    I am looking at getting a 19" LCD monitor for home use (gaming, phtoshop/graphics, web browsing). I am looking at the DELL 1901FP, anyone have this one? If not anyone got some suggestions for brand/model?

    I was looking at this one also, 700:1 contrast ratio, but no DVI :ugh:
    Sony SDM-HS93:

    Get something DVI. Not a fan of Sony's LCDs. A nice one is the Viewsonic VX900 I think is the model. 19" DVI..etc Nice monitor. Mitsubishi makes good monitors too.

    Haven't seen a mitsubishi monitor for sale anywhere... will look now that I know they make LCDs.

    As for the viewsonics I have seen a couple of their monitors. THe PQ looks alright, the body on the monitor though always looks bulky. Eh, anyway do they have a model that does potrait and landscape under 700?

    Yeah man, I love that 17". It kills my laptop display too. When I build a new desktop machine, I'm going to be investing a lot of money in displays.
