I have always preferred Samsung. Just my opinion, but putting LG or Samsung next to any others and I pick the LG or Samsung. And Samsung does not seem to have issues working technically with my Macs.
HDMI gives better picture than VGA. But pick one when buying what is not provided in package... getting a minidisplayport-to-HDMI then adding an HDMI-to-VGA adapter seems to lose signal through that second adapter.

Thank you for your help. I have seen this Samsung TV/Monitor: T22B350EW. Screen looks amazing and it has good speaker.
So If connect direct from HDMi to HDMI I shouldn't have any trouble and have a great quality?

HDMI would work would be my thinking.
I have an LG monitor with TV-style tuner. That way the "display unit" takes image processing load off of the Mac like a "just monitor" does, but has all inputs required for TV viewing.
Most TVs I think do far less image processing (just input plug conversion) and leave much of the image processing to the Mac's graphics card, making for a less-pleasant viewing experience.
But then I may be dead wrong on that last point and others are free to enlighten me so I can know more.

I bought a Samsung 24" HD monitor and it's breathtaking. Samsung is usually my 1st choice when buying a new monitor. I run @ 1920 X 1080 and the colors and sharpness are just beautiful.

I have always been a fan of Dell monitors but the best thing to do is go to a store and look at the diffrent ones and see what picture you like the best. I like the Dell because to me its a much warmer picture but other people dont like a warm picture they want bright. so best to do is go look at them in person and see what you prefer
