21.5 inch gaming monitor

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I looked and searched on the websites of computer companies in the country I am currently in, and I've found several monitors :

- Samsung SyncMaster LED BX2250
- Samsung SyncMaster LED B2230HN
- ASUS LCD VE228H
- Dell UltraSharp U2211H

Which of those 4 should I pick ? Recommendations are still welcomed but I can't guarantee I'd find it here.

Dell U2211h

NO competition here.

It will absolutely make ANY OTHER one of those monitors look like trash. If you choose something else than the dell, you made a bad choice. This is because the dell is an IPS panel (GOOD) and the others are TN panels (VERY BAD)

I usually stay away from making generalizations about panel types but,

I am going to have to agree with this. I just bought a UltraSharp and after comparing it to my Samsung LCDs, I finally found out what I had been missing. Comparatively, images are just more lively and it makes the color on my Samsung look washed. The viewing angles are also much better, although this isn't a huge deal for me.

I even liked the PQ on my Samsung prior to the purchase.

I am selling my Samsung LCDs on CL so I can buy another one later.

I know about the panel technology and I also know that IPS is good. BUT I've heard the U2211H had some leakage problems. I hope I'm wrong. And btw Zant +1 rep for you. That's the answer who truly matches the OP's query.

Samsung is normally over-priced, while most Asus panels are above average and their price about average. I love my Dell u2211h and have had no problems with it, or when I ran them in Eyefinity. Normally you can grab them at $229 - $239 while they are on sale (weekly sales each month normally).

Ninja edit: The "leaking" or bleeding was on the u2311h/u2410h models and from any review I've seen, I have not noticed them mentioning bleeding/leaking. I could be mistaken of course, but I personally don't have it on my monitor, nor have read anyone on here mentioning it.

Where I live, it costs 264 dollars. Not that much of a difference though. I'm gonna settle with this one. Thanks for the contribution.

If you are talking about backlight bleeding, there is a review written here that mentions it.

I dont have it on my monitor, and I have rarely heard of people here complaining about bleeding.

Ya, I never came across any reviews stating the u2211h had problems with the backlight bleeding, which is why I purchased that over the u2311h. Interesting though, thanks.
