I need some suggestions on which 17inch LCD to choose. I've been looking at the Planar PX171M which is similar to the Viewsonic VP171B ( aside the fact that the viewsonic has a higher contrast ratio ). The NEC 1760V also caught my attention but it has no DVI to my knowledge, and the 1760NX does not have the 16ms response time.
Does the 1760NX have 16 ms response time? Because on the DELL website it has two response time posted...one for 16 ms and one for 30ms. I always thought that it had 30ms.
Besides the Q17A, any other suggestions? I know the Q17A is highly recommended by THG, but someone in the forum also mentioned that they are not sure whether or not Hyundai will be using the same panel as they did on the Q17A before. So I'm not really sure when is the best time to purchase a new LCD.
Here Nec is almost a 100$ cheaper than Viewsonic (which costs 700$- due to duties and VAT )
But now i have a final three to choose from:
Nec 1760NX Viewsonic V171B and Samsung 959NF (I'm hardcore gamer so I still consider CRT ) so i'm going to the shop and will ask them to show me these trio in action if the ghosting will be aceptable i will get LCD.
Oh I've read that V171B is discontinued product
I heard a lot of reviews from this forum and others about the viewsonic and it seems like a lot of people like it but they don't really go into detail. If someone can direct me to somewhere I can find reviews on 1760NX owners, I will greatly appreciate it since I need to make the decision between the two by tonight. Thanks
I am also looking for a 17" TFT and I have made my choice unless someting unexpected happens. I will get the new Samsung 172X, they're in the process of releasing it now, available here in europe in late september or early october. This monitor has Samsung's new 16 ms panel. Best thing is, it will sell for just over $600, ca-ching!
Yes it has DVI. The only two things dissapoint me about this TFT is the 0.289 dot pitch and I don´t know if it displays 16.7m colours truly because I`ve read only 16.2m in the specs so maybe it lacks in the same way of the AUO panel?
