Hey guys, I'm looking for a new LCD screen, I'm not very experienced with LCD monitors sofar, I'm used to CRT and the odd 5 year old dell or such.

Im looking for one with a 2-5ms response rate
HDMI input
Full HD
21.5 - 22"

Branded(I don't want a benq etc, I'm looking for along the ASUS/Samsung line)
price limit is $350.00

~Can suggest things outside these parameters but I need pro's/con's


Thanks, Joe

One of the only good monitors with HDMI

The screen quality is excellent, you can read reviews on the web

Viewsonic are ok. I'm using one here (VX2260wm). Bloody good monitor (22'). HDMI, VGA and DVI. And audio in and out. I use the DVI for the PC and the HDMI is connected to the Xbox. Since, it looks pretty crappy on the TV. Its too dark

I've never seen any problems with an LG screen - not one. Own two, they are both great. Excellent warranties. Bear in mind these are all less than two years old - never had any experience with older screens.

This (http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentview.asp?partid=8524) is an LG 21.5" (well 22", they have honest marketing). 2ms response, HDMI, DVI, VGA. 1080p. I use this as my main PC screen and it's great, same thing as the one Blam recommended but smaller.
