So basically, like the title says, I'm looking for a monitor. Here's what I want:
Price: $150, give or take ~$40
Resolution: 1920 x 1080
Response time: 5ms or less preferred
Backlight type: LED preferred (better dynamic contrast ratio)
Intended use (in order of importance): Gaming, coding, web browsing, MS Office-related stuff
Viewing Angle: The more, the merrier. Would be nice to have 120 degrees vertical and horizontal, but not really necessary
Color accuracy: As long as the colors are reasonable, I'm good with it. Some granularity of control over the colors would be preferred, but not necessary
There aren't too many displays you can find for $160 USD or less that are sized 21-inches or greater with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, come from a well-respected hardware vendor, utilize an LED-backlight panel, and offer HDMI video input.
The ASUS VE228H manages to successfully fill this area.
