Decent gaming monitor for under $150?

  1. The cheaper, the better.
    I don't need a large monitor. I don't care for them in the slightest.
    19" is what I'm shooting for. That makes it 4 inches larger than my laptop's already decent (for me) 15 inches.

    And even if I did want a larger monitor, I'd have nowhere to put it.

    I was looking at this model: ASUS VW193TR

    It has a lot of good reviews, except one guy who had a bad experience with it.
    I'll take that as an isolated incident.

    A different guy mentioned that it wasn't for gaming.
    I could understand that maybe it doesn't excel at gaming, but I don't see why it would be bad for gaming.

    The refresh rate looks decent, and the response time is within the 2ms-5ms gaming range.

    Is there something I'm missing?

    So did you buy this monitor? I use a 24" Samsung SyncMaster 245bw. I might be able to fit a 32 inch monitor on this desk though

    No, I actually just bought a different Asus yesterday from Fry's for 170.

    Thread is solved. :)
