Default buying one of two new LCD monitor

Hey guys, I'm buying a new LCD monitor. I have decided that DELL is the make. I won't change my mind. they get awesome reviews and have awesome prices.

Now the two I'm looking at would be:

Dell W2600 26-inch LCD TV
http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1759,1772583,00.asp


Screen Size (Diagonal): 26 inches
Video Inputs: Component, Composite, DVI, RF, S-Video
PC Interfaces: Analog VGA and Dual-mode (DVI-I)
Native Resolution: 1280 x 768 pixels
Supported EDTV and HDTV Resolutions: 720p
Built-in TV Tuner (Type): NTSC
Rated Maximum Viewing Angle: Horizontal: 170 degrees
Rated Maximum Viewing Angle: Vertical: 170 degrees
Rated Contrast Ratio: 700:1
Individual Settings per Input: Yes


Dell Widescreen UltraSharp 2405FPW
http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1759,1774271,00.asp


Screen Size: 24 inches
Native Resolution: 1920 x 1200 pixels x pixels
Supported EDTV and HDTV Resolutions: 1080i pixels
Aspect Ratio: 16:10
Video Inputs: Component, Composite, DVI, S-Video
PC Interfaces: Analog VGA and Dual-mode (DVI-I)
Built-in TV Tuner: None
Pixel Response Time (Gray to Gray): 16 milliseconds
Rated Contrast Ratio: 1000:1
Brightness (Max): 500 cd/m^2




OK this monitor will be used as a pc monitor and HD TV.
The 24" has a bit better specs but is 2" smaller. I like the 26" size., but I like the 24" higher res. I can care less of the cost difference between them. I have already tested the 26" and I'm quite happy with its performance and visual quality, and I know the 24" will look just as good most likely better.

so I'm having a hard time deciding which to buy. which one would you buy if you were me? and please do not tell me none and list another LCD because these two are the only ones I'm considering. thanks!

Buy 'em both and look at 'em side-by-side.

Then send me the loser.
