Default Buying a new 22-24 inch monitor

Hey guys. I'm trying to decide which sub $190CAD monitor to buy. I've narrowed it down to these monitors, but I'am open to suggestions if there is other monitors I should be checking out.

BenQ V2410 24in Widescreen LED LCD w/ HDMI at Memory Express Computers

tp://ncix.com/products/?sku=35314&vpn=W2442PA%2DBF&manufacture=LG%20Elect ronics

BenQ VW2420H 24in Widescreen LED LCD VA Panel w/ HDMI at Memory Express Computers

LG W2243T-PF 21.5in Widescreen LCD, Black at Memory Express Computers

ASUS VH236H 23 Widescreen LCD Monitor Black 1920X1080 16:9 2MS 20000:1DC HDMI DVI VGA With Speakers - DirectCanada

ASUS VH242H 23.6IN Widecreen LCD Black 1920X1080 5ms 20000:1 HDMI DVI-D Speaker SPDIF Out Monitor - DirectCanada

Side note: The monitor must also be decent for gaming. Thanks in advance!

Basically, they're all fine. I wouldn't go for the 21.5" LG one (since you can get bigger ones).

If you can't narrow it down any further, I'd look at professional (and to a lesser extent user) reviews for each of them (just google the monitor's manufacturer and model, followed by the word review) to see if there are any particular flaws in them that you can't tell by looking at the specs.

I would lean towards Asus or LG as opposed to BenQ. Not sure about everyone elses opinion but BenQ is considered an off brand.

I've never used BenQ personally but from what I've heard they're good value for money (i.e. not as bad quality as you'd expect).
