Does it have to be from Bestbuy? I wouldn't recommend getting a monitor with a TN panel; they look very crappy compared to s-ips or s-pva. :)

A bit pricey, but looks very good.

This (http://www.trustedreviews.com/monitors/review/2006/09/13/BenQ-FP241W-24in-Widescreen-Monitor/p1) is the monitor I have and it looks much much better than my brother's G2400W.

Heh just found out it has two usb slots on its side.. :D Didn't know that!

I would say get the one in my sig but they are so back ordered it's not going to happen for a while. I can't even find it for sale on Dells site.

I am also kind of gingerly looking for a monitor. 24 inch. 1900x1200. Around $400 or less. Mostly for gaming and random computer tasks.

1650x1050 = 1732500 pixels

1920x1080 = 2073600 pixels

that means it has to render 341100 more pixels, so of course there will be performance penalty.

But with 295 you shouldn't worry.

16:10 vs 16:9, well thats up to you.

for me a 16:9 (1920x1080) 24 monitor looks small compared to 16:10 (1920x1200) 24 monitor.

Also looking for a monitor but looking more in the 27" range.

Would be used for gaming, TV and DVD viewing.

Any suggestions? Would like to keep price aroun $400.

Thx in advance.

The 2209WA is the only IPS screen they sell right now. The rest are either TN (poor image quality) or PVA (high price and input lag).

If you want a good 24" screen that's good for gaming and has great image quality for a reasonable price, you'll pretty much just have to wait.

LG has supposedly been working on putting out some more E-IPS panels like the Dell 22", but I haven't heard anything about them lately.

I really want a 1920x1200 24" but I'm not buying one unless I get an amazing deal on a TN (under $150 for a decent one :p) or an IPS for ~$300.

The Dells are notorious for their huge input lag - my Benq is better, but far from perfect. If you want to avoid input lag you have no option but stay with CRT.

do some googling, Dell 2209WA (IPS panel) actually has 0ms input lag, while most monitors on the market have between 15-40ms input lag.

I was just commenting on captnkill's comment on affordable 24 inchers. The 22 incher is a great display no doubt about it. :)

I am guessing this is a TN panel. The price is quite good though
