The only real difference I can see between the two is that the second accepts both VGA and DVI, and the first accepts DVI and HDMI. What is better? VGA or DVI? I see a lot of new montiors have one or the other...I mean I have adapters for my video card but which one should I be using here?
Another difference is that the first is LED backlit. Is this really a big difference? I read in a review about some cheap LED backlit displays (like the first one here) can have issues with flickering, etc.
The first one is in general a newer product, so that it features HDMI and LED backlight.
DVI is a better option since it's a digital output vs VGA which is analog. Today video cards all have DVI so no need for any adapters.
Don't know much about that specific model TBH, I would try to find a Dell 2311 or an equivalent Samsung if it fits your budget.
Thanks and anyone know about LED backlit displays having problems with flickering and the like? I haven't really found any other monitors at a deal like this right now.
Not usually a big issue. The S230 is better. It has one extra HDMI port from the looks of it too. It's sold out though.
If you have a couple of more bucks and are in Canada, Dell has the ST2220T on sale for $229.99. It's a glossy touch screen with an IPS panel that will blow these two out of the water in terms of image..
