I could not be happier with my new 23in LED. No eyestrain like with LCD at all. and just like with big TVs it seems to do blacks better.

Hi madevil59, Welcome to THW.

I have not use and LED display yet, but from what I hear they are the top dog when it comes to color, brightness and contrast.

I just wanted to let you know to watch Newegg.com's email deal's because they always have different LCD/LED displays on sale. Guaranteed at least one is on sale if not more.

Yeah, just "backlight" system, the other are no different.
What is your budget? We can suggest you a monitor based on your budget...

Such an insane graphics set up will be wasted on anything less than 2560x1600 resolution, so look at some 30" monitors or surround gaming with 3 of those 24" or 27".

FYI - The Ultrasharps were just on a 25% discount on the daily deal from logicbuy posted in the news section on Tom's. :)  The deal may still be going on.

I am not sure, but are LED's afraid of still-image?..do they suffer from burn-ins?

No. Plasma was the only thing that suffered from that as far as I know. The main advantage I see over my older LCD is lack of eyestrain no matter the brightness level.

Eyestrain?...I don't get any eye strain from an LCD, a CRT monitor gives huge eyestrain. Not sure about the LCD, maybe i'm just used to it. And a huge amount of TV's suffer still-image, crt, plasma, and many forms of projection TV's also.

Read back in this post. And recall that so called "LED TVs" are LCD TVs with LED backlights as opposed to CCFL. Also recall that the cause of burn-in has nothing to do with the backlight.

LED has a small color advantage over LCD (Deep Blacks). lol but if you can find an OLED screen then your on fire! best looking screen ever made :)  even if its for £2000

I can guarantee LCD's dont burn in, even LCD Tv's. I have used two different LCD 37" Tv's (Westinghouse/Sony) for PC monitors for ~5years and never had a problem. Dont think I am crazy these doubled as my Tv so I didnt have to buy a screen for both my Tv and PC.

The thing you have to watch out for is "Bleed Through or Bleeding" when the backlight starts to appear brighter in random cloud like bloches or in the coners, that is the most common issue.

LCD's don't burn really?...who would have thought.

Its a known fact.

Burn-in comes from using phosphors in the screen, - CRTs and Plasmas will burn in, LCD won't.

+1 to the backlight bleed issue - cheap monitors (regardless of backlighting type) are prone to some nasty bleed from the lighting, so the edges (and sometimes patches in the screen) are brighter/washed out and it can ruin the overall image, especially in a dark environment.

Also, be mindful of the type of panel the monitor uses - with a budget of a grand and a half, there's no need to bother with TN panels.
