post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Hello people,

Advanced sorry if this thread has been posted before frown.gif

I was wondering which, LCD or LED, would be better for me.
I'm a gamer, movie watcher and multi-window user.
also would you guys be able to give me some suggestions.
I have about 47cm height and think the max I go is 24".
I need a HDMI for my PS3 and speakers.

Thank You drunken.gif

fyi led monitors are lcd.. lcd is the display.. Its led back lit instead of a fluorescent tube.

And led would be better uses less power, longer life and stay exact brightness from day 1 to the day they go. fluorescent tubes will dim when they start to go..

Another bonus with led is crazy thin monitirs. TV same deal as computer monitors

Not really lol. LED monitors are, most of the time, more 'crisp' looking than LCD.

You may pay more upfront in price.

Nope. Contrast ratio is really based on the LCD panel. LED have more inaccurate colors.

Such a generalized statement that is not often true.

Thank you learning heaps.
LEDs have more inaccurate colors. I'm guessning thats not good for movies and games ?
tryagainplss: I'd love to have vibrant colours and buy an ISP but unfortunatly it's out of range frown.gif
I was looking at the BenQ-GL2430HM:
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/BenQ-GL2430HM-24-Full-HD-HDMI-Wide-LED-Monitor-Speaker-/270672960056?pt=AU_comp_monitor&hash=item3f055d9a38

it's seems reasonable for the price and inputs.
Any Suggestions ?

LEDs last much longer and use less electricity.
