Default 2 more screens, help!!

ok guys, ive narrowed down my selections to either the SAMSUNG 226BW or the LG M228WA

links:
PC World: Cheap SAMSUNG TFT Monitors - SAMSUNG 226BW Flat Screen TFT Monitor

PC World: Cheap LG TFT Monitors - LG M228WA Flat Screen TFT Monitor


they both have the same size, contrast ratio, response time, and pretty much price.

the difference is, that the LG has SO many more inputs than the samsung, including a tv tuner.

now i know the samsung has brilliant reviews, but i cant find any for the lg. also, im not sure if the lg has hd-blah-blah what ever it is, as another forum i found said that it didnt have the correct socket or something.

any ideas guys? (and girls)

thanks in advance,

hazza

This sounds stupid, but I hate dell so much that every time i looked at that bloody logo with that 'E' at 45 degrees i would just be really unhappy. lol.

SAMSUNG FOR THE WINN. Also their harddisks are top-notch (better than seagates IMO)
