Who said it was?
Anyway, at that budget, you won't find good gaming monitors as most are 120Hz and cost 200 euros.

Ok, at least something that can HANDLE gaming without having problems?

I forgot you were in the UK. My bad. Yeah, that is a good one. 23.6" has high pixels per inch, which is good.

Identical specs with that Asus you posted and the Samsung I posted other than that Samsung is a 21.5" (smaller). That Asus goes for around £175 in the UK. The UK has a terrible selection when it comes to 2ms monitors and what they do have they charge a mint for. On the other hand they have that CM HAF 912+ over in Europe and Oz that I still can't understand why they don't sell that case in North America. It would be a hot item.

Those are two entirely different things lol. Dynamic contrast ratio is not the same as actual contrast ratio.

That's DCR.

It breaks down to something like this: DCR 1,000,000:1 (1,000:1) So that Asus would actually be: 5,000:1

In testing, the actual contrast ratio is going to be less than the advertised actual contrast ratio.

Being, SAY honest here, which is better, excluding the price, which item is physically better, da Asus or Samsung monitor, mon?

#Viewsonic VX2450WM-LED 24-Inch (23.6-Inch Vis) Widescreen LED Monitor with Full HD 1080p and Speakers - Black

That's a nice monitor. The only knock against it I can see is the slower response time (5ms vs 2ms). Faster the response time like 2ms, the less chance of ghosting and/or tearing.

So you can honestly say he can see a 3ms difference? There is a lot more to a monitor than size/res/response time.
April 30, 2012 8:59:10 PM

Well, if u keep gaming in mind 2ms response time is bare minimum.

Wrong. Anything below 8ms is fine for gaming.
April 30, 2012 9:10:12 PM

If u want 2ms than here are few good ones.

Here is some info abour response time.

Response time in monitors refer to the amount of time a pixel (dot) takes to go from black to white and back to black again. It is measured in milliseconds (ms). The lower the number, the faster the pixels can change, reducing the ghosting or streaking effect you might see in a moving or changing image such as in games and movies. Common response times range anywhere from 14ms to 5ms. Monitors that are designed for faster applications feature response times as fast as 2ms. These monitors are ideal for gamers, video enthusiasts, engineers and movie production houses.

Nope, because you can't truly know the black to white response time, which is what matters, so anything below 8ms for grey to grey is good.
April 30, 2012 9:13:56 PM

Yes lower the better.
So. i think you can get a 5ms response time monitor which is the norm today.You want see any notable diff.

So much misinformation going around in this thread lol. I can provide proof for my claims, but can you?
April 30, 2012 9:16:13 PM

Exactly, it is GTG, not BTW, which is what really matters. IN GTG, 8ms is fine.

It won't matter. All 60Hz TN panels are the same.
April 30, 2012 9:30:31 PM

This good? 21.5 good size?


#It depends on u what size u need or are comfortable with.

Lieutenant Awesome said:
Thing is, this ones on offer for £99, it jus says 300 rather than 350 and has an S on the end. Can someone check the specs to make sure there's nothing dodgey about it, and it's good for gaming?

#its same as Why_me suggested just a lower model.
April 30, 2012 9:43:43 PM

Is that monitor I posted good? Unsure of size I want, is there any guide anywhere so I can see what 21.5 inches actually is.

The U2312HM is good for gaming, but it is 23". 23" is better for 1080p than 24" cuz of the higher ppi. It has a low 10ms INPUT LAG and great color lvls.
May 1, 2012 5:25:12 PM

So when it comes to Hz, is bigger or smaller better? 60 or 120?

LG E2441V-BN 24inch LED Widescreen Monitor

this is the monitor i bought and it works perfectly fine, i get no recognisable lag and it has great picture quality, it costs $170 Australian so that'd be around your budget right? you dont need a 120hz monitor unless you want to go 3D i think? i mean running 120hz would make it obviously twice as smooth but you really have to take things into account like your GPU and the overall speed of your computer.
May 3, 2012 1:19:06 AM

I mean unless your a display fiend you wont have any problems. i never really liked LG so much but i got this monitor for its price, size and look and its been great so far had it for only a year though but no problems whatsoever and im running it almost everyday with both my PC and PS3 you can even plug your PC through the DVI and run your Hdmi from the console of your choice and switch between the two with the press of a button. i know most monitors can probably do this but just thought i'd point it out as its a really handy feature
