Hey HWC,

I need your help in selecting a new LCD monitor. This monitor is going to be my second screen next to my 14" Thinkpad Edge.

The monitor will be used for Photoshop, word processing, video editing, and light gaming.

I'm looking at monitors in the 23" to 24" range.

Right now, I've got several monitors that I'm looking at. I'm a bit effy on the U2412M since it is a good $100 more than the 2312HM and it's going to be a tight fit on my desk..

Dell UltraSharp U2312HM @ $200
Dell UltraSharp U2412M @ $300

LG E2411T-BN 24IN Widescreen LED Backlit LCD Monitor 1920X1080 5ms 500K:1 VGA DVI VESA Mount Black - LG Electronics - E2411T-BN
BenQ EW2420 24IN Widescreen LCD Monitor A-MVA LED 1920X1080 8MS DVI 2XHDMI Spkr - BenQ - EW2420
Samsung S24A300B 24IN Widescreen LED LCD Monitor Black 1920X1080 5ms DVI VGA - Samsung - LS24A300BS/ZA

Which one would you choose and why?

Thanks in advance!

If the U2412M will be a tight fit on your desk, then why list 3 more 24" monitors?
I have the U2412M, and for 300$ (340$ shipped), you can't go wrong.

Well... cost is another factor as well you see...

Of course, I'd like to cram the biggest monitor I can find for my budget :p

I am sick of my POS Sharp 19" 1368X768.

EDIT: I'm just unsure whether the extra $100 is worth it. Since I can use that extra $100 for a new PC.
