I need a new monitor for a second PC. I thought I would take my current 20" and stick it with the new PC and get a larger monitor for my Vista box which is used exclusively for gaming.

I'm trying to stick to £150, and keen to buy it locally if possible rather than online, thats why I have picked the ones below. Anyone got any experience with any of these?

Acer X223W - £145
Closest monitor I can find on product page...

ACER P223W - £170.00

Viewsonic VA2216W - £140.00

BenQ FP222W - £150

Hanns-G HG216 - £160

Are there any sites that explain each specification for monitors?

I found one before that was fantastic (it gave a description of the spec, the desirable range and what it meant to the quality of image), but i lost the bookmark.

Well I actually came across this;

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MO-026-OK

I know it looks cheap but it's a VA panel and get excellent reviews on both the site and the forum. Pretty tempted.

Only problem is I wonder if it's to large for sitting 2 feet away...
2 feet away is fine for a 24", although it will seem large initially if you're coming from a 19" or below!

The ocUK seems to have been displaced by the Yuraku (availible here and here) as budget VA screen of choice, it's much the same screen but supports HDCP and apparently is a guarenteed VA panel with no chance of getting a TN and having to send it back like the ocUK one.

Now if only we could get an IPS at that price :rolleyes:

A few more details here.
