I'm in the market for a quality 24" or 22" LCD with low input lag, a 3-year warranty, Class II pixel quality (ie no more than 2 dead pixels allowed), and for ~$250 or less from a reputable source such as newegg. I was considering purchasing an entire build from newegg, but it seems my monitor may need to be found elsewhere. Any suggestions?
Some have suggested the Dell UltraSharp 2209WA, but it is a little too steep for my budget:
I believe the same is true of Dell monitors that have the "premium panel" guarantee - mostly the more expensive Ultrasharp models. I've owned several Dell monitors though, and not one of them has had a single bad pixel.
Thanks for the input - looking at reviews there are often cons that state there is some kind of finite dead pixel policy, but I was not aware that all inexpensive monitors have this policy.
The ASUS looks like a good monitor, though I've continually seen posts on forums that ASUS cuts corners and has the worst monitors. Hearsay is often wrong, and I'll definitely consider the VW246H. Thanks again!
