Gaming/Movie Monitor 23-24inch

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
What monitor is best for gaming and Blu Ray movies? I was looking into 120hz monitors but I read a post on here and they said those are bad for gaming unless you get a true 120hz monitor and those are the 3D ones. I have no plan or desire to do 3D movies or games so whats the best monitor out there? I would like to spend under 500 dollars. Both newegg and tigerdirect are having monitor sales so saving some change would be nice. Thanks!

Ah thanks for the input sorry I forgot to mention I'm looking for a monitor with an HDMI input. Speakers also don't matter because I'll buy some or use head phones.

No problem, sorry about that though.. I know that there is a new version of the monitor that is about the same but has HDMI in. I didn't get it however because it is a tad bit more expensive and I don't need HDMI so I am not sure exactly what it is like... I can't seem to find the link to it right now but when I find it I will post it.

So I've decided to get a monitor for gaming/photoshop then use my TV for Blu Ray movies. So should I get a normal monitor or a better 120hz monitor? These are the two monitors I'm looking at.

or

there were a few HP's that people said to look at but I don't remember which ones right now.

Nah dont get LED I have a PX2370 LED and although the picture quality is good and great for gaming (2ms TN panel) LED backlighting has a tendency to produce a blue hue with dark scenes in movies.

I have a Samsung 2333T sitting next to it and it blows the PX2370 away for movie picture quality, unfortunately its not really fast enough to recommend for gaming. (5ms PVA panel).

It's not an easy task finding a PC LCD with both excellent gaming & movie quality lol, Good luck.
