I think I'm finally getting an LCD monitor. I don't know anything about them, their lifespan or features other than true black is hard to get. I do a lot of photo and video hobby work but not serious enough for high end stuff.
I'm thinking of a 19" screen hopefully on sale/rebate for less than $200.
Could you give me some pointers on the features and which ones are important?
I saw these ads just today.
