    Recommend me a monitor

    Looking for a good 1080p monitor under $150. Been gaming on a 1024 or whatever resolution it is and i know I'm not seeing the full potential of the games. thanks!

    This is also a little bit more pricey (same as the Dell) but it's 3D and an IPS display.

    Those are a little bit pricey and i don't really use 3d. What do you all think of this one?

    I can strongly recommend the Iiyama monitors. They're cheap and REALLY high quality. I've had my 24" full HD Iiyama monitor since like 2008. If it was cheap then, I wonder how cheap it is now.

    TN panel makes it rubbish. Your viewing angles will suck, color accuracy will be piss poor and you will likely have ~ average contrast ratio's/black levels.

    Also lacks an hdmi port.

    Viewing angles are only an issue if you use the monitor as a TV to watch movies otherwise you usually sit 2 feet aay directly in front of the monitor.

    Depends on the screen quality. Some are so bad you get shifts just by moving your head.

    Point is there really isn't much of a reason to bother with a TN panel these days.

    120hz support being pretty much the only reason.

    Well you could go for a BenQ which is cheaper than the others, 24", and has a new VMA panel which is nice. Just no stand height adjustments though.

    I didn't see that it didn't have an HDMI port. I might go with the Dell then, i just have to save up a little more.

    Dell monitors are fine. Most of their models are cheap.

    I would recommend Dell ST23L which is the one i am using
