    Monitor Help

    Hi,

    I am planning on getting a 27" LED monitor, and I saw a few of them, but not quite sure if any og them are particularly better or not, as the price varies a little and is all Samsung:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-T27A...9676387&sr=8-3

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-S27B...9676387&sr=8-2

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-T27A...9676387&sr=8-5

    Anyone can tell what is their difference is if it would make much difference at all?

    I'm looking at samsung's website, and it looks like they're pretty much all the same thing except for options. Some of them have TV Tuners, Speakers, USB ports... all kinds of stuff people usually don't buy monitors for.

    I wouldn't recommend a monitor with a TV-tuner, they usually have a bit of input lag.

    Perhaps take a look at this ASUS monitor?

    Pretty decent review for a TN panel.

    Oi, I accidently bought a monitor with tv tuner.

    It's okay though, I have dual monitor and I game on my IPS monitor. :P

    Considering going triple monitor later but need to buy a DP port monitor for that.
