Hi there!

Ive been wanting a new monitor for a very long time and

Monitor Specs Looked for:

- I will be looking at this monitor dead on, not at an angle.

- 1080p.

- Speakers not needed at all, but if it has it, oh well :).

- HDMI (if it does not have it, i can use a different cable)

- Under $250.

- 23 or 24 inch.

[Samsung Electronics B300 Series S24B300EL 23.6-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor $199.99]

Choose A Monitor - PCPartPicker

IPS options.. I would def go the 1920x1200 if you can afford it, more vertical space is better for almost everything bar movies.

If you can't go IPS, get the cheapest that looks like it will suit you

Amazon.com: Buying Choices: ASUS VN247H-P 24-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor

That's out of stock but available here;

Newegg.com - ASUS VN247H-P Black 23.6" 1ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 80,000,000:1 Built-in Speakers

I am seriously impressed with this sub $200 monitor. Brand new, thinnest bezel and 1ms response time, 2 HDMI and no DVI or DP. I think this is targeted towards gamers & multi monitor more than any other display.

You're right you won't find any yet. I'm speaking from my experience with previous Asus monitors and the technical details available that no monitor in this price range equals. I think I found the display for my next eyfinity build.

I can tell you right away that color accuracy and off angle views won't impress because TN panels twice as expensive don't either but that's the trade off. I'll link a review here when I find one and I appreciate any help.

Do you think the colors will be that bad? The main reason why i want to get a new monitor is color, but it cant be that awful right? I also have a friend with one of those expensive color calibrators (if that helps)

TN panel will never be great for colour.

Calibration will improve the colors, but there isn't much you can do.

So that brings us back to square one. What will you be using your monitor for in order of preference?

Gaming (refresh rates, response time)
Movies / TV / Video (brightness and overall picture and screen size)
Photo Work and Editing (color accuracy)
Office / Internet (Overall picture and screen size)
