Default Re: monitor help

I'd look for something with a decent response time, around 8ms and most of all, something that looks great! Also, don't pay extra for built-in speakers, you'll get much better sound from some of your own.
This has exactly the same specs, but without the HDMI connection (no sound).

It's a lot cheaper and it has a great response time of 2 seconds. It has numerous good reviews.

I went with that one and it looks sweet (only using as a monitor for my laptop at the moment, can't wait till the rest of my parts show up)
