After days of researching, and plenty of great contenders, I have narrowed down my budget/mid range monitor selection. I currently have a Dell 19" E198WFP from 2007, and am looking to upgrade, Although looking at the specs here, it doesn't seem as bad as I thought on paper (5ms response), which makes it all the more important to ensure what I get will be better. http://www.cnet.com/products/dell-e198wfp/specs/

I'm choosing between:

RL2455HM - (BenQ's gaming monitor)

VX238H - (ASUS' Gaming Monitor) (Also where can this be bought reliably in the UK?)

VS239HV/H-P - The IPS Choice (but 5ms response) (Is there a major difference between the HV and H-P) there's also a VX239 as well

VS247H-P or VS238H-P (Appear to be 24 and 23 inch versions of the same model 24 has speakers and tv tuner) both seem very popular and high rated

(also considering GL2460HM due to low price point- are there any disadvantages of this one over the others)
I could put all the specs and research i've done here, but it would probably be overwhelming, and sometimes conflicting, never mind being hard to compile. What I would like is opinions from people who have experience with these monitors and what the specs really translate to.

Typicaly being ASUS, there are like 100 iterations of the 'same' monitor, so hopefully i've picked the better versions

I'm looking mainly at ebuyer and amazon to buy one.

Is 250cd/m2 a concern? and

Are there likely to be any upcoming monitor sales or price cuts? Is there reason for me to wait (<1 month) to purchase?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-VX238H/dp/B0097I10K0 handled by ALEMAR shop but Amazon has good support in the case that your item does not arrive.

I'd recommend the VX238H because I personally love that monitor.

Yes, I've noticed both with that and the RL2455HM they were stocked by both ebuyer and amazon a few days ago and now all appear to have gone / from a diff retailer at a higher price. I'm a bit pissed tbh.

Where can you buy anything in the UK nowadays? It's pathetic. Thanks for your response though :)
