Theres nothing special about that monitor. Perhaps it has a smaller pixel pitch than your monitor would it look nicer.

Also dynamic contrast doesn't count for anything. Such unrealistic qoutes. Look for static contrast which is usually 1000:1 anyway.

If you want smooth motion, go for something 120hz. If you want excelent colors go for a Dell IPS monitor.

I too agree with the no difference scenario here.. If you need to upgrade then either switch to a LED monitor (no apparent advantages except more power savings) or go for an IPS panelled monitor (high cost but the best colors you can get on a non CRT platform)

I saw both those monitors at frys' and messed with the features abit. The Samsung looked more aesthetically pleasing and overall better picture quality. I just bought The Samsung P2450H and so far so good, BFBC2 looks really vibrant on it. That LG is a little darker as far as brightness goes.... but i suggest you go check it out yourself.

1080 monitors are dime a dozen I never understood the shift to these from 1920 x 1200 ones, your losing some height and pixels. A 5870 is overkill for 1080 monitors. You should shoot higher for a 30" 2560 x 1600 its so worth the extra costs!!

thanks but that monitor is expensive and im student and i dont have enough cash to buy it
