Dell and Asus don't make the monitors they sell - they're supplied to them by major monitor makers and merely have Dell and Asus markings ("branding") on them.

I have an ASUS monitor which I am pleased with, but it's not the one you listed above. The thing I like more about the Dell is that it is Tilt, Swivel and Height adjustable, if you like those features. It also has more USB ports. I don't know about the display itself, which is important, of course.

@Tubesandwires : : I know they don't make their monitors but then what do you suggest ? Their monitors have better specs than any monitor of Samsung or LG which are available in the market here( ie: India). And I cannot (and don't need to) spend huge amount on an IPS or VA type panel monitor from brands like NEC etc.

@ kx5m2g : : Yes I know that. Even this model of Dell has a tilt and swivel adjustment. But Asus monitor complies with VESA 100mm standard so I can buy a supplementary LCD stand to use with the Asus. I am primarily concerned with the display quality.

Also, guys I am basically a computer science student and spend lots of time in front of the monitor. I want a monitor which puts least strain on the eye and is best suited to my needs (as a computer science person)

"I want a monitor which puts least strain on the eye and is best suited to my needs (as a computer science person)"

All quality monitors these days are good regarding eye strain.

If that's the most important thing to you, make some choices then look at as many models as you can locally, preferably where you can watch them side by side, to see which one looks the best to you. If you're a gamer, and/or if how good fast moving video looks is important to you, watch a bank of monitors side by side while the same DVD movie is playing on all of them in store.
So far, Samsung monitors look the best to me, regardless of the specs. A 60Hz technology Samsung monitor often looks as good as some other brands 120hz technology model.

Keep in mind all LCD and Plasma monitors have an "Optimal" or "Native" resolution at which they look best set to, and all other resolutions will not look as good (CRT monitors do not have that restriction to anywhere near the same degree but of course they're pretty well dead as a new product) - you would have to be satisfied with what they look like in that resolution - the size of the icons, text, etc. One difference between good quality monitors and average or less quality monitors is the former always look better in other resolutions that the latter do.

@Tubesandwires :: Hey, Thaks for the advice but the main problem is that where I live, monitors above 20 inch are not on display anywhere. Its because people mainly buy 17 and 19 inch models. Whenever someone orders a 24 inch monitor they (the vendors) get it shipped only then. So one cannot see even a single monitor (forget about comparing different models). This is the reason why I turned to this forum for help because I have not seen either of the 2 monitors I have mentioned.
Also, I know about the native resolution but again I can't see how they look at different resolutions as you suggested.

Look at the largest screen sizes you can of very similar models that are displaying, made by the same makers. The larger screen sizes will be very similar.
There's nothing as good as seeing the monitor right there in front of you, regarding judging whether you like what you see, and being able to copare them when there is more than one displaying the same thing.
