Hi Chaps,
I need a monitor and I need help in choosing it. 22" or 24".
I will be using it for Photoshop editing but will also watch films and Xbox360.
Photoshop is the priority...
I have looked at Dell, HP and so on but my head is sore :confused:

No chance of getting a good 24" for £200 unless you go second hand e.g. on the bay. However for 22" I'd recommend:

Samsung 226BW
Dell UltraSharp 2208

help me obi wan kenobi YOU'RE my only hope! not your

as others have said you can't really get a decent 24 for that price, but 22 just choose what tickles your fancy, probably want a good contrast ratio and nice and bright with a good response time, and speakers for your 360

What you want, for the money you have doesn't exist. You'll be looking at TN's and their associated shortcomings. If you are serious about PS work you'll also need to budget another £60-120 for a calibration device.
