Default Best 19"+ LCD Monitor?

Hey guys,

I am pondering whether I should I buy an LCD (from CRT ) and I don't really know which brands (out of Samsung, LG, BenQ and Philips) to buy.

I am looking for a 19" to a 20" LCD monitor (12ms or less and 700:1 or more contrast ratio) and I am hoping for any Australians to help me, since that's where I live and I can get a good idea of how much it would cost me at my area, but any suggestions of brands is great.

Thanks guys

I really like my Samsung Syncmaster 940B, however color correcting it was a terrible, terrible experience.

i personally recommend ACER for monitors, because i've had good experience with their older CRT monitors, and i tried an LCD of theirs, and its very good color and response time.

I have a Samsung 930B, am happy with it for the most part. The color and clarity blows away my old CRT. Just make sure you have a video card that can handle the native resolution.
