Monitor Advice

Could anyone please summarise the differences between the three monitors (posted on HUKD's, links in post below)?

I can afford all of them, but I have just got a new PC and am ordering a new graphics card - I want a setup that will hopefully last me a good few years, and want the best I can afford at the moment! Using for watching movies, playing (fairly low-end and low-demand) games, and general browsing.

Many thanks, rep left for anyone who can help

its like writing a IT essay lol

there doesnt look much between them to be honest x

Basically you get what you pay for you probably won;t see any difference playing (fairly low-end and low-demand) games, and general browsing. However you may notice a diffence whilst watchin blu-ray

well these are all a similar price-range, so within this range, could you make any reccomendations?

Well I would go for the Samsung, mainly because Samsung are a well known make it has a larger screen size than the Dell and will probably give the best image quality.

Yes but the Samsung (and the Benq) is only 1920x1080

The Dell is 2048x1152

The Samsung and Dell both have 2ms response time. The Benq is 5Ms so forget that.

Thanks guys. What does a higher resolution and faster response time mean in 'real' terms?

Computer screens are made up of thousands and thousands of pixels. The more pixels on a computer screen the smaller each one is, so the more information you can display.

So a screen of 2048x1152 pixels will be able to show more information than one of 1920x1080 pixels.

Respose time is really the refresh rate. If you are watching a fast moving image (a DVD or Blu Ray disk) or playing a game, then you want the images to refresh as quickly as possible, hence 2ms is better than 5ms.
