I found this sweet monitor fot 169.99 and it is really nice I dont know alot about monitors but the guy at best buy recommended it and it seems to be a great deal it has a 2ms response time 50,000,000:1 contrast ratio and it is 1920:1080 resolution.
That is a good monitor at that price. If you want it for gaming, watching video, or just general computer use it will work well for you.
More expensive monitors tend to emphasize color accuracy, well this monitor emphasizes a fast response time to work well for gaming. Also contrast ratio is largely a useless number, just an fyi. Used as a big number for a selling point.
