Dell U2312HM vs. ASUS VN247H-P (which is better for gaming)?

Gaming is my main concern. I heard the Dell has really low input lag while the asus has a tiny bezel. Which would be better?

I have two U2312HM monitors and think they're great. No problem with gaming.

No experience with Asus.

Well, from a gaming perspective lower input lag is actually relevant so on that basis I can say the Dell is a good choice since there's not really any info about the other one.

I'm not sure why the bezel would matter, unless you're planning on going with a 3-monitor gaming setup or something.

Potentially in the future I was going to get another one of which ever I chose.

Well, with dual monitors it's still not really a big deal since you aren't gonna be viewing stuff stretched across the two screens.

OK so you're thinking the dell is best? I was curious as I had heard some pretty good things on here about the asus

The Dell has a noticeable anti-glare coating, fyi.

Hmm. Is it annoying?

It's a matter of taste. It doesn't bother me in the least.

I have one of the U2312HM's cousins, the U2713HM, and I don't find the AG coating to be a nuisance. It's not nearly as heavy as what Dell used to use.

As for the other monitor, I'm sure it's fine, but they're nearly the same price and we know for a certainty that the Dell has one of the better total response times around, in addition to being IPS (better colors and wider viewing angles).
