Default the right LCD

So Im looking at buying an LCD and I was aiming for a 19 inch. There are a few things about LCDs I dont understand like the brightness rating and contrast ratios. Im in canada so I shop on tigerdirect.ca
I narrowed down to these 3 LCDs, I would be using it for basically everything from gaming to typing to movies.

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...205241&CatId=0
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...271349&CatId=0

The price difference between these is a mere 30 or 40 bucks so the price does not matter. I was thinking of the LG with the 4 ms response time, am I making the right choice? anybody ever had problems ordering from tigerdirect?

Regards,
Andrew

That LG 4ms seems great to me. As far as I know, TigerDirect is very trustworthy so you shouldn't have anything to worry about when buying from them.

That's my two cents...

I would go with the LG (4 ms); it looks like a good LCD for that price, and Acer is another good brand to buy so the 3rd choice is also a good one.

Higher the contrast ratio the better...so if those specs are true those LG's are a steal.

Yeah Id go with a widescreen display LCD though, when you play games (if you do) widescreen 16:9 is the best looking ratio to play it in. Thats a fact boys.

If you can try and find one of those on tigerdirect. Its your money though.
