Hi guys! I want to buy a new monitor (my old 17'' is dying). The size should be under 19'' and the budget is under 150$ What would the best choice be? Also, it should be from here and should have a DVI socket: source .

Thanks in advance

I have owned several brands of monitors over the years, but by no means enough of them to judge completely. But of the ones I've owned, the Asus brand has been the best for the price; no DOAs, no stuck pixels, no failures. If you stay with an 18.5" monitor, you will have basically a 720p HDTV resolution (1366x768). If you can see upping your selection to a 19" monitor, you will get the higher 1440x900 resolution. I would suggest you find one there that has the DVI input you need.

They did not have in stock the model of ASUS I wanted, so I chose this one: PHILIPS 21,5" 227E3LHSU LED

Aspect ratio: 16:9
Optimum resolution: 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz
Signal Input: VGA (Analogue), DVI-D (digital, HDCP), HDMI
Audio In/Out: Earphone out (3.5 mm jack) x 1, PC audio-in


I ordered it at 130€ ( aprox. 170 usd ) from a local retailer :D  (tomorrow I'll go pick it up) . Did I make a good deal?

It's probably OK, but you told everyone you wanted a monitor less than 19". That meant a monitor with 1366x768 or 1440x900 resolution. If you are a gamer, you will need a more capable graphics card to run games at 1920x1080 resolution than a monitor that's 18" or 19".

I wanted an 19'' monitor because I was intending to use it as an dual monitor, but I found a buyer for the old monitor, so it would be a better future investment to buy a larger screen.

Note: I do not play video games, but I need a large screen because I use many android emulators when programming apps

P.S. thanks everyone for the help . Oh and can someone mark this thread as closed?
