I'm currently trying to decide what monitor to get. I'll be using it alongside my 720p hdtv for a dual monitor setup. I'll be using the new monitor mostly for gaming. I have an hd 5850 graphics card, so power is not an issue. I've been researching monitors for a while on many different sites, and I have found a few choices. I sit a few feet away from the monitor normally.
Edit: I'm running Windows 7, currently. I'm not sure if that would have any driver issues or even be an issue, but just putting that out there.
The Hanns-G is the best monitor on your list. There is a reason why it is a 6 time customer choice winner on Newegg! This is a massive monitor and worth every penny and worth every dollar over comparable Asus, Acer, and Ben-Q monitors; the Samsung 26" is a close second.
1)Image quality does not decrease as monitor size increases.
2) From this list, Hanns-G and/or Samsung 26". Hanns-G is the better value.
3) No ghosting issues, not with the Hanns-G or Samsung.
4) For gaming, 1900x1200 is a preferred resolution. This higher the better! Don't get me wrong 1080p is nice, but playing COD4:MW, COD:W@W, Wolfenstein, and Gears of War at 1900x1200 with lots of eye candy is friggin sweet!
i will go with samsung T260 because i had bad experience with Hanns·G JW-199DPB (4 dead pixels) and now im using T240 and simply amazing. i dont want to say that hanns g is bad but samsung is better overall for me.
