Comparing low budget gaming monitors

Anyone know which of these monitors would be best for gaming and movies? I hear a lot about how colours on certain monitors can be off, and that 5 ms or below is best for gaming plus there is contrast to take into account...and I don't want huge visible light "bleeding" edges from the monitor being "of that type"...

I like the benq brand but I don't know if their lower price range quite matches up to Asus...

I'm also open to other choices, my budget is £150 GBP, I don't want a monitor that looks like my 8 year old brother drew the design either, and the monitor MUST be black and wall mountable (on movable brackets)

I am running a BenQ and have no hesitation recommending you do the same. Mine is a lower end 21.5 monitor with a 1080 P resolution and I can not fault it.
The last Asus is also worth a second look. Make sure you have all the connections you need USB/HDMI etc as its easy to get caught up in specs and forget about connectivity.

Thanks! I'll probably get the benq if you had good experience with a lower range one...They look so stylish too and as an avid player of league of legends you can see why they appeal to me with them being used heavily by gambit gaming and MLG/LCS
