Windows 7: New monitor

New monitor

Cannot afford one just yet but in case my son wants to buy me a birthday present or I win the Lotto beore Chistams I am looking at a reasonably priced 27" monitor around $250 - $280.

I have picked some out and wonder if anyone has any thoughts on these taking into consideration my budget and the fact that out here the gear is either very expensive or just reasonable for that sort of money.


I always buy from this site and their range is fair but nothing like Newegg for example. I have nearly all 24" at the moment and my lean is towards the Benq but the Samsung looks good too. Am not wanting audio just decent graphics but opinions please.

BenQ GL2750HM 27in Widescreen LED Monitor [GL2750HM] - $249.00 : PC Case Gear

LG E2750V 27in LED Widescreen Monitor [LG-E2750V-PN] - $279.00 : PC Case Gear

Samsung S27B550V 27in Widescreen LED Monitor [S27B550VS] - $279.00 : PC Case Gear

Don't rule out these two:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236302

Acer H274HL 27 Class Widescreen LED Monitor - 1920 x 1080, 16:9, 100000000:1 Dynamic, 5ms, HDMI, DVI at TigerDirect.com

If you can get them down under.

They were both top rated and well reviewed, along with the BenQ, at the time I bought mine. All 3 are excellent consumer grade TFT monitors.

I wasn't sure about the Acer over the Asus but took a chance to save a few bucks and do not regret it. I got the H271HL and I'm completely satisfied with it.

If your mission is gaming you might consider the Asus for the faster GTG response time. I don't know how much of a difference that makes (hardly any in AutoCAD!).

+1 for the ASUS I almost went that way but I was really fond of the 27" ViewSonic Full HD

Also Acer is a nice brand as well also keep in mind this is the Season for Deals so you might even catch something better for the same amount of money

I like Asus too. I have 2 24" Asus monitors and they have both been great.

I have three (22") 16:10 LG L227WTG monitors and they are awesome. The picture is stunning. Spend a bit more on a quality brand as it is your eyes that will be looking at the screen. If you can see the screen in another store take a look. I was all out to buy a Samsung but saw the LG which blew away the opposition.
LG generally have excellent screens in them which are made by LG Philips. Samsung is a good brand. Benq not so much.

Just a little word about the LG you have linked to, I had essentially the same model, just the 23" model, it had "touch" buttons for the settings and also for the ON/OFF. At first I thought it was cool, but after a while it became a bit of a pain and I often had to touch the ON button several times before it would finally register and switch on.

The picture quality was great, but I just thought I would warn you about the touch thing so you know.

Paul.
