Default Deciding between two monitors..

So, yeah, as the topic says I've been trying to decide between two monitors and I can't seem to make up my mind. I'm hopping to get some other peoples opinions to help me out.

Here are the two monitors:

Sam's Club-23" Samsung Widescreen Monitor with HDTV Tuner

and

HP - 23" Widescreen Flat-Panel TFT-LCD Monitor - Black - 2310m

The monitor will be used mostly for gaming. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I would say the HP Monitor (by reading specs, it seems to be better ).

Well really the difference is that the Samsung isnt just a monitor but an LED LCD HDTV as well with a built in Digital Tuner. So really all you would have to do is plug in a source and watch TV right from that monitor as well as use it for your PC purposes as well.

So the question comes down to do you need something like that or just a straight monitor? If you need just a straight monitor then what the Samsung is offering really isnt needed.

We'll hop with ya!

I'd rather go with the Samsung. They are better made than any HP I've seen. They kick butt. I should know. I own a SyncMaster 204B. Never had a problem with it, after getting it second hand off a good friend.

I have a Samsung 2333HD monitor/TV and it's great. It's got awesome picture as both a monitor and a TV.

I also have a Samsung. They seem to popular here on T-F :P But I can completely recommend mine. I've seen a couple of HPs, but I can't really comment in any helpful amount of detail.
