Thanks for your replies, I have looked at the monitors suggested so far but I am looking specificakly for a 24" model rather than
23" or 27". I dont need this monitor for very high quality cg work or intense gaming however I do have a GTX 480 so it should be able to complement it.
I was looking at the HP 2408h and the G2420HD, have any advice, other similar monitors?
If you are looking into TN panel based monitors then i'd recommend you to pick up the one which looks best to you and has all the connectivity options for your needs.. The HP 2408h is a beautifully crafted display.. The Samsung P2470HD/P2450HD could be another option(s)..
I am also interested in this topic and noticed it is far from solved as of yet.
so, just to be clear...below the $400 mark you just can't get a LCD screen that is not TN panel? Ppl keep telling me that TN panel is crap, but how many of us are reallllly trying to spend more than $400 on a monitor.
I bought my last 24" for $300 in 2006. Why are they not cheaper or better haha.
so yesterday I measured by old "24 inch" LCD which did really well for me during the past few years until it started to bail last week. Turns out the actual diagonal screen size was 22.5 inches...wtf lol. My new Dell 23" measured exactly 23" and works well.
don't forget ur tape measure gentlemen if ur buyin a not so great brand. lolz.
