    LED - Save power, thinner and better contrast ratio.

    yap, i went from a LCD to LED and i haven't regretted it, and u can actually run 2xLED and only consume the power of 1xLCD and u get greater Contrast :D

    i went from 22inch LCD to 24inch LCD (i think it was) too big so i changed it to a 21,5inch LED and that's more suitable for me =^_^=

    if your mainly interested in gaming on it, go for the lowest response time, get the LCD

    if your interested in graphic software and saving energy "tiny though it is*, get the LED

    if your interested in saving money, get the CHEAPEST

    if neither above are relevent, then thread is pointless

    does that help you :)

    Well I always get confused since the one you posted is LED backlit not really a true LED panel.
    I have a LED backlit screen and it looks pretty good but true LED is ofcourse better.

    pfff, u can get LED with 2ms respons time, even at 24inch BenQ, Samsung and some others has made that, but yet again 5ms is fine, how much lower u want it? my Philips 221EL2 has 5ms and i think that's fine for me ^_^

    If i had to choose out of those two. I would go for the LCD monitor. It's cheaper and has an HDMI port.

    going by the 2 screens the OP linked, i made my recommendation.

    If he wanted to search high and low for a screen then I don't think he would have posted THOSE 2 choices he was interested in here would he??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    Can't live without it. And yes HD movies look fantastic on 1080p monitors and so do games compared to lower resolutions, first thing you should try out is go to youtube and watch a 1080p video or something, you'll definitely notice a difference.

    EDIT: Just so you are aware too, 1080p = marketing term for 1920x1080 resolution.
