Yeah Im with OvrClkr. You dont need to spend that much for a great monitor these days. When I saw the ASUS 24 incher for 199 today my heart stopped cause Im on the ASUS 23.6 incher and its fantastic. You just have to adjust it to your liking. But at 199 I think thats not a bad trade off at all.

yea, but i had bad experience of the brand acer in all ways. But i know asus and samsung are good brands and have good support and warranty.
but for a low price 24" benq monitor you have to spend like 300$. But also the dollar currency is really low now. so thats maybe why you think im crazy spending 300$ for something you get for 190$ in your country.
BenQ are not the greatest panel's... IMO they are just like the Acer's....
Get a Samsung, LG or Asus and you should be fine....

yea, but the only diffrent between the samsung was that the samsung had 50000:1 more contrast and 2 more in colour deep. What does really colour deep and contrast do? is higher contrast better, is higher colour deep better?
If the contrast ratio is not that far apart comparing both models, just go with the monitor that has the lowest response time. If both are the same then just go with whatever brand you feel more comfortable with...
go with the asus the 50000:1 is just the dynamic contrast ratio... its a number game the same thing with air intakes for cars saying they get you 100hp and save you 5mpg and stuff. you want the actual contrast ratio which in this price range will only be 1000:1 or maybe 2000:1 if you sacrifice some other things.
and a 2ms response time is pretty much up there.
not to mention hdmi and hdmi audio passthrough thats also a plus
