Hi I'm a computer parts reseller in Australia (If that actually counts for anything). We personally prefer Samsung (3 years on site warranty) for most of our displays here in the office and to customers. And please please check the warranty terms, some will say 3 years onsite, and in fine print, pick up and return, so you'll be out of a monitor whilst its being repaired.
