X-bit Labs have been doing a yeoman's job at trying to compile a huge list of monitors for you to compare. They are continually expanding the number of round-ups they have for monitors of various sizes, the newest of which is the sixth installment of their look at 20" monitors.

The ASUS MK241 is 1920x1200
24" monitor with a claimed 2ms (gray to gray)
response time, 3000:1 contrast ratio and a 130% colour gamut. They also claim that this monitor will be perfect for both gamers and graphics pros, a serious achievement if it is true. ExtremeTech has some positive things to say, but can't call the monitor perfect.

HEXUS has spotted a Sapphire monitor that is worth showing off! A native resolution of 3,840x2,160 (16:9) will pretty much cripple any graphics card if you could find a game that supported it, and your system might actually need this fan if you actually managed it.

If you are looking for a nice big monitor, then AnandTech is the place to visit. They've gather five 24" widescreen LCDs, three are TN panels aimed at consumers and two are S-PVA panels which will appeal more to graphical designers.

Well, don't I feel foolish for buying a 30" monitor that now has a "technical issue" and has been removed from Dell's website? I wonder how long it will take for people to revolt and want an exchange for all the existing 3008WFP monitors...
