Windows 7: monitor help

Windows 7 Ultimate 64

Don't get caught up on spec's as they are easily cooked by the manufacturers. What is your budget and which one LG/Samsung fit's into the budget better? If in doubt and money isn't an issue then go with the Samsung and get the biggest screen you can afford.....imho. The price jump from 23"-24"+ was huge but if it wasn't I would have for sure gone with even larger screens as I had gone from a single LCD TV @ 26" to the dual 23" LG's. Do you have a local store near that carries a wide range of monitors so you can go see and play with? If not then you can only read what users are saying about them as I did and when I settled for the LG's it was the raves that convinced me to buy. In the end the raves are well warranted but the Samsung's got crazy raves as well. Try to get your hands and eyes directly on the two and you likely will come to a quicker conclusion......don't place too much value on the spec's as they like your mileage "may vary" ! lol
