22 inch-since the difference is not much

28-11-2008, 07:32 PM
The main difference between the 2 is 1900x1200 and 1680x1080, any way i was asking which one out of the two of each both the 22 inch and 24 inch i should go with.

Are all the monitors on Price Spy, all the computer monitors that we can get in New Zealand, cause i just looked at the LG site and they have around 45 monitors.

No not every dealer uses price spy. A couple of things to watch out for when useing price spy, dose the price include GST and Freight. Ascent don't use Price Spy and they don't charge freight check them out. Just got a new ViewSonic Monitor from them, see sig, which I'm very happy with. Ordered it on Monday morning got it Tuesday lunch time. Some of the products they sell are not the cheapest, but they are a reputable company. Been buying of them since 2004.

I recently bought the LG w2252tq on recommendation from Atomic magazine (93%), for $370 (including freight) from Computer Lounge and it's excellent. Highly recommended. Comes with a DVI cable which I understand isn't common, meaning it's another expense if you don't already have one.

My Viewsonic came with a DVI cable.

I think im going to go with a 24" so i have the option of playing games in 1900x1200 or just viewing the computer in that resolution, if games start to lag then ill turn it down to 1600x1080. Older games like CSS ill be able to play at max max settings.

Do you think by next year that the 24"s will be alot lower in price even if a new series is out.

Now all i need is to choose a 24" Does it need to have high Contrast Ratio for gaming? and is higher the brightness the better? I need HDMI ports though, any further recommendations?
