Need Help In Choosing A 23-24" Monitor

Sorry if my English isn't very good, it's not my native language.
I'm looking for a 23-24" 1920x1080 monitor that will be good for gaming but also for my everyday use (which includes programming for long hours).
So far I found the Dell u2312hm and the Samsung s23a700d. The Samsung should be better for gaming but it is a glossy screen and I'm afraid it will cause me eystrain (I spend a lot of time on my computer).
Will the glossy panel be a problem if there isn't any direct light on the screen (the only source of light in the room is on the ceiling)?
Which monitor should I pick - the u2312hm or the s23a700d?

I recently just upgraded from a Samsung 21.5" 1080p monitor to a 24" Dell Ultrasharp U2412M 1920x1200 display. The improvement is dramatic. If you can stretch your budget to get a 1920x1200 display over a regular 1080 display I would recommend it. The extra height does make a very positive difference in my opinion, especially if you are coding. It's crystal clear too and has superb colour reproduction. I'm not sure about the light situation between glossy and non-glossy as I've only ever used matte displays.
Having owned both brands, I would choose a Dell over a Samsung as I'm very happy with my current display.

Thanks for your reply!
I think I prefer a 16:9 resolution because more games support it.
The s23a700d is more appealing to me because of the 120Hz, 2ms response time and 3D. If I were convinced that the glossy panel was not an issue I would probably go with the Samsung.
I'm waiting to hear the opinion of someone who uses a glossy screen (or maybe someone that owns the s23a700d).




Don't...

Does anyone use a glossy screen or the Samsung s23a700d?
Is the Samsung a good screen and do you think the glossy panel might cause me eyestrain after staring it for long periods of time (assuming the only source of light in the room is on the ceiling)?

Get the Samsung s23a700d as i have Samsung monitors in my Internet Shop like Samsung S23B300B, Samsung LS22B310..

I'm From Phil majority of PH people use to have Samsung products which there vessels are intact and good.

If you got a big budget Try ASUS MX279H 27 its none glossy but not best for gaming. but i prefer Samsung for low budget.

Did you experience eyestrain from using the glossy Samsung monitors for long periods of time?

I'm waiting to hear the opinion of someone who uses a glossy screen. I really want to get the s23a700d but I'm worried that staring at the glossy screen for a long time will cause eyestrain.
