New LCD Monitor - Which one to buy

Hello all,

This is my first post on the THG forums, although I have been using the THG site for many years. I am now in the market for a new LCD Monitor and was hoping to get some help on choosing which one would be the best for my price range.

Usually I would pop onto THG and find the latest article on monitors and see whats-what, but I have not been able to locate anything that suits my current situation, and I am not currently not as up to date as I would like to be, with what is out there and how they stack up.

Ok, well to the brass, I have been looking at two monitors in particular -

SAMSUNG 906BW Black-Silver 19" 2 ms (GTG) Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2000:1 DC - Retail


Acer AL2216Wbd Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP support 300 cd/m2 700:1 - Retail

My original price limit was $200, and I was surprised by what that could afford me with today, prices and product have change since I last looked into purchasing a monitor. Also when looking I was aiming at a 19" Widescreen, but after seeing the price difference of moving to a 22" I was compelled to ask for some advice.

I play alot of Pc Video Games; WoW, CSS, BF2, well as watch alot of movies and need something that is going to provide me with great quality, but stay in my price range of now $230.

Any feedback and suggestion would be greatly appreciated, on what I have listed, and/or on some products that might be better then those I have.

Thanks in advance.
