Monitor suggestions

Recommended Posts

Well, I think my CRTs are approaching the end of their lifespan :- so I'm looking into buying new monitors.

They probably won't be used for gaming, but you never know...

Other than that, I'd like them to be 19"+ and that's about it

Multi input would also be nice (DVI, VGA, S-video, maybe composite)  My video card has 1 VGA and 1 DVI output (Radeon x1300)

Any suggestions on good brands/places to buy?  A 19" LG is $259 at Circuit City this week..

samsung 940b, $279.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16824001067 probally one of the best LCDs you can get.

I purchased a 19", CTL with built in speakers months ago, from newegg and absolutely love it.  I looked at several things:  Warranty (three year, no hassle), Dead Pixel Warranty (30 day), Connection Types, View Angle, Response Time and Cabinet Color (black)!  For some reason they haven't been selling CTLs lately.  The pixel thing is supposed to be a crap shoot, so get one with a dead pixel warranty, otherwise you may end up with eight dead pixels the rest of its life.

They came today.. quite fast shipping. (Ordered monday night, arrived thursday afternoon)

After getting them adjusted a bit, I'd have to say they're pretty sweet :D

No dead pixels/damage... great color, really clear, no ghosting... and they're nice and big. ;)

Now I gotta find a place to store the old ones... lol
