Hi guys,

Need some assistance here, got some extra funds for my birthday and I wanted to pickup a 27' monitor.
I'm not a heavy gamer, however I will play the occasional game from time to time. The monitor will mostly be used for work purposes, remote desktop, word processing, and watching videos.

I was at a local computer store last week and I came across these 2 models:

http://www.asus.com/...jectors/MX279H/

And

http://www.samsung.c...pe=series-3-led

I used to be a big LG fan , but I've steered away from there and have been buying Samsung TVs and monitors. However that ASUS looks damn ass sweet. I know ASUS pretty much docks at everything they make....but monitors?? Anyhow some help here would be much appreciated

Thnx

Love my asus monitors... That one you are looking at is very sweet looking. 5ms IPS will look so good you will love it. The samsung wont' look nearly as good and is a completely different display technology. good reason for The price difference.

with 5ms your games will look fine I personally see lag at around 8ms.

totally voting Asus, if you have the cash spend it. If you are like me, you spend 8-14 hours looking at a freaking screen for work/school so it's worth it to spend some money on this.

I always think the more detailed a company is about their product and of course if its good, makes it a solid deal.

I'd go with the ASUS, the price difference isn't worth the decrease in quality you're looking at with the Samsung.

Nothing at all, since this DELL is not even a Touch Screen.... Would be the only "feature" that would help Win8 users.
