    Which Samsung Monitor?

    I'm ordering my new gaming rig tomorrow and am now in the process of looking to get a shiny new monitor to go with it.

    I have narrowed it down to these 2 samsung ones..

    Samsung S23A350H
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-S23A...6568542&sr=1-1

    Samsung 24B300HL
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-S24B...6568770&sr=1-2

    i know there is a 3ms difference between the two and a 0.6inch size difference but does this really make up for the £55 difference or is there something i am missing. Thanks for any input

    Re: Which Samsung Monitor?

    The " difference and ms difference to my mind is irrelevant.

    What I would take notice of is that the S23 was added in 2011, and is hardly being sold by anyone - it's just that "preiscompany", whoever they are. It seems likely that the monitor is End of Life (EOL).

    The 24, on the other hand, is still being sold by Amazon, and was added to the site in 2012. Personally, I'd rather buy from Amazon, so I'd take the latter.

    I didn't even pay attention to the dates of release of the products on the websites, you have however confirmed what i initially thought was better, i will definitely be going for the 24". Thanks for the help Jim.

    Definitely worth a consideration. I would only ever buy Dell monitors now, personally. I have a pair of 2212HM panels and love them dearly

    I got a Samsung monitor for Christmas as a present and it's great, but wish it has the height adjustment of Dell monitors.
