Whatever you get, its best to get an IPS panel monitor. They are amazing. They are a bit expensive than the normal run-of-the-mill TN panels. But they are worth it!

The LG one is an e-IPS panel one, so should be good.

Reviews from Asus are 'average' from where?
I've owned an Asus VH242H for about 6 mos. and I think it's GREAT!.. I don't use the speakers.
What's with the 25ms response time on the BenQ monitor?
I saw some very disappointed reviews for the LG on Newegg.
I'm an Asus fan.

Hi Guys thanks for the replies

Here is a very "average" review of the Asus

After a bit more research ive decided to ditch the idea of the BenQ, However im getting very positive reviews and advice about getting the LG and I must admit im seriously considering that now

What is a IPS panel like for gaming though?

For gaming, always a low response time is important to adjust to the constant change in graphics in games. In earlier days, IPS panels had higher response times, which made them not so preferred for gaming. These days, they have also come down. Add to that the amazing viewing angles and better color reproduction and less edge bleeding makes them amazing choice for gaming as well as movie views, image editing! It does a very good job producing true colors!

Bonelli is some kind of perfectionist freak. He wants 'perfect' color out of the box and his tested 25ms rendering times caused 'ghosting' in games which made his reviewed monitors unusable?
Funny, I've never noticed any ghosting in my games. Guess I don't have a Super-Ultra-Maxi-Multi-Gigabyte Graphics card like I'm sure he uses.

Hi Del

Lol I completely understand what you mean.

However im just trying to get the best for the cash I have to spend and it does appear that the LG is getting far better reviews across the board even Bonelli gave it 5 out of 5 stars and thats sying something lol

The Asus looks really nice and PC Pro put it at the A List however after looking through many many reviews it does appear that the LG is getting the best reviews in comparison so I think im going to go with that as its even £10 cheaper

ajh
