    i'm very tempted to spend a little extra and get the new dell 20.1" 2001fp monitor...it has a 1600x1200 resolution which is what i like to have my screen at and i have read a lot of great reviews

    any other good monitors out there that are 19" or bigger and under $800

    The LG 19" flat panel is a pretty good deal. It's $749 from Best Buy and I think there's a $50 rebate. I have the 17" LG flat panel and I love it. It supports both Digital and Analog video.

    i went ahead and took the leap for the 2001fp...found one brand new for 779 shipped

    i just couldn't deal with anything lower than 1600x1200 on such a big screen

    I was wondering, are there any 19" monitors under 700 which have a better resolution than 1280 by 1024? Many of them seem to max out at that resolution as do many 17" models. I'm having trouble justifying buying a 19" over a 17"

    I'm looking do spend $700 max. Anyone have any suggestions? That dell 21" for $800 is barely out of my budget :(

    dell monitor today only is $719 with free shipping

    i got it awhile back for about $770 or so shipped and it works better than i could have asked for...more than enough inputs and 1600x1200 resolution = win

    can't go wrong with this monitor as most 19" flat panels are above that price

    Damn, that's a good deal. The $30 discount only applied to the 1500 orders :eek3: I definitly have some time to think about this one.

    How are you enjoying your 2001fp?

    couldn't be happier...have my gamecube hooked upto the component input...usb 2.0 inputs get used a lot too...and 1600x1200 resolution on an lcd = :bowdown:

    from my reading this is pretty much one of the best lcd's out right now and it is fairly cheap compared to other 19 and 21" monitors

    It's crazy that most 19" lcd's still only do 1280 x 1024 when I'm sitting here using a laptop with a 15.4" screen that does 1920 x 1200. I'd have to go with a 23" stand-alone LCD right now to get the same resolution on my desktop.

    That 19" Dell looks good though. May have to pick one of those up later this year. I've been promising my dad that I'd give him my 19" CRT as soon as I find an LCD I like to take it's place. That one looks like it will do the trick!
