    Do you have any special requirements? All three are TN panels and likely the same one with a different model number and bezel. If you're not interested in color accuracy and the like, I'd recommend a LED backlit display if it's within your budget.

    Ok, yeah you'll be fine with a TN panel. If you find a LED display from samsung in your budget, go for it. Otherwise, there really isn't much difference between each model that I'm aware of.

    It will provide a brighter display, more even backlighting, and lower power consumption. You can check it out in person at most retail stores.

    Good choice. That's a great deal and I think it'll suit your needs quite nicely. Enjoy :)

    Agreed. Nice monitor. Now go back and buy a second one.

    I did 6 months ago. I bought two 24" Dells and connected them to my Mac Mini via HDMI. Best decision I've made in a while. Real nice. I often watch my SlingPlayer on one and do work on the other. :)

    Enjoy!

    If you're referring to my comment, it was a Dell ST2410 24" monitor that I bought. Two of them.
