Hi I've spent the last 2 days researching 22" monitors and I feel like I'm getting nowhere (and that I've gone mad). Oh, I notice that there are other posts on this forum about 22" monitors but I thought I'd start my own as I haven't been able to get the answers I want from them. I'll be using my monitor mostly for gaming, watching films and web browsing with the occasional work in photoshop/illustator (non professionally though). I realise that all 22" use the TN technology but this doesn't bother me as I found out that I've only ever used TN monitors. Anyway, I've managed to boil my choices down to 3 contenders: Samsung SM-226BW Iiyama PLE2201W-B1 Dell E228WFP The main problem here is the Samsung SM-226BW. The only thing stopping me from buying it is the supposed "panel lottery". I've read in many places that there are 4 types of panel for this model (A, C, S, and R). Many claim that there are massive differences between them whereas other claim that with a little jiggery pokery in the OSD settings they are all practically equal. I also understand that this panel does have input lag also. However, what I'm not sure about is whether this matters at all. The Iiyama has always come second under the Samsung in most of the reviews I've read. It does, however, have zero input lag and I also know I'm not going to be entering into some panel lottery. It's supposedly very good for gaming, apparently more responsive than the samsung with less ghosting. The Dell is in the list but only because it has also faired well in many online reviews and as far as I can remember dell have a good reputation with monitors and customer service so these are also a bonus. Interestingly I found this on the scan website. http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=604046 What does the V2 in the item title mean? Does it gurantee a good panel? I haven't been able to find any mention of a V2 SM-226BW anywhere else so is this just scan cleverly marketing the monitor? I've e-mailed to ask them about it but it normally takes a good while for them to respond. So, what would you do or what are your experiences of these monitors? P.S. I don't want a 24" monitor. My 8800GT would probably struggle on some of the more recent games at 1900 x 1200. Oh, and there isn't enough room on my desk for one either. Many thanks!
