S! all

I've been out shopping and researching all over the net but still I'd feel foolish if I didn't ask here. I'm looking for atleast a 19". Any suggestions? (I did try the search engine here 1st)

Viewsonic. The best model you can afford.

I bought a Hansol 19". Pretty good, nice colours, good refresh rate. But when I can afford it, I'll buy the best 19" Viewsonic I can get.

I work at Best Buy and I can say that the Viewsonics are EXCELLENT...... I have been looking at a LCD but I am waiting for the prices to drop a little more. Samsung also makes a very nice monitor.

I have ViewSonic P810 Professional Series 21-inch monitor and it is unbelievable, I couldn't be happier. And I got it refurbished at a computer show for $170. One of the best buys of my life. Picture is amazing and no problems at all. This monitor is usually very expensive but it had a tiny (and I mean tiny) scratch that is not even visible when the monitor is on. Amazing, I would buy another ViewSonic in a second but I don't think I'll get rid of this one for a long time. Check out a computer show in your area.

Oh, and I had an NEC 19-inch monitor before this and it doesn't even compare. And the NEC was very nice as well. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I did a lot of looking around for a 19" flat prior to buying - from what I dug up the Viewsonic G90f and Benq (aka Acer) P992 were the best of the lower cost monitors in the class. They both have good image quality and features - and excellent value for money.
I ended up with the Viewsonic G90f, very happy with it at 390 Aussie pesos (~230 US).
Either of these will run 1600x1200 at 75Hz.

Cheers

Bearcat,

I bought a ViewSonic p90f last year because the specs looked really good. I'm not too pleased with it though. I can't get sharp text above 1152x864. Tried all tweaks without success. Do you have any experience with these monitors? Are they all this bad or do I have a lemon?

Viewsonic G90f, I searched and searched for days and couldn't find a CRT that could match the price for the specs.

You might have a lemon......or need a better vid card...... from what I have seen at the store all the Viewsnic owners love them.
