Default Looking for 25-26" display

Looking to spend up to $350 what are my options? Any feedback on the Asus VW266H. I'm not really a gamer more movie, some cad and general use.

There is that monitor, there is also the Hanns-G 281DPB which is there, I am not recommending it (I don't know too much about it), but it gets within the 350$ budget limit from time to time.

Ive got the same asus monitor you mentioned, stunning monitor in my opinion. Crisp vibrant colors and the picture quality is top notch. Best investment ive made in some time as I tend to keep display units for about 10 years at a time lol.(Finally dropped my old SUN 21" CRT I had back in Nov.

I was also looking for a larger monitor for gaming and was pretty much stuck on the ASUS 25.5 for price and availabilty,did all kind of seaches and i wasen about to unload a big chunk of cash, then I came across the LG W2753V: Future Shop: Computers: Monitors: LG 27" Widescreen LCD Monitor With 2ms Response Time (W2753) - Bl
Read as much as i could find on them, the boys at EVGA loved them, It was on sale for 399$ at the time, I went to the store and they were sold out so i reserved one a a store about a hour away, 2 days later before going to pick it up I call the local store and I'm told that 2 came in and were open box for 299$, I stop in open one of the boxes to check it out, and the guy had returned it with the dvi cable !! lol (it comes with a vga) I grabbed that box brought this home , I love it its fast and the picture is awsome!! no dead pixels it was just great luck.

edit : couldnt post link cause it was my first post i guess

You should just go and get a nice LG 30" for yourself!

Heh. I love mine. You always hear about lag or ghosting, but no such issues here. You just need a system that can properly push that many pixels.
