    Greetings,

    My current Samsung SyncMaster P2450 is living on its last days - Or so I think! It has been flickering from time to time and the menu suddenly opened and closed. Also, yesterday it suddenly smelled burned from the inside.

    Since yesterday there haven't been any problems so what is wrong I do not know.

    Anyway, just in case I would like to look for a new monitor and I was thinking of upgrading from 24" to 27".

    I have been looking at the Samsung 27" SyncMaster SB550V LS27B550VS/EN.

    What do you guys think?

    I've got the B2712HDS and it's really nice for a TN panel and the stand is excellent. I like the professional matte finish also. So I'm eager to recommend their LED backlit version of the same monitor.

    To be honest I am somekind of afraid moving to manufacturers that I don't know (or never heard of). I really like Samsung and their design. You may wanna call me a fanboy when it comes to this ;)

    Back to the recommended monitor. I guess this is the monitor you are talking about? I see that the respons time is 8 ms which is too slow for me. Sorry I didn't mentioned it before, but my goal is 2 ms because of the gaming.

    If money isn't an issue, look into some of the new 120Hz 27 inch monitors. Doing some research myself on them since I'll be getting one if I get a bit more cash together.

    Currently it seems the Samsung is a bit better in IQ and the ASUS is better in terms of input lag.
