LG 24UD58-B vs Samsung U24E590D?


#1

So there are two monitors I’m currently looking at, the LG 24UD58-B and the Samsung U24E590D. The specs look very similar to each other, and I’m not really sure which one is “better”, if one even is.

[details=LG 24UD58-B specs]* Size - 23.8"

  • Resolution - 3840x2160 (4K)
  • Panel - IPS
  • Refresh Rate - 60 Hz
  • Freesync
  • Response time - 5 ms GTG
  • Color Gamut - 72% NTSC
  • Color Depth - 8 bit + FRC
  • Brightness - 250 cd/m2
  • Connectors - 2x HDMI, 1x DP
  • Warranty - 1 year
  • Price - $280
    [/details]

[details=Samsung U24E590D specs]* Size - 23.6"

  • Resolution - 3840x2160 (4K)
  • Panel - PLS
  • Refresh Rate - 60 Hz
  • Freesync
  • Response time - 4 ms GTG
  • Color Gamut - 100% sRGB
  • Color Depth - 8 bit
  • Brightness - 250 cd/m2
  • Connectors - 2x HDMI, 1x DP
  • Warranty - 1 year
  • Price - $270
    [/details]

What I’m looking for is pretty simple:

  • 5 ms or faster response time
  • No larger than 25 inches
  • Good color reproduction
  • VESA mount
  • Less than $300

From what I can tell both monitors satisfy those desires. The Samsung has a 1 ms faster response time and it’s $10 cheaper. The LG should have better color because of the FRC and the VESA mount is in a better position. The Freesync, color gamut, refresh rate, brightness, resolution, size, warranty, and connectivity are pretty much the same as far as I can tell.

Is either one really better than the other? Alternatively, are there any monitors that I’m not looking at that I should? I’m not super worried about PPI, my laptop has a PPI of just over 176 at 12.5" and I can use it well enough.
