I'm going to get the 20" Samsung with the DVI cable included and Height adjustable stand. Viewsonic doesn't have the height adjustable stand. The Samsung is $199.99 without rebate or shipping at Costco.com. I have a $30 coupon.

my recommendation is not based on the price, but rather the quality for its price.

And I don't understand what you mean by Samsung monitors being...elegant? What's elegant? does it have like diamonds and flamboyant feathers on them or something? Everytime I go to best buy and look at the Samsung TV's they all look crackly and fuzzy compared to Sony and the like, maybe I'm just paranoid about Samsung cause like I said...everything I buy from them stops working after a year, and my friends Samsung big screen TV sucks, has input lag and is crackly.
i mean their monitors... look freaking awesome.... lmao, thats what happens when a geek tries to act sophisticated

Are you serious?!?!?

You obviously dont know much about TV's. Samsung is one of the best if not the best in TV's on the market right now.

Yeah, I heard Samsung is like top 2 brands in tv's. I heard most people don't know how to set their Samsung tv's(because there are so many options they put into the tv's) so the image doesn't look good.

Maybe his friend doesn't know how to use the Samsung... either that, or he bought a budget Samsung (if there is such a thing....).

I have a LG 20.1" Widescreen. I love it. Not one dead pixel from shipping.

I vote LG or Samsung
