Default Help! to decide new monitor for Christmas present before December 30

Merry Christmas to all!!

I need some help, I'm trying to decide between these two monitors
Envision G22LWk 22-inch LCD or Acer AL2223Wd Black-Silver 22"

I was thinking going with the Acer but I'm not sure about that brand, the major difference that i could notice was the Contrast Ratio with Acer having a 800:1 & Envision with 700:1.

If anyone got one of those two I would like to hear pros and cons about them. I will use the monitor mostly for games and other typical stuff like pr0n anyway any help would appreciate greatly.

Thnx in advance

Alex

Well, I would go with the acer because it has a little better contrast ratio.

They both have a decent response time, 5ms

I have been looking again around and I'm thinking in getting this one

SCEPTRE x22wg-Gamer Black 22"
or the Acer AL2223Wd Black-Silver 22"

Do you think that I should get the SCEPTRE ??

Thnx in advance.

I would get the scpetre, the more the contrast ratio the better. That is my personal opinion anyway. It still has the same 5ms response time.

Thats exactly what I was thinking is only a couple of bucks more and have HDMI, 2 USB 2.0 conector, e.c.t.

I think I will go with the Sceptre, as soon as it arrive I will test it and tell you guys about it

Thnx for all your help is much appreciated.

Merry Christmas !! & a very HAPPY New Year
