    Default New LCD

    Hello Guys,

    I am in the market for a new LCD monitor. i am looking for something in the 22'-24' range. Anything bigger wont fit my stand and will be just too big. I am completely ignorant when it comes to monitors.
    Any advice or tips would be appreciated .


    Thanks,

    Joe

    First things first, we need to know what you will be using this monitor for. Is it for gaming? Normal web surfing? Movie viewing and editing? Will you be doing extensive graphic or web design?

    Also, what is your budget? All of these will be hepful in figuring out what the best monitor is for your money and needs.

    Since you will be using your monitor for gaming mostly, here are the monitors that I would recommend: (Each link will be to the monitor on newegg)

    BenQ G2400WD 24", 1920 x 1200 resolution, 1.9ms input lag - ~$360 (This is the monitor that I plan on getting next)

    LG L227WTG-PF 22" 2ms response time, 1680 x 1050 resolution, 0ms input lag - ~$260 (Probably the "best" gaming monitor on the market)

    ASUS VW246H 24" 2ms response time, 1920 x 1080 resolution, HDMI - ~$260 (Sorry don't have the input lag specs on this one)

    These are the main 3 that I would suggest that are in your price range. The BenQ would be the best option here if only for the maximum resolution, and clarity. But, the price and performance of the LG can't be ignored. This is just a rough list of ones that do the job and do it well, with as little backlight bleed as possible.

    Hopw this helps you out.

    The reason that I didn't recommend that monitor is because of the 12 ms input lag, and that is is known for having RTA artifacting. Make sure that you disable the RTA in the monitors menu panel to avoid the artifacting issues.

    It is also known for having a significant backlight bleed, that's why I won't use it.
