Wondering what people think of this monitor. I had been waiting for the dell monitor below (ordered on 3/9) but they just sent me a notice that it won't be shipped to 5/3..... which beyond my patience level. If not that I'm looking to spend around that much for a 23.6-24 inch monitor and up to suggestions which will be used primarily for gaming.

On a seperate note has anyone tried gaming on a 55inch lcd 120hz? Been thinking about it but heard doesnt look that good and wording hard to read.

Before you buy a monitor like that ASUS you linked, think at some length about whether it's going to bug you that it has an unusual stand (the ring-stand system), which means two things: the monitor will always tilt back towards the wall, and is always going to sit flat on your desk - if you want to adjust the height, you're going to have to stack books under it or something. Additionally, you can't use a VESA or other third-party system to wall mount those monitors - you are pretty much stuck with it sitting on your desk, or whatever you prop it up with. If that doesn't bother you, then it might be a good fit for you - that series of monitor gets generally good reviews as far as image quality and such go. Personally, however, I opted not to go with the ASUS MS-series because of the ring stands and the fact that I couldn't use a VESA wall-mount.

I went with ASUS VW246H Glossy Black 24" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 ASCR 20000:1 (1000:1) instead, and couldn't be happier.

Any other suggestions? Is it worth the price for 5ms vs 2ms?

It's mostly just a matter of preference at this point - you aren't likely to see a noticeable difference between those two monitors in terms of response times. General wisdom is that anything under 6ms will be perfectly fine for gaming. They both get good reviews overall, and so all you can really do at this point is weigh the pros and cons of each, and see which one seems like the better value to you. Personally, I would grab the Dell, just because of the stand and the ability to wall mount it. Keep in mind that if you ever want to run a multi-display setup, the awkward stand of the ASUS might make that difficult. Again though, that may not be a concern for you.

Good luck!

Yeah- the Asus looks good, but it might be irritating if you can't adjust anything about it. You can get a normal stand type with a Samsung 23" for about the same price, but its smaller. There seem to be more deals at the 23" size than the 23.6 or 24". Might be worth dropping the extra 0.6-1.0" to get a better deal.
