I could play on my 42" sony, but its better used to watch tv on. I cant even really deal with a 30" display. you just have to be so far away from a screen that big.

I been looking at monitors again..

Which one do you think is better?

Dell 24" Widescreen Flat Panel Monitor

or that one
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 245BW Black 24" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor with Height Adjustment 400 cd/m2 1000:1 (DC 3000:1) - LCD Monitors

The cost about the same. Actually Dell is cheaper.

But which company making newer Monitors?
If you had this choice.. which one would you pick?

I been looking for good monitors lately too. The same SAMSUNG 245BW 24" but now im leaning towards this Samsung SM-2493HM 24" Iits appears to be practically the same except its has 3x the contrast ratio. Highest one ever seen for not such a ridiculous price. There is a good price difference between them but i think either one is a solid choice. HDMI fcourse

I think 245BW is also 3000:1 the contrast ratio. Or at least Digital contrast ratio.. I think.
