The only draw back to it is it is only 22" and I would really prefer something larger to give great games more of an epic fell. My 40" Samsung LCD/LED makes games like Just cause 2 look great and feel big, but the performance of the TV as a gaming monitor is just lacking with slow response and lag even in game mode.
there are just too many different ones to chose from and each has something slightly different. Some have really good "this" and poor "that". These companies seem to refuse to produce a good all around monitor that will tackle anything you throw at it. I am sure they can but this is a way for them to suck more money of the consumer. Oh, you want really good color quality then buy this one but if you want really good gaming, buy this one. Oh, you need both? Then you better buy both. Hey we are in business to serve our customers needs
I just want a monitor that has everything! is that too much to ask?lol
If you want it all, get the monitor I have (NEC MultiSync 20WGX2) from someone, or be willing to spend over a grand. There isn't any suitable upgrade for my monitor at the moment.. and its been 4-5 years. I don't see monitors that have a Gloss screen and an IPS panel together (everything is matte~ Opticlear is sexy). 20 inches doesn't seem big anymore, as my friend all have those cheap TN panels boosting 16:9 HD or 16:10. They don't really care bout quality as much as the size. I want the same monitor I have now, but in a bigger size.. hehe might be too much to ask.
The Dell U2311, and the U2410 look very good, but I'm just not satisfied enough. The HP ZR24W looks good too, but again, there are problems. I will just keep waiting until something awesome comes up, or eventually have the money to get the U2410. (I do game, but meh.. I'd pick quality over response time~ I can always get another monitor for gaming, but there isn't anything for the best of both worlds... )
The LG definitely looks very intriguing, and it is interpolated (so no reason for a display port).
I was looking at the LG 2370 as well, but until an expert review comes out, I will just have to sit back and wait. Thanks for all the information and advice guys.
NEC Monitors are not targeted at consumers anymore, mostly professional and business (which is sad). I can't find an NEC Retailer at a local computer shop since 2008 (Fry's Electronics for example).
I always like the NEC monitors, owned a 1333LCD, Multisync 70GX2 and of course my Multisync 20WGX2.
