srry to post here but i cudn't find a section for lcd's. i have made a few choices to buy a 22'' lcd, please tell me which one is best and suggest your choices.
1. asus mw221u
2. viewsonic vx2255wmb
3. dell e228wfp
my basic aim is watching movies (divx, dvd, high def) and playing games at the native resolution.
please suggest any other monitor of your choices also. thanx
Well i can't comment on the Dell and the Asus, because i never used or saw them, i will comment on the screen i just received, the Viewsonic VX2255.
First of all, the screen is so damn bright. i had to lower the contrast and brightness a lot in order to get it to be non eye-straining. The Black finish is a dust magnet.
Second, I can't seem to find out what's it's contrast ratio, the website says 1000:1 but all review sites says 700:1. I am still confused about it.
Until now, i experienced no ghosting whatsoever in games, and i tried it in many games. Movies are excellant on it and are a joy to watch with my surround sound system. and the webcam and mic are a handy extra for me.
P.S. I got this monitor from malaysia for 275$, dunno what's it's price in US.
at do you mean manual configure is crap, when it comes from samsung it doesn't say "this monitor has been pre-configured for maximum performance" so i don't think samsung have done anything wrong here.
I have the 931bw, the 19" version of the 226bw. And it's the A panel. Wich is fine to me, i had to configure it a bit. But after a few weeks its perfect to me.. the only thing that bothers me on this monitor is the viewing angle. but that's normal with TN panels
The price is nice, the design is VERY nice (but that's personal ) so i don't see any reasons not to buy it.
