LG 22" E2240T-PN –at 185Eur

Samsung 22" BX2235 at 185Eur

AOC 23" E2343FS Touchkey – 185Eur

AOC 22" E2421VWA – 170EUr

Benq 24" G2420HDBL - €199.00

Benq 22" G2222HDL - €159.00

BENQ 24" V2400 - €239.00

Benq 22" V2220H - €199.00

What do you guys think about these? And which brand is like good/best/not good?

AOC sucks. Poor quality across the board.

I can't really check on all the monitors since I am responding on my phone. BenQ is generally good and I would look at one of the 24" monitors.

I kinda knew AOC suck cause they look cheap. Thanks, they have stuck off my list.
Benq is also my fav, Benq or LG not sure yet.

I had Samsung and BenQ monitors, they are both pretty good. In, the samsung is only 22". Maybe you would be happier with a 24"

my viewing distance is aroun 60cm. Do you reckon thats too close for a 24" or enough?
Could you tell which has the best colors/performance regarding the specs? is the 2ms respons better for gamin or there isn't really a big difference?
As I said no HDMI should I get one with HDMI or is dvi enough?

Thanks and cool name btw :p

60cm is fine.

Both will have about the same color since both use the same type of LCD panel; TN.

Generally not much difference between 2ms and 5ms for gaming. Hardcore gamers tend to go for 2ms just because the number is lower.

The only difference between HDMI and DVI is that HDMI carries both video and audio signals. If your monitor has speakers and you want to use those speakers, then you can just use HDMI, or use DVI and an audio cable from your sound card to the monitor.

I have a 5.1 sound system (an im thinking about upgrading) so I don't want monitor with speakers on it.
So which is more reliable do you think (lg,samsung or benq) and which model shall I go for?
