oooh. now i understand what you mean. i've just about settled on the Dell U2419H (assuming the stocks haven't been depleted yet) because no HC models are available in the "U" series OR any random 1080p well-reviewed gaming monitor (like the AOC 24G2) which will be way cheaper than the Dell. tsk, tsk. now i have to go look at Lazada again if there are still stocks left of the Samsung. and think about things some more. seriously though, i wish i had the space for the 28" Samsung.
