Solved Help in choosing a monitor? Tags: Light Ultrasharp Monitors Dell Graphics Last response: June 25, 2013 8:30 PM in Graphics & Displays Share beginnerbuild June 25, 2013 7:41:54 PM I'm looking for a 23 - 24 inch monitor for use in movie watching, some light coding and maybe some light gaming in the future. The Dell Ultrasharp line looked really interesting because I use a Dell Ultrasharp 2408WFP at my work. But these monitors bought new are much too expensive for me. I have found a local used Dell Ultrasharp 2407WFP for $200. And a Dell Ultrasharp 2408WFP on eBay for $230. My question is: would it be worth it to buy an used monitor such as the ones listed above or buy a new monitor that is TN panel? Price range would be up to $250, and I live in Canada. I'm open to all suggestions! More about : choosing monitor vinhn a b C Monitor June 25, 2013 7:46:44 PM Don't buy old monitors, it may have dead pixels or limited warrant.
