you're probably looking to get a 1920x1080 (1080p) monitor

3d-ready means that it boasts a higher refresh rate then normal (and a higher price tag normally). if you dont want a three dimensional effect (trust me, its not very good) dont bother with requiring it.

lcd/led confuses alot of people. both are actually lcd panels. the ones labeled lcd are backlit by a ccfl. the ones labeled as led are backlit by leds around the edge. cheaper screens using leds can make the image shift into a blue hue but other than that they are about the same. you can adjust out the hue as well.

at that price range i'd suggest going with a computer monitor instead of a television. you will get higher quality since a monitor doesnt require a tuner and all the extra features which cost money.

there are a few different types of lcd panels. TN, VA, e-IPS, IPS in order of cheapest to most expensive, and from worst color accuracy to best (generally speaking). TN panels are typically only good to view from a very direct angle before they start to "grey out" or "color warp" on you. laptop screens are normally TN.

personally i prefer higher budget IPS screens for the best picture but you could make do on a VA or e-IPS just fine. TN panels can be okay as well but i don't like the bad viewing angles on them.

i've always liked viewsonic monitors and that is the brand i normally go with but some people swear by other brands. just find a few monitors with the options you like and read a few reviews to help you decide.

ips might be hard to get in your budget unless you go with a smaller monitor (20, 22") and nto something larger. e-ips isn't quite as good but still a good panel.

I believe the U2311H is an e-IPS, but correct me if I'm wrong. I've read some good things about it, I'm thinking of picking it up if I can't cough up enough for a U2410.

Sorry on budding in on you thread. How do you know which type, IPS TN or whatever, when you are buying one. I am in the a similar position than he is. Not sure which type to get. I mostly plan to do gaming. My graphics card is somewhat better not that it really matters. Will just make things run smoother.
