I'm leaning towards the 25 inch HP monitor. It is glossy, which is what I want. The pixel pitch is 0.288mm vs 0.272mm of the Asus monitor.
They both have the same 1080 resolution, although being the 25 inch monitor, the quality is going to suffer a bit though, especially with the higher pixel pitch. Having said that, on Newegg, these two monitors are the SAME PRICE, basically. The Asus monitor is 2ms vs the HP which is a 5ms.
I can also choose to buy the HP monitor from Amazon for $232.54. This means extra almost 50 dollars in price for the non-refurbished version from Amazon, BUT, I heard Amazon has an awesome return policy. Although there seems to be a very low rate of any dead/stuck pixels in this particular monitor, should I go with Amazon instead?
