    I'm looking to buy a monitor to plug my MacBook (late 2007) into. There are a few things I'd like, but I don't know if all these are possible:

    - Full HD Resolution
    - 16:9 aspect ratio
    - LED backlit / good colour vibrancy (I think they're related?)
    - 20" upwards (preferably around 24"-27")
    - thin display
    - HDMI / DVI input
    - less than €300 / $400ish

    I found the LG W2486L which looks like everything I want, but I was wondering if anyone else had any recommendations or suggestions? Or am I being unrealistic with those specs at that price?

    Thanks very much!

    Its a typical 24" TN LED based flat panel monitor.

    Its as good as the next.

    I am very happy with this one:

    Samsung SyncMaster T260HD

    *full 1080p
    *cable ready

    I love the picture quality. IMHO, pixel quantity trumps small differences in pixel quality any day, not that I have ever heard anyone say anything seriously negative about this Samsung's picture.

    I've had it plugged into my MacBook around six months now, and if I needed another large monitor, I wouldn't hesitate to get a second one. Great value and you might find it "on sale".
