    cuz I saw the 1st and 3rd one at Best Buy and really couldnt tell the difference from those they both looked nice but, the LG cost less and I can get it today for less with tax and dont have to wait but its always so hard to choose:banghead:

    931BF because i have the 930BF and the only difference is the casing and its the best monitor iv ever worked with oh and a faster response time

    Do your self a favor and check out the ones u have selected(16.2 million colours)next to a monitor that displays over 16.7 million.A very large difference,IMO,and a big deciding point.
    I have used the 931 bf for a few months,very good at games,just never looked quite right.
    replaced with another samsung with more colour(16.7),Now it all looks right.

    I dont know if this is too much $ for ya ,but i also have a samsung 204b 20.1" and have been very pleased by its performance.

    Gotta add the fact that the dvi cable that came with the moniter is junk(randomly cycling screen).replaced it with a new cable and it works great.
    Also available at best buy for close to same price.
