    I have my eyes on this one; ASUS VS239H-P.

    Is that a good choice? I had a Dell UltraSharp monitor, and it was great. But the problem is that the 23" UltraSharp (Dell U2312HM) doesn't have HDMI input, while this one does.

    It will primarily be used as the desktop display for a MBA, but I'd like to plug in my game consoles (PS2 and XBox 360) to play games on. Hence the HDMI input requirement.

    Yes, I am very tempted by the generic Korean 27"era that everyone's talking about, but the problem is: the cheaper models use Dual-DVI, which my MBA cannot handle, and if I want DisplayPort + HDMI, the prices gets jacked up.

    Any tips or recommendations would be great!

    Have you thought of using an adapter? Kanex makes them, Geffin (sp) I believe makes them along with various other folks.

    I did, and they have a HDMI-DVI adapter on Monoprice… but it's HDMI male to DVI male, which doesn't make sense… shouldn't it be HDMI female to DVI male?

    Nonetheless, it would be nice to have HDMI built-in and not have to deal with adapters, right?
