I think the Samsung (based on the specs) is the better of the two.

Unfortunately, I can't find one for the Acer.

They look pretty much equal, but I didnt see the rated response rate for the Samsung.

Since everything is about the same as far as NAtive Res, Dot Pitch, and Constrast Ratio then go with the one with the lowest response time.

If the Samsung as a 4ms or 8ms response rate then go with which ever is cheaper. Haven't heard many bad things about the Acer but I know they aren't the highest of quality of LCDs

the response time on both is 2ms, and the price difference is only 0,50 usd.
samsung is pretty much known for making quality screens, right?
