    by a 20inch lcd from samsung, they're usually pretty good. Gonna cost you 200usd or so but its worth it.

    Save a little longer. for the best possible display (within reason). I just spent $299 on a 22" Viewsonic. I search and find the best deals. I do have to wait for a few rebates on an ongoing basis, but they are fun to get. I have found that when it comes to graphics, a person is always happier in the long run if they are not always wanting to upgrade (again).

    Absolutely fantastic philosophy, the most important part i think is "within reason". That is very hard to maintain. :)

    i just found this monitor: Viewsonic VX2235WM 22" Wide Screen LCD Monitor. which cost 28,999. just to remind 1$= 41Indian rupees. Any guess why do i have to more than 100% ? :( .

    SAMSUNG owns viewsonic any day of the week.

    I have a Samsung 19" Widescreen LCD moniter I just got a month or two ago and I did my research before buying it and it has the best features to cost ratio.

    It has
    2 Second Response Time (GTG)
    16.7 Million Colors
    2000:1 Contrast Ratio

    I have never noticed any bluring what so ever when playing games and movies look great on it. However if I was to buy it again I would have aimed for a larger screen because the recommended screen resoultion is 1444 * 900 and it's not exactly very popular, when it comes to supported screen resoultion in games.

    Its a Samsung SyncMaster 906BW, I payed 200 Bucks for it at the time

    They're excellent but you would probably have to wait like 6-8weeks(depending on screensize). They have several new product lines out but the claim is there is a shortage of manufacturing materials(glass) and some people ordering now have est. delivery dates of September. The 22 and 24 inch are especially popular. I don't know about availability in India though.

    you can get dell quality in other name brands, dell lcd's are overpriced just because most people are oblivious to what price/quality should be. Go with a samsung. Good price, good quality.

    I know for a fact that dell lcd moniters don't have the color quality a samsung does, esp. the upper class ones like smash's or my own.

    For example:

    Samsung - 16.7 million colors
    Dell - 16.2 million colors

    I just did the research...
