    The Samtron supports a higher resolution, 1920x1440, so you could fit more on the screen with that resolution. I've never heard of Samtron, and only vaguely heard of Iiyama, so I don't know if either are of good quality. I took a chance on my monitor and got a off brand that was half price on sale, it's been pretty good, although not as good as some name brands, but for the price it's excellent, but manufacturers vary.

    It's also kind of hard(for me) to tell much else about the monitors, since the pages aren't in English. (what language is that, pardon my ignorance, I can decipher some of it though :)).
    Edit: I guess it's Dutch.

    yeah its dutch ;) .

    I'm worried about the brand names, I mean i've never heard of samtron or Iiyama
    either and maybe they are not of such a good quality since their so cheap....

    I hope someone who has one of these brands can tell me more, or knows more
    about moniters.

    thanks for the reply though :)

    The Samtron is definitely the better product (dot-pitch 0.20 against 0.26 for Iiyama).
    It's also slightly smaller in size.
    Go for it, I would if I didn't already have my 19" Sony Trinitron Multiscan 420GS!

    Iiyama may be better known than Samtron, but that's no reason not to take the other one.
