This, I can get it used for about 180-200 USD

I can't find anything about refresh rates and don't really know anything about LCD's.

It'll be for a work computer that basically is for Word, Email, Remote desktoping, java apps, and browsing.. I may play the occasional game, but it'll be on an ati radeon 7000.. and if the card ever gets better, well, I still won't really care lol...

CRAP CRAP, sorry, I thought I was in the desktop component forum... mods move this please.. doh

A. watch out for 'dead pixels'. some stores wont take returns or do RMA unless there is 8 or more dead pixels. unnacceptable.

B. for the price difference these days, i'd look into 19" LCD. its worth the extra $50/$60.

C. once again, its more money, but try to get an LCD with DVI input as well as VGA, as it will really help in the future if you upgrade vid card. DVI signal is so much better. For VGA, the graphics card converts the computers digital feed into analog, carries it to the monitor, and the LCD has to convert it back to digital. With DVI, its digital out, digital in.

D. Refresh rate is rubbish. It doesnt apply on LCD monitors. What is important is response time. 20ms or lower is ideal for normal work, and 12ms or lower is ideal for gaming.

E. brightness of 250 is a bit on the low end. 300 or higher is ideal.

F. contrast is also a bit low. 500 or higher is ideal.



With LCDs, you get what you pay for. There is bottom end, mid-range, and high-end. High-end is recommended for gaming or playing movies on, mid-range is for office, and low-end is if you like going blind. /ph34r.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='ph34r.gif' />

another great buy these days is the Hyundai L90D+. It uses the amazing Samsung LCD screen (Samsung rocks), but adds DVI digital input, something available only on high-end $500+ Samsung monitors.

I ended up buying a BenQ FG937 from ncix.com. I couldnt resist. Free shipping promo, $35 instant rebate, and no tax for me, plus it comes with DVI Cable, Zero Dead Pixel insurance, and a free 150channel tv tuner. All for a price that was less than the cheapest Analog Samsung monitor.
