Looking for a new flatscreen monitor

Post by Stask » Tue May 12, 2009 5:47 pm

Ok, I don't have any parameters yet, not even a price range. Just point me in the right direction of any computer monitor websites and I'll do the rest.

www.newegg.com

acer makes good value displays. however, if you get a resolution higher than what your using, your computer will suffer at pushing higher resolution

If you just want something cheap and basic that works good, you can't beat this deal right now.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6824009127
$40 off + free shipping = $99 shipped

This is what I ordered for the system I just built for my girlfriend. If you are looking for a high end display, I've been impressed by Dell monitors.

yup, dell monitors are on par with the quality of any other monitor, including the samsung, viewsonic, and as far as image quality, even the apple displays (which i find overrated in anyway)

Dell 2408WFP - $479 (free shipping, but YMMV)

Dell 2209WA 22" LCD Monitor - $200 + Tax + Free Ship. *SMALL BUSINESS DEAL*

Hanns 28" LCD- $300 - Costco

- Got these just from doing a search in anandtech hot deals (see my sig) for "LCD".
- Newegg, ZipZoomFly (ZZF) are the vendors I've used to buy stuff
- Anandtech Hot Deals, Slickdeals, Fatwallet, etc. are where I look for tech bargains

Best of luck counselor

WTF "Because of manufacturer rules, we are not allowed to show our current price for this item."
It's the thought that counts, not how many people die because of it.
