Windows 7: Buying a new Monitor

Buying a new Monitor

I am in the market for a new Monitor. These are my options I am looking at thus far.

Newegg.com - Acer P235Hbmid Black 23" 5ms HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 50000:1(ACM) Built-in Speakers - LCD Monitors

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824001385

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824254045

I like the Hans-G. But I am just concerned that the constrast Ratio is 15000:1 compared to the 50000:1 Acer or whopping 70000:1 of that samsung.

Opinions anyone? Is there anything that is a strong selling point of either that I should be looking at?

I've got a similar monitor to that on my system and it's been fine. I paid about $170 for mine..so happy with it for the price. It won't compare to a Dell UltraSharp U2410...but that monitor is about $550 from Dell right now...but it's the monitor I recommend for people who really care to have a beautiful display.

I've only ever used or thought about buying Samsung, LG, and Acer. What else Brandwise should I be considering?

Hanns are also supposed to be good. And I have 2 HP2207 - they are great (but expensive). But in the tests, Samsung always comes out on top.

PS: I would not worry about the contrast ratio. You would not notice the difference - unless you are an eagle.
