What monitor to get?

Recommended Posts

I want to get a new monitor and i mainly want just a good lookling image. I'm not to concerned about gaming quality. The Sony seems to have a very nice picture with the x-brite coating or whatever it is. It is glossy and pretty nice, does not have such a pixeled (SP) like other LCD's Your advice is appreciated, thanks

Thanks...im not good at technical things, what makes this better than the sony? if you dont mind me asking.

its got a much higher contrast ratio, 2000:1 vs 550:1 on the sony and its much faster 2ms vs 12ms on the sony.

And the samsung monitors look better too.

the samsung is the best choice. that response time and contrast ratio are great i just bought the samsung 204b because i wanted a 20" monitor. i already had a 19", but if i was going for a 19" THE SAMSUNG YOU PICKED IS HARD TO BEAT. (sorry for the caps)

I have two of these...bought at different times and not a single bad pixel in the bunch....overall very nice and very inexpensive....I highly recommend them.

I should clarify...that is the monitor....the listing above is for open box items of it....I would suggest their next available new item which is below....any monitor from this company is going to be good based on my personal experience with them.

I have to tell you as a former sales person of electronics. Sony relies on it's name to charge higher prices. They are no different than many other high quality monitors, but the Sony name brings more money.

You don't need to buy the Sony to get the same quality, Samsung delivers the exact same quality for a lower price.

thats not 100% true, you are paying more some what for the name sony, but alot of there stuff does cost more to make espically with there LCD's and Plasma TV's.

ill see if BB will give me one for free... ill tel them i want to return the monitor if they wont. LOL nah J/k.. but maybe they might give me one. SO are the magic tune and natural color software any good? Thanks for the fast reply.

  yes they work fine adjusting your screen to the type of lighting in  the room and the the way you use your monitor ie: gaming,internet , picture processing and so on. funny my 204b came with dvi and rgb cables have them ck another box

After using this monitor for a while i must sa it is not all that great. I purchased A DVI cable and it seems like the text is worse with the DVI. I keep on adjusting the monitor COntrast/brightness etc but i just cant seem to get it right. Maybe i will get he sony after all....  :-|

also when using DVi cable, some setting are not available, like the auto adjust and a fine and coarse settings. Why is that?

you didnt get the right DVI cable, there is a single link and a duel link, you have a single.

yeah samsung makes great monitors. i have a 172N 17 inch and have never had any problems with it. used to play games on it all the time and never had that "ghosting" problem people have talked about with LCD screens. mine is only vga compatible because its like 3 years old but i really cant tell the difference...
