Hey,

I have had a look at previous threads regarding this but with the way technology is they seem to be a bit outdated. I want advice on a brand/model of monitor fitting these criteria:

-Around $250-$400
-19 to 23 inch
-LCD
-Warranty (1-3 years)
-Use for a little bit of gaming/watching movies/general browsing

There are so many brands out there, what should i be looking for?

Any suggestions?


Thanks.

Viewsonic or Samsung are the only brands I'd touch.

Lol? LG, and BenQ are also pretty decent. Dell and HP make execellent IPS monitors.

They probably use the same panels as other brands
go to tftcentral.co.uk and type in the model number of the monitor you want in the panel search. It will tell you which manufacturer makes that panel.

You can then enter that panel in the panel search to see what other monitors use that same panel.

Dell one's aren't too bad either as I've found out. Otherwise LG or Samsung will be good too.

Basically, you pays your money and takes your chances. None of us can tell you how any monitor will be in 3 year's time.

Last couple I bought were LG - look good so far!!
