The Samsung:

The Westy:

Ok, well the Dell seems like the best bet.

Best price.
Good warranty.
Same specs as the Samsung.

Anything bad about it? I dont want to pay for the ultrasharp, i dont need all that stuff.
What about the panel? what type?
Whats the best type?

Samsung has by far the best customer service, if I were in the market for a 24".. hell any monitor or TV right now I would definately go with them

Both of them look like really great monitors, you won't regret buying either one. I am just partial to Samsung

The Samsung 245BW in your link is a lower end model that uses cheap TN panel. The Dell is much better, which uses the same panel as the Samsung 245T.

Sorry, I didn't click on your Dell link until now. I thought it's the 2407. The E248WF and Samsung 245WB uses the same panel. Customer service is the only difference now, and Dell has great customer service.

I'll vouch for Dells customer service also. They've been fantastic.
