeah, it doesnt have to be Samsung

+rep to both

That resolution is 16:9 and not 16:10 which means with 1080p movies you won't get the black bars at the top and the bottom, but on games you will benefit from the larger resolution!

Trust me that monitor would be well worth the money.
