The Asus VE237 is a very good quality monitor. LED with all three inputs. My friend has them for eye-finity. Looks fantastic.

I'm not too sure what to do either about displays. I'm leaning towards the Asus line like the VH236H or 242H (open to LED like the 247 as well) but I really like the LG 2442, especially since it has a rotating stand.

Plan on building towards an eyefinity setup. Currently have a Dell S2309, so I'm not sure if I'd keep this and add two of any of the above or make all three the same.

Agreed

My work screen is the LG W2442PA and can attest to it being one of the better TN panels I've used. Low backlight bleed, low input lag, decent array of connectivity and will work with PC and console quite well. I suggested it to a friend and he's also been very happy with it. Also it comes with a nice height adjustable stand, which is rare at this price point. The stand can actually adjust to a very low or high level.

I can pretty much echo exactly what YukonTrooper has said (obviously lol).

So no one's used the BenQ E2420HD? It's pretty hot right now and the comments make it look like it's an excellent monitor.

I had it for some time, as BenQ sent it to me as a review unit.

Nothing spectacular, but a pretty good 24" TN unit nonetheless. Color reproduction was fairly accurate and input lag and response time were fast.

Hmm. I bought it for $150 + tax. Do you think it's worth it to keep it? I still didn't open it yet.

Can you post your review on it? I'd like to read it.
