  1. I was looking to go from my 22 inch NEC FE2111(too big) to an LCD monitor; However, I can't seem to make up my mind. I've narrowed it down to the Viewsonic VP191B ($449.00 at newegg) or the BenQ FP91G+ ($329.00 at newegg). I've heard nothing but good things about BenQ, and I already know the excellent reputation of Viewsonic. I do alot of gaming so that's an important factor. I know CRT has better visual quality than LCD, but I need to conserve space, so any input on these 2 monitors would be appreciated.

    We use Viewsonic 17'' at my work & they r ok. Although I have a BENQ at home & I find it way better than the others. I had an LG one b4 & seriously the BENQ not only looks better but was cheaper too! they r owned by Acer or some other joint big organisation & are not crappy at all. others have said that because they haven't heard of them then they must be crap, but you just have to research them b4 judging.

    Either r good ... but yeah thats just my opinion :grinthumb

    because you'er going to be gaming, it's important that your display has a fast reaction time. just make sure you're thinking of it when you make the decision.

    If there's ANY way you can view both monitors....both up-and-running.....using the environment you plan on using, gaming in this case, that would be your best-case-scenario. Response times and other information can now be fudged by lcd makers....there's too many variables to take into account. Better if the judgement is made visually.

    Just my $.02

    That's the reason I'm asking this question. I'm hoping someone has used these monitors and has feedback. These can only be found on line, so I'm unable to view.
