Hi guys,

I'm trying to decide on a new monitor. For now I'm looking to spend under £250 on a monitor. If I got 27" I will stick with a single monitor set up, or if I got a 24" I would use my existing monitor as a second screen.

I would Ideally like a Dual HDMI input to use my PS3 alongside should the need ever arise.

I am completely open to suggestions. I have spent many hours looking on Amazon and various articles but can't seem to find anything that I have been sold on as of yet, including whether I want the extra size of a 27" or a better quality 24". Where do you experts stand on this one?

Thanks in advance!

This was one that stood out to me, however just out of interest, why this over the VE278H or VS278Q?

I could not understand why this was the most expensive despite having the lowest contrast and having the same response times. What am I missing?
