Is there that much of a difference from a 17.1 inch over an 18.1 inch LCD?
and if there is would I be better off buying an 18.1 inch analogue over a 17.1 digital (consider both have same contrast, response, etc roughtly) and the 18.1 is $35 more.
And then do any of you guys know the warranties on Compaq LCDs versus NEC LCDs?
PS: Possibly consider I have to buy a new video card if I go digital, but it might not cost me anything if I can sell my current card.
You guys surely are the experts. I found an LCD monitor today and the brand is supposedly Xenon, model TFT18EF. I couldn't find a web site and the little bit of information about the monitor said 300:1 contrast ratio, but nothing about response time. It does have a TV tuner, and s-video and sound inputs which is pretty cool if its a nice monitor. Do you know if this is a nice monitor or if its crap?
Never heard of the company. Personally, I don't trust companies I haven't heard of cause they usually sell junk, or there's at leats no gaurantee it'll be good. Plus, if there really wasn't any website, it says a lot about that company. If you want a great 17", go for Compaq's TFT7020.
Could this by any chance be what you are looking at: http://www.xenontel.com/eng/1810em.html ?
Hmm, specs don't seem anything spectacular, and it's obviously not of teh newest technology, hence I estimate response time as high as 50ms, but who knows, could be 80ms like in junk that's still sold! I'll contact them and ask around.
Did you get educational pricing from being a student? or because your a teacher or what?
Because I'm going to school at UCF (University of Central Florida) and I'm getting this monitor for school use in graphics, and video editing. If you'd let me know how to get that price I'd really appreciate it.
