The KDS or Sony. KDS has a faster response time, but my guess is that the Sony is probably a little higher quality. The other two are complete junk, IMHO. I mean, don't throw em, but you'd never be able to game with them. I mean, gaming is going to be crap with any of them. See, if you wouldn't have blow all your money on your Alienware crap...you'dve been able to afford a good monitor.

Go to Newegg.com. Half of those monitors aren't even manufactured anymore.

J, I don't think he's looking to purchase any of them. He can't afford it now. He has all of those above, he's wondering which to use.

Hmm what? That was a pointless bump. I already told you what one to go with. Plus, is it really that hard to test each yourself to see? I mean, that seems like the obvious way to go.

It wasn't a pointless bump, he just wanted some more opinions. So here's mine. Sony has an excellent reputation and most things that they produce are high quality (and usually out of my price range). Their TVs are excellent, so I'm pretty sure their monitors are too.
