Default New monitor, LED?

Im buying a new monitor this weekend and wanted a second opinion on what to get. Ive been using all BenQ monitors thus far and I must say I am a fan of the brand. My price range is max $230 and it will be general use and very little gaming. Mainly used for working and screwing around on the internet.

First I was thinking of getting this one: NCIX.com - Buy ASUS MS238H 23IN Widescreen Ultra Slim LED LCD Monitor 1920X1080 2MS 10000000:1 HDMI DVI VGA - MS238H In Canada.

LED so cheaper on power and 23 inch but then I saw the BenQ 24 inch here:

NCIX.com - Buy BenQ V2210 21.5IN LED LCD Monitor 1920X1080 5000000:1 Black HDMI - V2210 In Canada.

Which would you buy and why? Anything else I could consider?

my answer is not SPECIFIC to your model question; but my contribution to this thread is this:

I did a roll-out of all ASUS monitors for a client a couple of months ago and i was horrified at the quality. What was supposed to be black was grey, the color was washed out, and the sharpness was... um... not very sharp. I am thankful the client does not share my same level of quality, but i will never re-sell another Asus brand monitor.

As a brand I like BenQ products. If you want something to compare with i'd go with Samsung instead.

</.02 cents>

I saw the video where Linus unboxed the ASUS MS238H and the stand is freaken ugly... Takes up so much space too, thus defeating the purpose of having a slim LCD.
