The title explains it really. Since building a new computer, the older monitor may need replacement as it is showing its age a little now. All I need is a monitor with good color accuracy and preferably IPS. It will probably be 1080p within this budget which is fine. Main uses are Photoshop and Adobe Bridge, no gaming involved. Some suggestions which I've been given are this one:

And this one

I'm open to suggestions between these two monitors or any other monitors.

If the unit has HDMI output, a small 32 inch TV with 1080 capable specs would fir the bill nicely.

It actually has to be relatively small as there isn't much room on the the place the PC sits on. The GPU is a GT 730 2GB and it has HDMI, DVI and VGA. What about those monitors which I posted in the OP?

This is not my area of specialty.  That being said, the thread on this very forum entitled, ?: Monitor recommendation, from late April may contain some information and suggestions you would find helpful.

The budget is not enough for a specialist "prosumer" model, so I think the two you link to are about the best you will get for the money.  They're both IPS monitors, which are superior to TN film monitors in colour reproduction and viewing angle.

 

Both are reviewed:

http://www.trustedreviews.com/lg-23mp68vq-review-image-quality-and-verdict-page-2

 

I would guess from the reviews the LG may need a bit more tweaking of the factory settings to get the best result.

So out of those two, which one would be the best? I know they're very similar but are there other factors to involve?

Keeping to the budget, I would choose the ASUS unit.  I use an ACER K222HQL unit on my PC and do extensive video and photo work on it.  It was $129. USD two years ago so I know better and cheaper units can be had.  ASUS is a well known brand and  have good customer ratings.

You want the best colour accuracy.  Looking at the reviews I'm leaning towards the Asus.  Another review here from a photography perspective - http://www.color-management-guide.com/asus-vc239h-monitor-review.html  All attributes are positively rated for the price paid.

Yeah, the I'll go with the VC239H although I'm sure you couldn't go wrong with either monitor.

 

Thanks  :thumbup2:

Dell's Ultrasharp monitors are very good for the price
