I am looking for either a 19inch or 20inch widescreen monitor for my new computer build. I would like some suggestions on which are the best based on features and price. I am looking for one in black. thanks for the help.

    I don't buy anything but ViewSonic, never had any problems with their monitors.

    I saw a review on LCD's in Maximum PC a while back (less than a year) and I remember the Dell actually got the 2nd highest overall marks, but they recommended it as the "Best buy" as it was considerably cheaper than the one that got top marks. Dell's come in black.

    Otherwise I think Samsungs come pretty highly rated too.

    One thing I've learned to do throughout my 24 years in the computing environment (I'm 33 first machine was an Adam (Coleco!) Fjear...) Anyhow, I barely trust reviews from Magazines or shows especially when the review in done for a product of one of the main sponsors... Too biased.

    I use Dell's @ work because that's what corporate America has got suckered into. At home, I bought Dell laptops because they were dirt cheap and I got them via employer purchase discount. I have 4 laptops 3 Inspirons, 1 Latitude. Two Inspirons went back to Dell each two times for obnoxious problems. I've had memory replaced on all machines, two HD's replaced, one DVD/RW replaced within one year, one LCD went bonkers and the backlight just went out for no reason.... What does that say to me about Dell. (Mind you my machines are not abused in any way....) Desktops... I've seen tons of desktops go bad at work. Memory, hard drives, cdrom's, you name it. Servers.. Same. Would I spend another dime on Dell? Just as fast as I would take my paycheck and throw it in the fireplace for heat. Won't happen.

    LG makes some nice models, I have an L1718S at home and it's done nothing but wonders for me. Works fine, never had any issues with it. It becomes a matter of preference... Do you want a name or do you want quality. Name? Stick with Dell. Quality? Anything BUT Dell... Just my opinion. On the other hand, if Dell were to pay me advertising fees, I would rave about how nice their (psst... Mr. Dell check signer... What exactly did you want me to rave about again? ... Oh yea) about how nice their well yea is...

    I like ViewSonics, but I also use Dell's.

    So far no problems with either.

    Good point. Opinions from 4-5 strangers on the Internet are much better. icon_lol.gif

    agreed.

    LG & Samsung are also good...Acer has stylish wide screens at good prices if you're concerned about that.
