Default Which monitor/brand would YOU buy?

Newegg.com - KDS K-92MDWB Black 19" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP support 300 cd/m2 800:1 Built in Speakers - Retail

Newegg.com - ViewEra V193D-B Black 19" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 800:1 Built in Speakers - Retail

Newegg.com - Hanns·G HB-191DPB Black 19" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2400:1(DCR) Built in Speakers - Retail

edit - I want at least decent sound for built-in speakers. So should I just get the ViewEra one?

I wouldn't choose a screen based on speakers, it's a waste of money. Better get quality monitor and spend some money on speakers afterwards.

No, I narrowed down the search to 3 monitors thanks to newegg's search engine. I guess those are the only 3 that it recognizes. Anyway. I hate when ever I clean my stuff, trying to keep dust from getting in there. And I see a mess of wires. Just a preference to have less wires and built in speakers. And I can hardly tell a difference between my brothers 5.1 system by Sony and his LCD speakers turned on max. Just don't have an ear for that stuff.

I'd probably go with the hanns-g. Never heard of viewera, and i didnt even realize kds was still around.

Also viewsonic monitors usually have speakers built in also.

Thanks. I must of messed up with the search because I wanted ViewSonic as a final choice. My brother has one, and it seemed like a good monitor.

I would say so. How can you not tell the difference between a 5.1 and a lcd speaker? Lcd built in speakers blow. Very one dimensional. Hanns G is the better brand though

I like Hanns-G monitors. They are great screens for the money, I own one and couldn't be more happier.

Heh my old 19" CRT was a KDS. Lasted about 3 years before it started acting up. Was a good looking monitor though.
