Default Help deciding on a monitor.

So I've been considering buying a 24'' and just wanted your thoughts on which one to get and if its worth getting.

I would go with the samsung if you have the money. They have that no dead pixel policy. And I hear the monitors are amazing. But the LG one looks just as good... So if you rather spend less, then get that one. It also has a 3 year on site warranty according to the website also, which is nice.

Both good monitors, I think you will be happy with whatever one you choose.

I think I am getting an LG soon
