Hey, I've been eating myself from the inside attempting to decide on a new monitor to go with my new computer. The main point that I'm stuck on is to spend the big cash on an IPS monitor for the truer colors and better viewing angles, as I have been known to do some flash and photoshop work, or to get one of the quality less expensive TN panels that have worse colors but the faster response time as I am a fan of playing game now and again... and again.

I had my eye on the 3 monitors in the title of the post, but if you have a suggestion that you feel is a better choice let me know, I always appreciate it. I was looking for a quality monitor around the 24" size range with preferably either a 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 resolution, a fast enough response time to enjoy most games, and as true colors as I can get for under $400. My GPU is an ASUS EAH5850 Radeon HD 5850.

I can't open your links.

The first two are IPS and have an LG panel and the Dell has 8ms response time, a bit too much for gaming. The newer TFT panels are pretty decent. Here are two good sites, Here are the HP review pages:

There's no reviews on the net for many newer monitors, here's a few not very expensive:

LED backlit, TV tuner (no PIP)

Well you've to decide what is the priority for you, gaming or photoshop. Because IPS panels are just not great for games, same with TN panels for photoshop, although, I'd like to add that the latter for graphical work is not completely useless, & to notice the difference in color reproduction, you'd have to have very keen eyes.
I guess you might as well get a TN, since its inaccurate color reproduction would be more than nullified by the tradeoffs in gaming.

I guess when I really sit down and think about it gaming would have to take priority, so I'll go ahead and get something near the ASUS monitor I linked. The insight is appreciated, as always.

There is also a VE246H in there.

I just found the Dell ST2410 24" on Dell's website on sale for $200, very tempting.

Absolutely do not get the 24", its a big screen but the image quality is bad and the response time is 5ms, just get the ASUS VW246H 24" much better picture quality and 2ms response time so there is no ghosting(frame lag) in games.

I ended up getting the ASUS VE246H 24" because I liked the looks of it a little more than the VW246H, all though it's brightness is about 17% less. Thanks for all the input guys, appreciate it.

Hi Seanr111,

So, quick question about that VE246H... I'm looking to get one too, but I'm confused on the dimensions. Every thing I read says it's 13.4" high WITH the stand attached. That seems REALLY short, considering my 19" Samsung is taller and 99% of the other 24" LCDs I see are all around 16" with a stand. Any chance you can tell me if it is, in fact, 13.4" tall with the stand attached?? That would help me out greatly as I'm trying to fit the LCD into a tight spot!

Thanks...

Jeff
