I Have an LG Flatron W2453V and it works flawlessly....2ms response 1920x1080, 50,000:1, HDMI connector, perfect for gaming, I picked mine up on sale at future shop in Canada, $300 after tax.

thanks guys! my heart is really set on the Dell sp2309w! but then i read about the Dell U2410 and it kinda put me into 2 minds about my purchase.
i've seen the Samsung, and really loved the display. The Dells higher resolution and Features kinda edges it for me... im sOOOOOOOOOOOO confused! spoilt for choice.. i just need somebody to say.. "THAT IS BETTER THAN THAT BECAUSE...!!" lol

why would you go with the flatron?
post #7 of 33
Probably more brand preference than anything else but it is a decent LED backlit 27" monitor.

You really dont need a U2410 if you will only be watching HD movies from your computer. The resolution on the U2410 is 1920x1200. HD format is 1920x1080. I would go with one of the cheaper TN panels maybe 27" based on your needs.
