I do not think your eyes can really tell the difference of image quality from both although, theoretically, the VE247H should be better.
Both are good monitors, you will not regret getting any of them.
I hate white as color for monitors, I usually go for either grey or black. I guess thisi is not important ^^
Seeing how you seem to be an expert and all, do you have any recommendations (around the same price) besides these two monitors that you feel would be a better buy? I'm just trying to get the most out of my money like a cheapskate!
Also, thank you for the quick reply!
