I have a 22" ViewSonic... it's about 2-3 years old now. It aint bad, but it just doesn't pack the color punch I like, and since I watch a lot of live concert DVDs and movies on here it's kind of an issue to me.
I'm looking to upgrade, but not exactly tomorrow. If I stumble across a 100 dollar bill that's one thing, but logically speaking I'll probably wait until after Christmas to upgrade.
I'm looking for a 24" with 1080p. I've compared a few... My mom just got a 22" Acer and it is really bright and has nice colors to it. I looked at one on NewEgg that's 340 (which is about 40 bucks over what I'd like to pay, to be honest). I know limiting myself to a budget of 300 is restricting, but it's a... let's call it a "flexible" 300 dollar budget... but 340 is kinda pushing it.
Then, I came across this.
Newegg.com - ASUS VW246H Black 24" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 (ASCR 20000:1) Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors
Hmm... not bad. Reviews look decent too, but we all know how NewEgg reviews are. Some of the reviews seemed to be from pretty knowledgeable people though, so who knows.
Anyway, what do you guys think? What brands would you recommend most? I think I'm going to stay away from ViewSonic this time... my monitor isn't bad by any stretch of the imagination, but when I watch videos, the contrast (and yes, I've adjusted settings) just seems to be... not all there... Great with games, great with regular stuff, but movies.. ehh...
To recap, I'm looking at around 300$ budget, preferably NewEgg, 24" or larger, 1080p.
What do you folks suggest?
