The Samsung SyncMaster 2232GW sports a hefty price, over $350 on PriceGrabber, but you do get a lot out of it.  It sports 2ms grey to grey response, a 1680x1050 native resolution and colours that Think Computers found to be quite impressive.  It is simple compared to some other monitors, having only 3 plugs, power, VGA and DVI, no audio, USB or iPod Docks, just the basics.&nbs

Ambidextrous monitor

Dell's UltraSharp 3008WFP-HC will accept just about any possible signal, with ports on the back for Analog VGA, DVI-D (2, w/HDCP), HDMI, DisplayPort, S-Video, Composite and Component.  The 8ms gray-to-gray can show some issues in FPS games, but ExtremeTech found the display perfect for watching HD video.  Another consideration for gamers is that it doesn't handle 1680x1050 which some find to be a sweet spot for Crysis.

DisplayPort is coming, and very soon.  Dell is going to be one of, if not THE first to get a high quality DisplayPort capable monitor on the market in the form of an updated 30" display.  The Dell 3008WFP adds more than just a DisplayPort connection though; it combines the 30" and 2560x1600 resolution with the features of the multimedia-based 24" monitors released in 2007.

This midsized monitor is making it's mark

LG's L204LT 20.4-inch widescreen LCD monitor seems perfect for gamers with some rather nice stats, 1680 x 1050 native resolution, 2000:1 contrast ratio and a 5ms response time.  Think Computers was rather impressed by this monitor, although they did take marks away because it doesn't come festooned with dozens of USB ports.

Any day now, X-bit labs will start giving away free monitors in a desperate attempt to clean up their testing room.  They have probably tested over 100 monitors in the past year, and show no signs of slacking off.  This time they focus on 24" models, wide screens preferred.  Gamers and movie geeks are allowed argue over which monitor deserves the top spot, but only after they've read the full article.
