Hi there!

I'm looking at buying a new LED monitor. I've narrowed the options down to the following:

SAMSUNG® BX2335 LED LCD - 23" Wide, 16:9 HD, 1920x1080, 2ms Response Time, 5,000,000:1 Contrast Ratio, 250cd/m²

OR

SAMSUNG® BX2235 LED LCD - 21.5" Wide, 16:9 HD, 1920x1080, 2ms Response Time, 5,000,000:1 Contrast Ratio, 250cd/m²

The only difference between these two monitors is their size. However, seeing as the first one is bigger, but with the same resolution, do you think there'll be an appreciable difference in picture quality, considering it has the same number of pixels spread over a wider area?

Thanks!

It also depends on how far you sit from the monitor, but there will be little difference. 1.5" smaller translate to a minor change in pixel density anyway.

Maybe you should look for a 120hz monitor instead of your going to by a TN. LED despite all the marketing hype doesn't actually improve picture quality.

The difference will be very, very minor.

I'm pretty happy with the picture quality of my two 25.5" LCD monitors (1920 x 1200).

At twice the price? No way! The monitors I've chosen fall right in my budget. Besides, here in darkest Africa, 120hz is quite the rarity. Also, having never seen an IPS panel (to my knowledge), and only budget TNs, I'd be none the wiser.

Say I sit two and a half feet away from my monitor. Do you think I'd notice any differences between the two models? Or are the differences that negligible?

Thank you for your comments!
