Good 1080p Monitor?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello! I was just looking around, and thought I could get a new monitor. What is just a good monitor for around $180? (Cheaper the better). Here is my requirements.

 

Here is my current monitor:

 

HP W2071D

 

Specs:

 

Size: 20"

Resolution: 900 x 1600 (not full 1080p)

Contrast Ratio: 3,000,000:1

Inputs: DVID and VGA

Refresh Rate: 60Hz

 

This is what I am looking for:

 

Size: 19-22"

Resolution: 1080 x 1920 (full 1080p)

Inputs: HDMI or Displayport

Refresh Rate: 60Hz (It looks alright for me)

 

My current monitor does the thing where when I am in a dark room it gets these grey/black blotches. So annoying. Is 75Hz worth it? They are a lot more expensive! I think it would be nice if the monitor didn't have huge borders on it. Thanks.

I dont have any personal experience with anything over 60hz however i just purchased a Dell U2414H, its a 24" matte IPS panel with really thin bezels for around $220 on amazon. If thats out of your price range they also have a glossy panel the Dell S2415H which has all the same specs for around $190. :)

That is cool, but I that is out of my budget. Its a bit big as well. I was looking more in the 21"

I'm still considering to get one of this.

Philips 224E5Q

LG 22MP67HQ

 

Both range on $150-160, 1080p, IPS Panel, and HDMI Ports.

 

why considering? because I still have 3 working monitors.

I am thinking about the Asus VK228H-CSM or the Asus VX228H. Which one is better. The VK228H has quiet speakers with a 1MP webcam, and the VX228H has a loud speakers and no webcam. Which one would you get? I need speakers.

since you already have option why not go with the one you want the most?

altough I don't recomend build-in webcam. Good luck.

I don't know which one is best. I am asking for opinions. Whats yours? I don't think the camera is TOO bad because it is 1MP. My laptop is a .3MP and its GREAT, but its certainly gets the job done. I don't really ever use a webcam nor built-in speakers. The only time I use speakers is when I want to show someone a video, but I have Kraken Headphones. I wont use the webcam much either. If I don't get a webcam built-in I will never get one. They cost $70 for a decent one. Which you prefer?

The samsung S24D590L is a good PLS (Samsung IPS variant) 60 Hz monitor with slim bezels. Although it is only 23.6inch so a bit off your requirement. The only issue is if you pick up one with dead pixels like I did and had to replace same day.

Yeah, i don't like 24" monitors. If I got that I would have to get a 1440p one. I want atleast a 100PPI. My current one is 90PPI. But I am mainly getting a new one because I want Full 1080p for a bit higher resolution, OCD, built-in speakers, and my current one only has a 600:1 Contrast Ratio, I want on with a STATIC Contrast Ratio of 1000:1.

I'd suggest going with a decent IPS panel: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/acer-monitor-umqg6aa001
