Can anyone recommend a good gaming 22-24 inch monitor. I was looking at a samsung 22 inch one for 279. Also what kind of specs do I need to look for in LCD monitors? I know that what, 5 ms or lower is good? High refresh rates? Higher native resolutions? What else do I need to know? Thanks Matthew

I second that... The Dell 24 is the best thing you can do for yourself. I bought the HC model and its awesome. Had it now for 2 months and no dead pixels and its running strong.
Haha i love seeing these replies... my Dell 24" should arrive on the 2nd October according to the Dell order site... im hanging out for it
Get a Hell, I mean Dell.
Built from a Sammy 8bit panel, good warranty yada yada, ya can't go wrong with a Dell.
Amen. I have two Dell 2407WFP-HC LCDs and they are amazing. It was less than a year ago that I vowed to never buy anything from Dell. This monitor changed my mind.
Good 24" models are a bit pricey when compared to their 22" counterparts. So if money is a concern, go with the Samsung SyncMaster 22" - it is about half the cost of the Dell 24". Another factor is your video card. You need a pretty beefy card to push games at 1920x1200.
ya I ended up ordering a dell 24 inch monitor. It was on sell for low 500s. Only problem is, and they note this after I order it...is that I won't get it until oct 18th. =( bummer
Oh dude you're getting a Dell!
Lol Dell's are good, but there are plenty of other brands out there. The easiest to get good 24" panels are the LG L245 or L246 which BestBuy keeps in stock at most stores. The only difference between the two is the case (one is meant for OEM).
However I own a Dell 2405, it's nice.
well I know people have their own opinions on dell. I know I'm so unsatisified about calling them to talk to people whom barely speak english. Not smart like me...well you know what I mean...so anyways....my fav monitor I've ever had was 17 inch dell that last me forever and still is good to this day with crisp sharp and fast graphics. I just don't use it more because I'm running other sizes...so from my personal experience I trust them on high end monitors. At least til a credible source comes along and proclaims victory for another line.
The Samsung 245B is an excellent monitor and very cheap for the quality you get:
I bought the "2407FPW 24 in Dell 2407WFP Ultrasharp™ Flat Panel Monitor Wide" back in March.....how much better is this new "HC" model?
The major improvement is color gamut. Most monitors have a color gamut of 72%. But there year, a number of new monitors have wide color gamut of 92%.
The wider color gamut have traditionally been used only in LCDs made for graphic professionals and provides "truer colors". Greens will be more saturated compared to the normal 72% color gamut. The difference is not panel technology but the backlighting.
If you are thinking about upgrading, then don't bother.
