    Need new 24" monitor for under $250

    Ive currently got a 22" acer and i wanna move to a dual setup with an upgrade to my primary monitor. Im looking for a 24" monitor that has atleast 1920x1080res. It is my daily use computer. I dont really watch movies on it but i do play plenty of games. Browsing around and it looks like ACER, ASUS, and Samsung make decent monitors in the price range. Looking to stay under $250. All recommendations are aprretiated.

    Nice im glad you requested that one. The one i was looking at is almost the same one. Only main difference i see is that this one is LED backlight. Im not sure if that is a big advantage or not. Otherwise ive founf the one u posted for $179 at tiger direct so i might go with that if the backlight isnt that big a deal.

    Get an LED backlight display, you can find some for much under $250, but to be honest I would just wait a week until black friday.

    Well the one im leaning toward is the one i posted above and its a 24" LED backlight for about $220. But yes... i wasnt planning on buying it either way until i see what deals i can find next week. Hopefully that exact one will go onsale.

    i was looking to get a 24" as well. How are samsungs? Since they make those nice LED Tvs i figure they're led blacklit monitors should be good? I was thinking this one

    Can you get an LG V series for your budget somewhere?

    I find them very very very sharp and the response time is insane. Best FPS monitors IMO. The color range is notably limited as it is a TN panel but they all will be at this price unless you go to something like a 22" dell IPS.
