I am in the market for a new monitor. I've been looking around and it seems that the general brightness for monitors is between 250-320 cd/m2.
The W2453V-PF is not LED backlit yet it has a brightness level of 310 cd/m2 and a response time of 2ms. The E2350V-SN, on the other hand, has a brightness level of 250 cd/m2 and a response time of 5ms but it is LED backlit.
My questions are, looking at these overall specs:
Which monitor is better? What makes LED backlight better? Is the LED backlight worth the decreased brightness level?
p.s. if you have any other comparable monitor suggestions (that are not samsung - I read their customer service is absolutely terrible), feel free to share. thanks!
Update: ended up going with the LG W2453V and it's by far one of the best purchases I've ever made. The warm up time is very barely noticable, it doesn't have an annoying flickering light (or any light for that matter) when turned off (so I can sleep with ease in the same room) and it's just all in all a great monitor. Also, I got it for $80 less than the Amazon listed price by buying directly from the Amazon warehouse (the external cardboard box was damaged - the monitor was in perfect, new condition). I'm very happy! thanks for the suggestions.
