    Default Advice for LCD Monitors?

    Anyone know what's a good brand for LCD monitors for my desktop computer? I want to buy an LCD monitor so I don't have to use this big fat monitor that came with the desktop bundle.

    Nowadays you can get a decent 24 inch LCD monitor for under $200. I just got a new Samsung 2494 SW for that price, and that was before Black Friday. You can probably get an even sweeter deal during the big Turkey day sale.

    Acer is another decent low-end brand for the same price range. You can go to http://www.techbargains.com for daily deals on LCD monitors.

    i'm not loaded. if i were, i wouldn't have to go back to school.

    you have to weight the cost with quality. yes, a cheap monitor might save you a few bucks, but isn't having better resolution and a long lasting product also important?

    Samsung makes pretty good monitors but I also think LG is a good brand too.

    i actually think acer is a good brand for the money. that's the kind i have at work, and i do a lot of graphics stuff and the resolution is pretty good. i've been using it for 3 years and God knows how long my predecessors have used it.

    Price performance....Samsung.

    Due to several complaints, I will stop using the terms "Babe" and "Baby" in reference to our female counterpart. They will now be replaced with "B*tch."

    Ogakira, is that your monitor? My cousin's uncle also suggested I'd get a Samsung monitor. How many inches is yours?

    Does it matter what inches I get? Will my cpu adjust to the different screen size with the new monitor?

    Im almost tempted to use an "Arts" here but i will refrain.
    It's 22". I have the SAMSUNG T220HD 22" widescreen HDTV monitor. Can be used as a monitor or tv since it comes with a digital tuner. I got it to kill 2 birds with one stone. I could watch tv or hookup my xbox to get some gaming in. Comes with a tv remote.

    If you have an ok Video Card, it doesnt matter what screen size you get. Recent video cards do support high resolutions. But if the main purpose is for computing, you gunna want to stay with 22"-24" simply because the bigger the screen you're gunna have to sit farther away from it to get the whole view of the screen.

    As far as will you're video card support the video connectors, it should. Currently, monitors are shipping with DVI-D connectors. If you have a vid card with the older 15pin D-sub, you can just get an adapter. I dont recall but an adapter might be included with the monitor package.

    You can compare Samsung models here. POKE me!Under find and compare, select the screen size you prefer. Also helpful to read up on some reviews. Good luck!

    Sorry, SS. I have a very juvenile and perverse sense of humor.

    Hahaha! Very funny, you guys. I guess I wasn't thinking of the innuendo meanings of my questions. I just typed it quickly after coming home from a family TG dinner. Clean your gutter mind, guys.
