  1. Between those 2 the Asus is by far superior. Better response time, sound and higher contrast ratio.

    I have the 23" version of the above linked one. It was excellently priced and I was not disapointed in the least. I live it. See if you can find it.

    Thanks you for the reply but im really looking for that resolution (2560 x 1440) as well.
  3. By all mean if there is a better manufacturer then those 2 i have linked please let me know. I dont think i want to import a monitor like the Yamakasi catleaps or the crossover monitors.

    Then that is a tall order and the prices you have are pretty good. Get the Asus... Much better :lol:
  5. I've got the 24" version of the Dell (U2412) and it works great. If there is any way you could get a look at these in person before you buy, do it.

    They're both good monitors, so you really can't go wrong.
  6. Just making sure i purchase the right monitor. $700 for me is quite a lot of money for a monitor. :D Thanks again for responses. What do you guys think about these monitors?

  7. I have not heard of those ever... LOL can not help you much. Although the specs seem pretty decent.
  8. hahaha yea, I was in the hardware sub-reddit (reddit.com/r/hardware) seen someone talking about being able to oc the refresh rate on these monitors. They are very reasonable priced.

    I saw that. Pretty cool. As long as it does not effect warranty I would try those screens.
