Default Which 19" LCD?

I have had a look at some of the other threads and I cant decide on a 19" monitor around my price range, which is AUD$400 - $500 (USD $300 - $375). The three that I have found seem pretty good for all-round use.

- Samsung 940B
- Philips 190S6FB
- ViewSonic VX924

Yeah that's the one that I was leaning towards, for some reason. I have read some good reviews about the 940B and that it's a good LCD monitor for all round use.
Anyone else have any views?

k u want the viewsonic VP930B. the Viewsonic VX924 apparently has some backlight leakage problems, and the VX922 is not good at playing DVDs and shiz. get the VP930B, its in ur price range and is a GREAT monitor.

EDIT: dont mind my sig, i forgot to change the vx922 to vp930b, im just lazy.

VP930B

Yep, thats the best lcd in the 19" category, some have some bleeding problems but still...

Vx924 would be my second choice but i'd stretch to the VP930B if i were u

hmm... I don't think I will be able to stretch that far.
I wish those monitors were available in white, cos white monitors look wicked!
