Extremely confused on buying monitor

DEE

Broken In
I want to buy a monitor (yeah.. Full HD) of 22-24 inches size.

Usage
- Reading PDFs and development: HENCE, text should be very smooth and eye strain should be none
- Watching movies: SHOULD give good display from different vieweing angle so that I can grap popcorn and watch from bed
- In future when I buy a laptop (with DVI/HDMI) or DTH(with HDMI) or DVD player (with HDMI), should connect easily!
currently, I just have analog input.
- Gaming: I love to Play Serious Sam and waiting for Serious SAM III (after completing I and II .. yeepeee)

Budget: 15K max :eek:


Confusions::-|
- LCD v/s LED - Dell v/s Samsung v/s Benq - Response times.. etc etc etc

Shortlisted Models with so far research:

BENQ G2420HD: 2ms, HDMI, DVI, 24", 10.5K
BENQ E2420HD - G2420HD + 1 extra HDMI + Speakers 12.5K
Samsung P2370MS - 5ms, HDMI/DVI/Components/LineIn/Out, Speakers 13.5K
Dell u2311 - 8ms, 22", no HDMI, IPS panel, <15K
Dell S2309W - 5ms, 23", HDMI, <15K

All above monitors are LCD. I m not sure of LED ones. please let me know if there is any LED <15k and really better than above monitors.

Guys having any of above monitor pleeeeease give their opinions (pros/cons).. Help me out! I am going nuts

Any other model welcome!

you got a quote of 13.5 K for the Samsung P2370MS? sweet price i suppose. friend bought it for 15K a few weeks back - good monitor

Also take a look at Samsung Syncmaster 240 HD

i suggest u go for the Dell u2311, @13750

samsung konect is not ips panel. so may almost have to sit in line with the monitor when u use it as tv for optimum viewing. so that is a pain.

if ur primary criteria is for computer rather than connectivity, then i wud say dell ips.

and IMO dell is better than samsung, and too much heat is dissipated from my samsung 2033 monitor compared to dell.

there are digit members who have benq, wait for their opinion, and lately benq is also doing great though a little cheap.

while LED backlit displays give stunning blacks and superb contrast, they have trouble with viewing angles. IPS panels give near 180 degreee viewing angle and very good picture quality. pick one according to your need. if for tv viewing, better pick IPS panel.

strangely my existing 17" LG Flatron purchased 8 years ago has no viewing angles issue and supports what we call today Full HD dimension 1920X1080... May be 7-8 yrs later there will be a new screen type with another Full HD of same 1080p :) But my personal LG flatron pains my eyes now after an hour. Bay be bcoz I got used to LCD at office:(

So far I can see everyone encouraging for IPS.. I heared it has 8ms response time which is not good for gamers but may be thats too a minute detail to see. I am still eagerly waiting for BENQ people andother comments..

thanks so far guys!

Can't say for gaming as I havent tried yet but the color reproduction is awesome and you can watch it at any angle.
