LCD Monitor with 1024x768 resolution?

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.hardware (More info?)

I was considering replacing my 19" Mitsubushi Diamondtron with a 17"
LCD type. But I've just learned that you should only use 'native
resolution'. So far all the 17" models I've seen have native
resolution of 1280x1024, which I have trouble reading comfortably.

Anyone able to recommend a 17" LCD with 1024x768 please, available in
UK? It will have to be compatible with my 4 year old PC, an AMD Athlon
XP1800+, 512MB with 64MB NVidia Geforce2 MX graphics card.

    Go to http://www.newegg.com/app/manufact.asp?catalog=20&DEPA=0

    This screen will help you narrow down your choices. Of course model
    names can be different overseas and I'm not sure what "Max resolution"
    means for an LCD.

    I'd pick by size (17 inch) and dot potch.

    Go to your local computer store and view an LCD monitor while switching
    between 'native' and what you want. It is not required that you use
    'native', only recommended.

    Also, LCDs may come with ONLY DVI (Digital) inputs as opposed to analog or
    both so verify your video cards output.

    We've purchased everything from a $7K b&w for CAT/EMI's to a cheap $300
    LCD from the local computer place. Not one of them has been as clear/sharp
    as the average CRT type monitor. Save yourself the money and get a average
    priced ($250) CRT and you'll be happier than with the LCD.

    This is a good idea because buying an LCD without seeing the display
    first would be a mistake.. CRT monitors can be counted on to be pretty much
    adjustable over a wide range; LCD should be run at the native resolution
    because otherwise the 'scaled' image is not very good. Every LCD panel has
    some of its own characteristics; not all 19inch models look the same , for
    example. So, like the man said, go to your local store and look at the ones
    you like and compare. As for the readability of the text (if that's what you
    are talking about) you can change type size in Windows XP and use Clear Type
    from Microsoft which I would guess would make the text the way you like it..
    After you have used an LCD, a good one, for a short time, you will not
    go back to a regular monitor, trust me. Just don't buy a small screen (like
    a 15 or 17) get the best one you can afford and at least a 19inch..
