Default Recommend me a new monitor!

Hi, I'm in looking to purchase a monitor of good quality. I will be connecting my PS3 to it and also use it as my desktop monitor.

My budget is £200, ($330).

I've narrowed my search down to a couple of monitors and would like some advice from anyone who has greater knowledge than me about them.

Samsung P2450H 24-inch Widescreen Full HD 1920 x 1080p Monitor (2ms, HDMI, Rose Red): Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

Asus 24-inch VH242H Wide Gaming LCD TFT Monitor (5ms, Full HD, HDMI, Black): Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

PS. I know on that link the it says that the Asus is 5ms, but on the Amazon.com it says it's 2ms which is slightly confusing me, perhaps just a mistake on the UK site.
Both seem to be popular and receive good reviews, would one of these be a good choice? Is there a better monitor out there within my budget?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Different companies measure their latency differently. They are generally not an important measure when buying monitors (unless they're >15ms).

Thanks for your response. Both of the monitors have been out since 2009, is there not a more latest model out? Would you say the Samsung is as good as it gets within my budget?
