+1: Best advice right here. If you don't need the higher refresh rate you're going to love the higher resolution. Either way, be prepared to get a nice display. :toast:

Yeah I did the same choice a few months ago. Went for a 24" 16:10 IPS screen instead of 3D and I think it was a wise choice since I don't watch any 3D stuff plus now I got better colours than classic LCD yey! When I bought my older Samsung LCD 4 years ago I thought I had a good screen. Well now I know lol... thought I'm pretty sure that even plain LCD LED screens at £150 do a better job than those older models.
