I too am curious whether this monitor is good. I want to purchase a 24" monitor and have been looking for like a month but I haven't been able to decide, there are so many options to think about in a monitor it is sickening. At any rate, I use my computer almost strictly for gaming and browsing the web. I haven't set a budget but I am considering either a Samsung Monitor or a Dell monitor, most likely the Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP. However, this Samsung is $240 less expensive...is it worth the extra money to buy the Dell or is there a better monitor out there in the 500 or less price range in 24"?
