I have a viewsonic vp191s and I have been greatly impressed with thsis monitor. I just wish that I had the desk space to add a second one.

Buy what you can afford! I'd browse anandtech.com/displays/ for some thoughts and reviews.

After having used many different models from Samsung, LG, and NEC; I would have to go with the NECs. The resolutions are great, the pixels are bright, and they are easy on the eyes. I like the Samsungs, but their monitors, I percieve, are a big dimmer than others. The LGs are ok, but I wouldn't stay with them.

I use a NEC 1850 MultiSync+ and love it. I think the newer one is a 1860. My two cents worth.

A big plus 1. I use an NEC MultiSync 1850E and it rocks! It is very fast for an LCD.

I bought a Samsung 21" a couple years ago. I still love it. I also have my directv box hooked up to it so I can do PIP.

i have the 17inch NEC 1760NX LCD. I use the dvi port and its great for gaming. Using the dvi port on a LCD makes the ghosting non exhistant. Samsung does make a great lcd monitor. I remember reading that samsungs panels are one of the best as with nec.

Most of the charcoal grey (Klingon) SGI monitors will be the high end flat screens (not flat panels). The later SGI monitors might be either DVI or 13w3 so ask the person/company from whom you buy them. I don't have the model numbers memorized so I don't know if the GDM20E21 is a CRT or LCD.

As for the SGI CRTs: for a short period of time SGI dabbled in the IA32 arena and shipped some decent monitors (whereas the others mentioned above are excellent) so make sure you determine if they are flat screens.

Viewsonic VP201's

I've got my dual DVI video card on these bad Boys and they ROCK!


Stay away from Samsung....you get what you pay for.

NEC - Only one I know of that has a hard cover over the screen. I stood in Best Buy for an hour looking and tweaking, got a NEC 1765 - it looked the best, more contrast, fast enough for gaming. It only has an analog input, showing that the other is a gimmick, just like AGP slots, more than 128mb ram on a vid card and having to buy "DX 9 fully implemented" video cards for games that suck or don't get released anyway.
