Hello Guys,

I have a 22" Dell S2209W monitor which I had purchased over 2 years ago. I am looking for a new monitor now. That monitor was ok, nothing great. Infact I was running a batman movie in my new Vaio laptop yesterday and my desktop. The difference in quality was easily visible. The white and good colours reflected in my laptop LCD screen was diff that what monitor showed. It's white was not white and quailty of output was so so.

My main purposes :

- movies/tv shows
- software development work
- gaming but not often

- Max Budget $300
- Size : 23" or 24"

I have a vaio laptop (1600x900) and at times when I am at home I would want to connect my laptop to the monitor so that I can use it to work on my office documents etc. And other times my monitor would anyways be connected to my PC. So a monitor with more ports specially HDMI would be nice.

The brands I would consider is DELL, Samsung, LG & Viewsonic. I am keen on dell ultrasharp monitor.

For e.g. DellTM UltraSharp U2312HM is costing $290 while 24" is costing $390.

What should I do for ? I want a very good display. I live outside US so sites like newegg etc won;t be helpful in terms of price.

I will appreciate your help.

Thanks,

Cheers,
GR

You could do what I do. I use my 32" HDTV for my computer display, OTA TV, Satellite TV, Media player, BluRay/DVD player. Just make sure it has enough inputs for your needs.

One display for everything.
One remote

Nice big letters on the screen

As for monitors, Since you seem to be sensitive to the way the display looks I would suggest taking the laptop with you and hooking it up to display model of the monitor you are thinking about and see how it looks.

Thanks a lot Roger. The thing is I already have a 46" LED HDTV in my room. So basically I am looking for a PC Monitor. It will be connected to my PC all the time though at times I would like to connect my laptop to it.

How is the dell option 23" which I meantioned in my post ?
