Hey guys, so recently I got given 2 monitors. A Philips 236V3LSB/75 and a Samsung SyncMaster S22B350H which I'm going to run off my laptop using the laptop's HDMI port. Just wanted to know which one is better and that I should use so I can go out and get a cable for it.

 

 

 

Thanks

I like the Samsung monitors, but in your case it is a bit smaller but does have better response time.

 

You planning on using the monitor for anything in particular ? (ie: gaming)

I'd prob go for the larger monitor then as an all rounder.

I run two 23s from my work laptop.  You normally need a dock for that to work though and I'm not exactly testing the frame rate most of the time...
