    I'm thinking of upgrading my monitor to a 22" one, mainly for Movies->Browsing->Gaming in that priority.
    I zeroed in on Samsung 2233SW(22" Full HD) but I came across another model 2233SW Plus(21.5" Full HD).Only differences being screen size,Contrast ratio and the 1K price diff.
    Samsung 2233SW - 22" Full HD - DC 15,000:1 (1,000:1) - 9.8K.
    Samsung 2233SW Plus - 21.5" Full HD - DC 50,000:1 (1,000:1) - 10.8K.
    I am confused which one to go for keeping in mind the price diff and the fact that no DVI cable is bundled so that would be an additional buy.
    BTW how much does a good DVI-D cable cost??

    A DVI cable should cost you around 200-350 bucks. I think you can go for 2233 SW only. And I doubt about the availibility of 2233 SW plus.

    Also have a look at the AOC Fovi F22 and the BenQ E2200HD.

    Both are good monitors, especially the AOC one. But my personal recommendation would certainly be the DELL 2209 WA! Its expensive arnd 16k but is the best 22" monitor you can find anywhere.

    @Ashu
    Isn't 2233SW 22"?? Don't confuse me dude,it's specs in samsung site shows 2233SW is a 22" one,where as sw plus is 21.5".
    @Techalomaniac
    Availabilty of AOC is a big issue here and i'm not sure of Benq. So I was left with either Dell or samsung.Dell isn't Full HD right and also Looking at the price diff I zeroed in on samsung

    ^ yup u are right Dell 2209WA isn't full HD, but it is very good. Get the 2233SW as user feedback is good and also Samsung is a great brand. :)

    Both are as bad as they can be when it comes to after sales service and picture quality in in comparison to the Samsung 2233SW

    I disagree about the AOC Fovi F22. Some forum members have bought it and they seemed very happy with it. I dunno abt after sales service. But nonetheless, the 2233SW is pretty good! :)

    I have decided to go for 2233SW, I have some queries.

    1.I read some reviews about a "Not Optimum Mode" message in samsung monitors. I want to know more about this.

    2. I have a nVidia 7300 GT (256MB) GFX card Link, According to the website my card should supports 1920x1080.
    but I read this from newegg customer feedback.
    I am concerned about this.
