Need a new moniter, whats best?

Got my good new PC working but lost a moniter at the same time....
Just looking for a new moniter. The old one was a LG 19", it was getting old.
I would like to get a new one thats not to expensive any ideas?
I still want it to be good ofc, nothing too flash but a nice moniter at a good price.

  1. What's your price range and ideal size? A really sweet monitor is the Samsung 245BW. (24" 1900x1200 - low latency) It's about $400+.
  2. I've also heard good things about the Samsung 226BW (22" 1680x1050) for $320 at Newegg.

    Questions that should be asked, though:
    1) What do you use your system for?
    2) What are the specs of the new system, in particular, the graphics card?

  3. few weeks ago, i was lookin into buying a new LCD for gaming purposes and I checked all of samsungs and viewsonic
    226bw is indeed prolly one of the best but i think 206bw might be a bit better (smaller pixels)
    206bw is 20" tho and since i want to plug HDTV on it, i went for 2" bigger (226bw) ;) ima use that with gf9 (when it comes out)
  4. I bought a 22" Acer AL2216W LCD Monitor, and after rebates got it for UNDER $200 and love it so far. I do dual monitor with this, and my older Hyundai L90D+ 19" LCD.

    I usually shop newegg, but found this on TigerDirect for a rocking deal.
  5. All depends on how much you are willing to spend. If you're on a tight budget then stick with monitors with TN panels like the ones the others posters suggested. If you're willing to spend more try and get a P-MVA or S-IPS panels as they have much better image quality. I've had 3 lcd's with TN panels and when I got one with a P-MVA panel I was amazed by the difference in image quality, colors and viewing angles. If you have the money gor for quality !

    Well the one I got is pretty good http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824014133 lots of input options, pip. It's not cheap but if you want quality this one does a great job. I also read good things about this one http://accessories.dell.com/sna/products/Monitors/productdetail.aspx?c=ca&l=en&s=dhs&cs=cadhs1&sku=320-5647 from Dell.
