The Bottom Line The Samsung SyncMaster S23A550H LED monitor performs well and the price is good, but it simply pales in comparison with its predecessor. Check out our review of the SyncMaster S23A550H, which is a similar monitor. The Asus PA248Q is a low-priced IPS monitor that doesn't skimp on performance or features. The HP x2301's low price, good performance, and sound design make it a new high-water mark for budget monitors. The Dell UltraSharp U2713HM is an excellent monitor that will satisfy both the performance snob and the features diva alike.
