Hi guys,

It's time to change my monitors and I'm looking to buy 3. I don't have good knowledge with monitors so I need your inputs again.

Resolution : 1920x1080 (cheaper i think), 1920x1200 would be nice too if affordable
purchase date : in the next weeks
Size : 24" (23 will do also)
Budget : 200-300 per screen
Primary use : Work (75%), Gaming (20%), watching movies and surfing (5%). Games will be D3 and some FPS like BF, COD, etc.
Preferred sites :,, (I'm in Canada)
Other notes : Must have vesa mount. HDMI would be nice but is not a must. I don't care about built-in speakers or webcam. It's primary for work and my main game will be D3 so image quality > response time.

The first that I saw is the ASUS VW246H
16:9, 2ms, hdmi, meet all criteria, seems to be getting great reviews, recommended for gamers on a budget. Is it the best pick at 200$?

Dell IPS U2412m,g:NextStep,rk:
The price drop sometimes to 300$. 16:10 ratio, no hdmi, 8ms, i read that the input lag is high also on ips screens. What about image quality and what does it looks like in games?

Other options:

Viewsonic VX2450wm-led

Acer V243HAJbd

What do you guys suggest?
IPS or not?
Do you have any other option I should consider?

Thanks a lot!!!
