Default Best Monitor for 250$ or less

Hey I want a monitor for less then 250$ that is quality and the same time sexy and not butt ugly like the view sonic monitorsamd i am currently caught between two monitors :

1.The LG one looks pretty decent

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824005066

2.The Samsung monitor looks good and new and its got brand name to back it up.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824001080


So you decide sicne the LG is a tad cheaper then the samsung.

i dont know why you guys like newegg so much, they are over priced for everything. heres a great monitor at a great price, ill give you another link if you dont like wide screen

and personally i think Acer is one of the best monitor companys out there. ive always been happy with them.

The LG as an 8 ms and its 224, the samsung is 5 ms and its all the way up at 280, the one i showed you is 5 ms and its 199 and a much better brand then those 2.

bah, but its a gay 19 inch widescreen... 19 inch widescreen is incredibly small in person... personally i wouldnt go any lower than 20 inch for widescreen... 19 is just... way too small

Didn't read the whole thread but I bought a 19" BenQ from Newegg for that price and LOVE IT!!! It has a 2ms response time and no dead pixels. I highly recommend it. I would also suggest staying away from widescreen unless you watch a lot of movies on your computer. Not enough games support it for me to grab one.

I'd get this

ViewSonic VX922 19" w/ 2ms response

It's a little bit more than you were wanting to spend though.
