    Default Help with monitor dilemma plz

    Hey guys, have a question. i just bought a new ASUS VS278 27" monitor. My other is a Samsung 27C230 from a few years ago. I am wanting to get a 3rd but dont know which one is the better of the 2. Any help? I mainly use it for gaming and general internet use. Any help would be appreciated.

    I would go with The Asus being the newest of the two for that reason plus you will definitely have two that match and down the road if need be
    buy the third if you have issues matching across the three just my thoughts

    Probably a day late and $100 short, but for what it's worth, I agree. ASUS is a great choice.

    I had a Samsung and 2 ASUS for awhile, and the biggest issue I had was slight differences in the aspect ratio/resolution. After awhile the one that was different drove me crazy, so I updated to all 3 matching Asus 23" monitors.

    It's hard to beat the price/performance of the ASUS monitor line.
