Hi guys, in the market for a new monitor, so many available though. I could do with a hand in choosing one.

Needs to meet the following:

Be below 275
have at least 20,000:1 contrast ratio
<2.5 ms responce time
1920x1200 resolution
at least 22" but preferably 24" or more

Have seen this but worried about strange spec although reviews are pretty good.

I did a lot of homework before I landed on this one:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-Details.asp?EdpNo=4605327&sku=L49-2314&srkey=W2353V

Newegg has none in stock...but there are 307 user reviews...it averages 5 eggs (excellent). Even at TD...there are enough reviews for you to get a feel. I have had the monitor for over two months now...it is incredible. Excellent color depth, fast and all the features are excellent. A bit of a learning curve on how to use the controls...but once you get the hang...it is really simple...cost won't break you either. LG is one of the best panel manufacturers out there right now

Good Luck

Bob

that looks pretty good and the prices are great. I'm after a monitor with 1920x1200 res though really.

Any other suggestions please?

I am in the market for the same thing. A lot of people on here have the Asus one, but I do not know if it will meet your price requirement.

Doesn't 275 = about $421 US dollars?
