Papa Needs a New Monitor!

Alright so blackfriday deals are here, and im in the market for a new monitor.

So far iv narrowed it down to these four, in no particular order:

So far the acer pops out the most for me since it has a glossy screen, from personal experience the colors seem stand out a lot more on gloss rather than matte.

Ideas? Suggestions? I was shooting for a 1900x1200 screen to get on black friday but with my budget of ~$200 it doesnt look like it will happen.

Because it's a Samsung?
Nah, but really, they're all the same resolution and panel type, so just go with the Acer as it's the cheapest.

Might as well go with the Acer and hope you don't have dead pixels. Mine is the H233H and it works pretty well as a monitor. Pretty bright colors and 3 year warranty. It seems that Acer you linked has only a 1 year warranty. Don't know about the other monitors.

+1 for the Samsung.

Anything under 24" feels/looks small with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Plus they have great customer service if needed.

I'd go with the samsung.... I used to have an acer for dual monitors next to my samsung and the quality of the samsung was far better than the acers...

Samsung. I own three, no dead pixels or other problems.

Also have a sammy home theater that quit working a week after the warranty was up. Customer service: "Awww that's lame. Why don't we RMA that for you anyway?!" The entire phone call took about 5 minutes.

Edit: Dang, I are slow typer/thinker. Enjoy your new toy! This is going to be a huge upgrade for you.

lol... you actually have them in order of price low to high...

My vote is for the ACER. its 10 bucks cheaper, and I own all Acer's. 0 dead pixels in 3 screens!
