not sure which monitor to choose... samsung will only be about 30$ more cause i can go to bestbuy and just pick it up and not have to wait for shipping. is there really any difference or is the brand the only true difference between them? right now i have a samsung syncmaster 2033 20", has worked fine for past 3.5 years with no problems so kinda leaning towards samsung again. with asus i wont be ordering til late thursday night so it wont ship til friday and wont get until probably monday. the samsung i could just go pickup friday evening at the bestbuy store.

I don't find any meaningful differences between them in the specifications.

That one has fewer inputs than the others, but probably not an issue for most people. However, I see two potentially significant differences between the S27B350H and the others:
1. The S27B350H has no speakers.
2. The S27B350H has no VESA mounting holes.

I don't blame you for not caring about the built-in speakers, but I'd like to mention that VESA mounting holes aren't just for mounting it to the wall; they can also be used with stands to allow height adjustment and pivoting to portrait orientation.
