The LG. It's as good as the Samsung, but physically smaller so it's easier to work with.

hmm so you really think that a 23" would be better for gaming too?

I don't see the point in a physically larger screen when it's the same resolution, honestly.

I have an acer 23"

I payed the same amount for my 23" as this 24" is priced.

I would get the samsung, simply because they have a good track record (for me) and the magicolor presets are simply stunning.

If I had the money back when I got my acer, I would have gotten the samsung.

Well, the LG is the same resolution as the Hanns G. Therefore smaller pixel pitch, and theoretically "finer" detail. The only one I WOULDN'T choose would be the Acer, as I've had issues with acer monitors in the past.

so you would prefer a 17" 1080p to a 22/24" 1080p? :/

personally, i would go for the samsung.

I would, actually. It gets irritating having a 23" TV/monitor combo that limits you to 1366x768... as great as it looks, I'll always prefer resolution over screen size, as long as it's over 20".

I wouldn't let that stop you in the future from buying another one. Acer doesn't make monitors and uses several manufacturers as does Dell,HP,etc. Two Acer monitors may have less in common than 1 monitor from Acer and 1 from Dell. They could very well be the same monitor with 2 different names stamped on the frame. When considering Acer a "brand", try to find out who actually made it before condemning a completely different model made by someone else. Just my .02.

With that said, I'd go with the 24" Samsung. Yes, the 23" has the same resolution, but overall viewing size is important as well as resolution.

So did you pick one up? I got the samsung, thanks to your thread for pointing this out for me
. As for monitor preference, I like the 24" because I won't be sitting all that close to the monitor. I am used to my current laptop monitor being very close to me, which is why I can stand 1680x1050 on a 15" screen.

I've got my monitor really close, so the 23" 2048x1152 is really nice for the extra desktop space (remember you only get more room on desktop with higher res, not screen size).

A large screen a little bit back can be very enjoyable also, it just depends on your preference.

I have a single 4890 pushing a 24" monitor and it handles every game I play at max graphics. Great card and is quiet in a P180 case.
