    Hello Guys,

    I have a 22" Dell S2209W monitor which I had purchased over 2 years ago. I am looking for a new monitor now. That monitor was ok, nothing great. Infact I was running a batman movie in my new Vaio laptop yesterday and my desktop. The difference in quality was easily visible. The white and good colours reflected in my laptop LCD screen was diff that what monitor showed. It's white was not white and quailty of output was so so.

    My main purposes :

    - movies/tv shows
    - software development work
    - gaming but not often

    - Max Budget $300
    - Size : 23" or 24"

    I have a vaio laptop (1600x900) and at times when I am at home I would want to connect my laptop to the monitor so that I can use it to work on my office documents etc. And other times my monitor would anyways be connected to my PC. An HDMI port would be great but its not that important.

    The brands I would consider is DELL, Samsung, LG & Viewsonic. I am keen on dell ultrasharp monitor.

    For e.g. DellTM UltraSharp U2312HM is costing $290 while 24" is costing $390.

    What should I do for ? I want a very good display. I live outside US so sites like newegg etc won;t be helpful in terms of price.

    I will appreciate your help.

    Dell or Samsung would be my choice. The Dell prices are not bad but I can buy a 32 inch LCD 720p/1080p TV for that price.
    My 32 inch Sony Bravia 720p was only $320 and HDMI hookup makes it a great laptop companion for movies or whatever.
    Good luck.:)

    Honestly the Vizio monitors are very good quality and cheaper than most higher end.
