I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In my experience-based opinion I would have to say ACER.

If anything, avoid buying anything from HP at all costs.
Both displays are comparable, here are a few simplifications that may help:
It is an LCD monitor that is LED backlit, not a true LED monitor
It only tilts
half the cost!

It is a true LED monitor
the tilt/swivel is going to be a lot kinder for your daily use

more due to cost than anything else I would go for the Acer.  I don't know of the comparable site, but both of those prices seem high for a 19" display.  The price difference moving up to a wide screen 21"+ tends to be negligable

As for vendor experience, I have had great success and bad products with any vendor including both Acer and HP.  It's the same argument as honda vs toyota

the HP has DVI, the ACER not, that may also be a comparison point

this is the one I would go for, you will see a big difference

As for others I would stick to Acer, HP, or Samsung(great quality, higher price)
