obviously its all up to you... but dont let dells bad rep for computers pull you away from their monitors... a lot of people consider their LCDs to be the best around... but yeah if you really dont want to buy from then then samsung all the way... dont skimp on the monitor though... if you get a cheap one youll wish it was nicer everytime you look at the picture!!!

haha yeah thats why i said samsung or dell THEY ARE THE BEST LCDs and for the record, ive ordered from dell three times and the service has always been great... to be honest i think that they just have a bad rep on this site perpetuated a lot by people who havent actualy delt with them... the only things id avoid with them are the things that are obviously overpriced (ie their prebuilts) but their monitors are actualy priced pretty well


anyway ill stop bothering you about dell... heres a samsung similar to the dell ultrasharp... faster though

edit...just saw your new post the widescreen 940b would be nice too, and cheaper... it just depends on whether you andt the widescreen or normal... also look up your choices on newegg, just so you can read all of the reviews

not seeing that one on newegg... do you mean the 940be? that one looks good. cheaper too.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824001077

same specs as mine and i like mine a lot... picture isnt quite as good as with my old crt, but no lcd is that good yet if ever, in any case, the only time i even notice is when im watching really low quality movies (like stuff on youtube fullscreen)
