Both are good looking monitors which is also important to me...The Asus costs $180 cad and Acer costs about $205.
I play games and watch all my movies tv shows and anime on my pc so the Color quality is really important. The Acer monitor is an IPS with a 5ms response while the Asus has a 1ms response time and NOT an IPS.
I have never had any experience with Ghosting or bad colors.. My current 4 year old Samsung Syncmaster 933 is still strong and good but I need a 1080p display, Which one should I go for?
Why do you say that? The vx238h is only slightly costlier but it has a 1ms GTG and looks very beautiful !!
I personally prefer the color quality and accuracy of an IPS panel which the VX238H http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ANKMNXO/ref=as_li_q... isn't but if you're primarily gaming then this would be the way to go. If watching movies is a big part of what you'll be doing then you will want an IPS monitor.
Oops, another question, What will I gain with the 1ms response time? Is it worth not getting the IPS even though I plan to game a lot?
