Good hardware forums?
« on: April 15, 2009, 03:41:45 pm »
I'm buying a new display, but some TFTs I looked at have no reviews at all, which is strange. Maybe there are user reviews in some forums? Do you know any good ones? Language doesn't matter.

I'm primarily choosing between

Samsung SyncMaster 2443FW

and

EIZO FlexScan S2402W

I would look around on TigerDirrect....get a monitor with at least 1080 and the rest of the connections.

For most reviews I look at Tom's/Guru3d and the overclocking forums,however monitors are not often talked about there.

I'm sure it's great and all that but that screen costs more than the rest of my computer  :icon_razz2

The ASUS VK246H is a cheap one.....

It rates with 2,06 / Euro 290 while the XL24 rates 1,77 / Euro 1610

An alternative could also be the 26 inch Novita 2602WHD which is 1,97 / Euro 330

Why are those so much money and not even "full featured" ?
