    whats the best 24" lcd to get?

    I own the Gateway FHD2400. It has a beautiful, sharp, dynamic picture. I mostly game and love it for this. Red is fairly strong out of the box but I just adjusted it down. Text is sharp also. The only problem is I have the well known problem of severe back light bleed. If you look up the Gateway...

    HP W2558HC LCD Monitor

    Update: I tried the color temp adjustment on this monitor and it does help. I still find it has somewhat of a blue tint. I tried custom adjusting the rgb controls but was unable to completely remove the slight blue tint. Perhaps with more time or a colormeter. ymmv

    HP W2558HC LCD Monitor

    Dont know which company makes the panel but I've been keeping an eye on this LCD also. Found a helpful review @ www.digitalversus.com/article-357-4590-23.html I looked at one of these at a local store and it does have a nice picture. I prefer the glossy screen.

    24 inch 2ms monitor suggestions ~100-300

From the Gateway thread there were very few owners who...
