I am in the market for a new (would be my first LCD) monitor. I love the glossy screens because I think they aid in conrast and overall clarity. I need help though. The only one I have seen in store is the HP w2207h. I want opinions though.

Here are my needs:

-22" LCD
-5ms or less response time (I game after all)
-Glossy screen
-Be able to scale incoming lower resolutions

Anybody have any opinions?

I have the HP w2207 and I love it. It has everything you've listed, including 1:1 pixel mapping. It's probably the best monitor with a TN panel you can get. I also heard good things about the Samsung 2232GW.

Looks like the Gateway is a worthwile look too.

Can either of you confirm is say, a 1440 x 900 resolution is sent to the screen if the monitor will scale to to fit the entire panel?

Yea it scales to any I have tried, just tried 1440x900, and it worked.

If you're looking for a 22'' screen, get the HP w2207.

If you're looking for a 24'' screen, get the HP w2408h. Both monitors I have owned and they have been great!

The difference between the 22 and 24'' is that the 24'' has 400cd/m2 brightness (+100 from the 22'') and a light sensor which dims it when the ambient light goes down. It also has an HDMI port and it has +2 usb ports (+2 from the 22'')

Both monitors have built in speakers,.

Yea and if you live in the US Best Buy carries them at the same lowest price I found online. That way you can see it in action before you buy. If there is a better 24" for the price I paid for this one it has to be amazing.
