uh... how good do you want the image quaity? LED backlit is a complete gimmick. cathode backlighting is BRIGHTER than LED and BETTER in ALL application aside mobile use to save battery. in plane switching = more expensive but much better color accuracy than twisted nematic displays, cheap plasma > cheap lcd imo for this reason. TN have better refresh rates in general, but the new S-IPS technology is always 6ms or less now which is more than good enough for anti ghosting. TN are said to have better contrast ratio's, but contrast ratio's are really not that important. IPS monitors are BETTER because the sub pixel array is vertical instead of TN's horizontal which both cause bad viewing angles as well as use adjacent sub pixels to fill in falsely for colors, which will literally smear colors across the screen. each TN panel sub pixel liquid crystal can block 192 shades of light, yielding 7.07 million colors whereas an IPS sub pixel can block 256 shades of light each, yielding 16.7 million REAL colors, UN SMEARED with PERFECT viewing angles.

this being said, me having watched a 22gig blu ray of many different films on my 24 inch S-IPS gateway, it makes in both my video and audio setup, the movie theaters look like complete crap.

basically, i always recommend an IPS display first to ANYONE...but since the average idiot A: can't tell the difference, especially with gaming and moving picture, B: doesn't want to spend that much, C: will never do anything like professional photo editing D:will not understand my breakdown of why IPS is better or anything iv'e said in the past 5 minutes at all.... yeah....

you're going to end up getting a TN panel and not care about real quality tongue.gif

How about something like this 24" Samsung? I have a similar 23" that I use for XBox 360 gaming and as a monitor for my dedicated folding rig. It could serve your needs well unless you are looking for something significantly larger.

the 5ms is bad for gaming isnt it

He's going to be playing XBox 360, scro, not creating color-perfect digital jewelery advertisements. And I wasn't even recommending it to you.

i was reffering to image quality in collor accuracy more than how many pixels the screen has. iv'e seen a 720P hitachi plasma tv that would rape any new LED backlit crap tv today. my friend's 52 inch runco 1680x1050 plasma rapes any "LED" 240 htz millions of crap contrast ratio i see in stores.

in color accuracy, my little 24 inch S-IPS > those 240 htz OMG OMG 3D tv's. it's all marketing.

to each their own, but you might want to know what you buy is and how it works, before you really do buy it. panel technology is the first thing you should look at. if you are fine with crappy looking colors, go for a cheap crappy TN panel monitor that suites your resolution needs, if color accuracy actually matters, you might want to look into it a bit further, i'll leave it at that.

you'd be suprised how many friends that go in my room and end up watchign a blu ray on this little 24 inch screen regret buying their crappy twisted nematic monitors. this is why i give him the information as to why in plane switching is better, the downfalls of both, any my anecdotal opinion. it's his choice, but you should look at more than what the contrast ratio and screen resolution is on the display you buy, and you should NEVER buy a display without looking at it, IN PERSON. everyone's eyes are different. one monitor to one person can look completely different to another person. this is the best advice i can give.
