Help me pick a new 24-27" moniter
Hey folks, I'm in the market for a new monitor and I'm looking for a few suggestions.

-Web Browsing
-Watching Videos
-Watching 1080P Blueray rips

Budget: <$500 (Lower the better)

Size: Something in the 24" - 27" range

-Display Port

Other Features:
-Height Adjustable Stand
-Second HDMI would be nice
-USB hub

My current screen is a Samsung SyncMaster 225BW (22")

I think an IPS or VA panel with low input lag would be the way to go.

My current System that will be connected at all times has an ATI 4890 1GB GPU in it; and the laptop i will connect at times (via HDMI) has a Nvidia GTX260M 1GB GPU. as a result i don't think i really need a 3D capable display as I'm not in a position to fully utilize it at this time.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for your time guys/gals!

This are my personal experience:


BenQ V2410 - Great LED VA panel. Watching 1080p movies, and web browsing is a delight. I used it on some photo editing (Picasa) - i have no complaints. Great FPS monitor for BF3 and other games.

BenQ E2420 - I bought it yesterday, and im returning it tomorrow. Horrible ghosting with BF3, slight bluish tone. Played around with the tone and colors - still has that bluish tone not found on my V2410.


Acer 27" H274HL BMID - Its more a better TV than a monitor. And its on sale right now @ CC for 239. I had no problems with it playing BF3, but the color saturation is horrible than i can handle. So i returned it as well.

samsung led pannesl are really nice too and look good too.

Asus had been known to make decent panels too.

The Asus 27" LEd Displays look great and are super low cost with an amazing warranty.

and they come in at a low cost of $354.24 and less on sale

Thanks for all the suggestions so far, one thing i foregot to note was i need a unit with a Height Adjustable Stand (HAS).

ive been looking at the samsung PLS screens as well but ive heard tales of bad backlight bleeding on them, as anyone heard anything different?

Thanks again
