The first one, the Hanns G HANDS DOWN. Hanns G's picture quality are amazing for the price, my friend has one and it's very bright and very clear. 180 bucks for a 19in Widescreen with only 5ms response time is an excellent deal. Also it's free shipping!!! You can't pass up on a deal like that, I wish I didn't have to buy another gig or ram and headphone or I would buy it so fast.

How much is 300 CAD though? You can't beat that Hanns-G for that money. There aren't any better monitors for quite a few more bucks.

SCEPTRE X20WG-Naga Black 20.1" 5ms (GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 Built in Speakers - Retail

$229.99

I'm playing on this right now. I got it with no dead pixels out of the box, and it's been great. Be sure to hook up a DVI to this bad boy and not VGA. Huge difference between this and my old monitor. There is no flaw at all.

You can't compare monitors just by specs, in my opinion any monitor with 8ms response time or less is good enough, also don't get contrast confused with dynamic contrast. You can also hardly say that one brand is so much better than the other when you're talking A-brands, because all of the listed monitors have a TN panel and so they all have the same limitations.

In my opinion 20" screens are a big leap forward due to the increase in resolution... from 17" to 19" there is no increase in resolution. In my opinion you'll get value for money if you buy a screen like that 20.1" Sceptre, especially with the $30 mail-in rebate making it $199.

Yeah, The 20.1in is the way to go because of the resolution increase, but if you want something a bit bigger go with a 22"
