Default Need Advice on Monitor: ProView FV926

Hello All!

This place looks great. Hope someone can help.
Im in a little pickle at the moment.

I have this great system, built up from the bottom
up, runs really fast. Im a graphics designer and a gamer.
So, it's a wonder. Problem being, my Monitor is a 15" Samtron.

I have been looking around and have spotted a ProView FV926 19" Wide Screen LCD Monitor - Looks great and so does the price!

It has 5ms response time and 800:1 contrast. Very good I assume. But, I was hoping someone could give me the run down on this monitor - to see if its good for gaming and design.

Can anyone tell me if this is a good monitor to buy and will it last?

Thanks in advance guys.

the specs look good, not teriffic, but good. Im not familiar with that brand though...

If you want a really great lcd for gaming then you shouldnt go over a 17 inch, but thats only if your being REALLY picky. Also, since your a graphics designer, i assume youve used lcds before... but if not be warned that no lcd will give as good an image as a crt, theyre just not there yet.

so yeah basically... specs look good... no idea about the brand... before you get anything else definately look into samsungs, theyre the best if you can find one with what your looking for at a good price.
