    Which should I get?

    Viewsonic VA2012W 20" Widescreen LCD Monitor - Silver/Black (MO-051-VS)

    OR

    Belinea 102035W 20.1" Widescreen LCD Monitor - Black/Silver (MO-003-BE)

    Use is general gaming, office applications and graphics design...

    Thanks in advance for your opinions.

    Belinea is a better screen (better panel used), you'll be paying Viewsonic for the name.

    Is it better than the VX2022w?

    No idea, its not out yet and we don't have its spec.

    But I am waiting for it, hence holding off buying the Belinea.

    Does the VA2012W have the same problem of light bleed as the Belinea?

    Well the Viewsonic VA2012W uses an 8ms TN Film panel from Chunghwa Picture Tubes (CPT). This should offer some decent gaming performance, but imo it is sad to see the manufacturers scrimp on the panels used and use TN Film technology when there are excellent panels alternatively available. The Belinea 102035W uses an excellent P-MVA panel from AUO offering much wider viewing angles, a true 8 bit colour depth, smoother movie playback and a deeper black than you will get from a TN Film panel. As said above, you are paying for the name and perhaps the improved build quality with the Viewsonic here. The Belinea offers a much better all round performing panel :)
