So what do you think of the asus I mentioned above? http://forums.pcworl...post__p__552583
It has pretty good reviews on newegg.

I know you're looking for an LED monitor but if that's too much for your budget the one I got for my son is back in stock at Newegg...
Media Center: Core i3 3220 - 128GB Plextor SSD (boot) - 1TB Samsung HDD (storage) - Radeon 4350 - 8GB G.Skill 1333 RAM - Biostar ECO HD61V kit - Win7 HP 64-bit
Surface RT - Lumia 900

There is mercury in damn near everything. Add to it, that the amount of mercury in a monitor is negligible - and we are back to one of those 'issues' that have been completely blown out of proportion. As for what looks better - that all depends on the monitor. LED lighting also throws off the color balance, and never allows for accurate reds - unless you have an expensive RGB LED display.

Longer life span? I never had an LCD panel die due to backlighting... so I am not sure that is an issue either. As for color, again, quality of the panel makes up about 99% of the perceived difference. Both my Samsung and the Acer use the same lighting type, but there is a clear difference in white quality. Of course, there is a clear difference in overall quality as well.

I've heard the contrast of LED screens is better. The thing is, remember it uses a bit less energy (though all the new ones are repetitively efficient compared to the sony, rated for 60W max and I measured 45W; even the CCFL 24" ones are only rated for 30-35W, LEDs maybe 25-30W).
But again, I prefer the color of LED stuff, from my experience with it (and on my laptop's screen). I don't particularly like what's considered "accurate" color, I tried using a calibrator my dad has, and found that even at the 7500K setting it's too brown. Meanwhile, most screens by default, like the ones at school (which are set to the 6500K preset), look just about right that way.
