The Samsung monitor is great, but you should consider lower response time, higher brightness and colors & better viewing angel and that's what you'll find in the ASUS monitor. Also the monitor include HDMI input the Samsung doesn't. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
The specs at Newegg for the Samsung S24B300EL are a bit messed up. Looking at the specs on Samsung's website, it has the exact same viewing angles and brightness as the Asus VH238H that ilysaml suggested, and it does have HDMI input. The Asus does claim a lower response time, but the measurements and calculations involved in simplifying response time to a single number have no standardization, so it's not a useful number for comparison.
8ms is not awful, and the number doesn't tell you everything about the ghosting anyway. Look at the review on TFT Central, the ghosting isn't that bad: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_u2312hm.htm
The input lag is impressively low, and Firenutz indicated a desire for image quality, so why not IPS (or at least e-IPS)?
Thanks guys for the feed back I apreciate it! for me its gonna gaming before image quality but that doesn't mean image quality isnt important to me. I have seen in the stores that brands like LG tend to have a better image quality over its competition. I am willing to go to the $250 mark as long as it's worth the money but spending more to gain a marginal difference wouldn't be very wise to me.
