What's your budget? There are better monitors from ASUS around the £200 mark if you can afford that. If not, that Iiyama or the XB2380HS are both excellent options for a very reasonable price.

Grab one of those Iiyamas then - they're both quality monitors. Alternatively Ebuyer has an ASUS ML239H for £146 but it's an ex-display model. Ebuyer never knock enough off the price for their ex-display stuff. Still, at least with monitors it's a guarantee there's no dead pixels (they're hardly gonna use a dead pixel model for display purposes after all!).

Absolutely. Like most monitors there's an RTC overdrive feature to accelerate pixel response, but unlike most others (exception of ASUS), it gives the user a lot of control over the setting so you can get the balance exactly right for eliminating trails. Values go from -2 to +2. Best results will probably be obtained from a setting of 0.

Probably! I'm not sure about that -B1 in the model number (often they add -1) but it's probably much the same.
