Default New Monitor

Hey guys,

I want to get a new monitor within the next month to replace my little 17" Acer. I want to spend around ~$160. I want ~23" and at least 1080.

any ideas?

That is cool. Nice monitor.

If you want to pay a little more for an IPS monitor, and LED, I have my eye on this one:

Newegg.com - ASUS ML239H Black 23" 5ms IPS Panel Full HD HDMI LED BackLight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 ASCR 50,000,000:1 (3,000:1)
$209.99

But Yerf's is good, too.

That looks good. Acer monitors are nice, especially in the higher range.

I'm using this one, x2:
Newegg.com - Hanns·G HH-251HPB Black 24.6" 2ms HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 15000:1(800:1) Built-in Speakers

Worth it if you can scratch up the extra.

I'll probably end up with an Acer or a Hanns because they seem to be excellent for the price.

I have no complaints. There is a little light bleed on a completely black screen, but I never have a completely black screen unless it is a game loading or something. That's all I have on it.
