Pardon me if this has been answered, I am new and did a bit of searching but couldn't come up with anything. My question is whether i should purchase
Asus VS248H-P http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... , for ~$140 open box from newegg
Dell UltraSharp u2412m http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... , for ~$450 for TWO monitors from someone posting on craigslist.
I do plan to do eyefinity/nvidia surround down the road, so I am looking for a good quality monitor and one that will last. Which would be the better buy in terms of overall monitor quality (for gaming, and Internet/office use), and which would be the better buy for the $
Thank you for your time!
U2412m is an IPS monitor
VS248H is TN ... and a 60 hz TN at that
Quality is going to be miles better on the Dell. It is also going to be a bit slower than the Asus with regard to response times. Unless you are a hardcore gamer who has to have the fastest response time, then go for the Dell. It's miles ahead of the Asus.
