I liked the 236H but I'm looking for at least 24"

Newbie2009, appreciate the direct comparison. What 26" ASUS do you have?

Any opinions on the last 2 I linked? Anyone have experience with them?

I picked up the VE278Q a while back and have been very satisfied with it so far. You mentioned the only difference I'm aware of, as VE276Q owners that have upgraded stated the backlighting was the only thing changed.

The downside? Size wise, your only upgrades from there are TVs at the same resolution or IPS panels for color accuracy and resolution improvements. Both of which come with a steep price increase.

@PandaAttack: thanks for the verification. I'm liking the look of it and will go check it out in store sometime this weekend. Unfortunately my Microcenter only has this one and not a 276Q to compare. Is the extra $30 worth it for LED?

I think I've decided on the VE278Q assuming my tax return is nice if it isn't I'll still get it just later.

Question for you all: I have a Wii and an XBox 360. How could I connect those to this monitor? The xbox is one of the old ones without HDMI, both consoles just have the component cables (red-white-yellow for the Wii, the extra HD ones for the Xbox). Are converters expensive?

If anyone knows a comparable monitor to the above that also has component inputs, I'd appreciate that too

I have a similar model 360 lacking hdmi, so I went out and picked up one of those microsoft VGA cables to connect it to my monitor. Not sure how you'd connect the Wii though.
