    This is the monitor that I have. No complaints. I was gonna buy the Hanns G 28" but i'm more of a quality name brand guy so i went with the Asus.

    What are the differences in the Asus model line between the VW, VH, and VK ?

    The Asus webpage won't load for me.

    Well, the VK has a built in webcam. The VW and VH are very similar, probably VW is the older model and VH are the newer ones. They are, once again, almost exclusively a 16:9 display, with only a couple 26" models being 1920x1200.

    oh ok. thank you. I don't see a new for a webcam so def don't need the VK.

    I'lll check on the price differences between the VW and VH. Though all the reccomendations are for the VW 24 and 26 inch models.

    dominant1: eer.... what's the point exactly of going to a 27" over a 24" or so? if you ask me.... going to a larger screen that doesn't have a higher resolution would equate to a bit less detail, seeing as it's still the same amount of pixels. Yes.... probably not noticable in the least.... but you're also paying like $400 more for an extra 3" of real estate. At that point, why not go 30"?

    Well the difference in price between the Asus 24 and the Asus 26 is like $30. I'm more than happy with a 24" though.

    First of all, I switched to 1920x1080 about a week ago and every game I tried is supported perfectly, except of Warcraft III which is just too old I think^^

    But...
    If it's possible (that is, if your pc is near enough to the tv to get it plugged in) try playing on that one! Unfortunately I can't afford a full HD TV but my dad has one, I played on it and let me tell you, that's just awsome :) You get bigger screen size with still a perfectly sharp image due to the resolution. Just give it a try, I enjoyed playing on the tv more than on anything I played on so far... and you could save the money for the new PC screen :p

    Hey dude. I was looking for the same thing as you. I didn't read through this whole thread, but I have a BenQ G2400WD. It has no built in speakers, 1920x1200, 1:1 pixel mapping, 2-5ms response time, and HDMI port, a VGA port, and a DVI port. it's 24" 16:10, and I've had it for a few months now. I moved to it from a 19", and I am beyond satisfied. I would definitely check it out. My previous monitor was a Viewsonic. It has a sturdy base, with tilt adjustment, but not height adjustment. I'm not sure BenQ still sells this particular model, but i'm sure there's one out there still, or a newer version of the same monitor. Check it out.

    doesn't matter really. they're both digital connections. the only real benefit of HDMI over DVI is that it's able to carry sound as well. So unless your monitor has speakers, and you actually are feeling like using those instead of/on top of whatever other speakers you may have, there isn't really anything different between the two.

    yea.... i went from a 21" to a 24". freakin sweet. Not to mention my Gateway FHD2400 still has every input under the sun unlike the revised FHD2401... which i think only has DVI, VGA, and HDMI. my FHD2400 has that, as well as S-Video, Component, and Composite.

    ^ he speaks the truth. Well, kinda. In that I mean I went from a 21 to a 24 and I couldn't beleive that I had thought 21 was big enough. Now that I got a 24 I am totally satisfied. No need for bigger for me.

    same here, Scooby. As you could tell from my previous posts... i'm more fond of getting a monitor of which has a screen of the lowest size possible for a different resolution.... or at least close to it. Just think there's more detail in a 24" 1920x1200 monitor than there would be in a 28" or so 1920x1200 monitor. And yeah.... 30"'ers just cost too damn much.

    Looks like my funding for a new 24" monitor has dried up. Will have to stay with the Acer X241W's constant no signal issues for the time being.
