Hey

I am looking after a good LCD (good imagine quality) that also is able to play games like CS:S and Unreal Tournament 2004 (fast games).
I have looked at Samsung 913N and Hyundai L90D+ which one would you chose, or if you have another possibility then please tell.

Kind regards

Sebastian Aslund

There has been tons of factual information and opinion on those two offerings and many more in this forum. I recommend you take a gander at all that has been stated already.

Oki, thanks for the links.

I do not know who C.S. Lewis is but I can tell you that my original name is Sebastian Aslund, so there from comes Aslund.

ps. Do you know how hyundai's politic is about pixel faults?

ok.

I am a bit nervous buying a LCD because of pixel faults and here gives Samsung an excellent warrenty.
Should I be nervous or ?

In the end you go for it or you don't.
I look at it like this:
These LCDs would not be selling as well as they are if bad pixel faults were a common thing.
I haven't heard much bad press about the samsung panels from anyone I have seen post here at Tom's.
I have owned 3 LCDs myself - 2 17's and a 19. one of the 17s and the 19 have samsung panels and I have never seen a bad pixel. The other is a viewsonic and I don't know who made the panel but it dosen't seem to have any bad pixels either.
When I have heard about pixelation happening with numbers under the manufactures limit I don't ever remember anyone saying it made the panel unusable, but of course that isn't a scientific analysis.
Bottom line - its up to you. Read and study more and then decide

I recently picked up a 17" Iiyama 435S for £184 (UK Pounds) from www.pcnextday.co.uk and it is easily the best I have seen so far with 10ms refresh, VGA & DVI, 3 year new-replacement warranty, no dead pixels.

Play a lot of HL2, CS:Source, UT. Needed to mess with the colour temps and gamma when I first got it but once it was set-up right, bl00dy fantastic.
