    I'm going to buy a new LCD monitor and its either going to be the Samsung 191T+ (19" LCD), or 2 15" LCD's? The cost comes out to be about $50 more to have 2 15" LCD's.

    What would OT do?

    :dunno:

    If I didn't play games, I think I would get two 15". But since I do I like having a 19".

    :ugh: I have a 21" CRT and hated it, I called up Viewsonic and complained for almost 2 months. They finally agree'd they would just take it back and 4 days later I got my $650 in the mail, if been without a monitor for 6 months now and just can't handle it.

    I want the 19" LCD but it has 25ms and a 1280x resolution on a 19" LCD is :wtc:

    19" LCD - 25ms is good for most games.

    It was to fucking big (size), I loved having a 20" screen but ontop of that I got interferance with everything around me (It created lines all over the monitor).

    19 > two 15 if you play games and such. There is really no need for 2 monitors except the "hey look at me" factor.

    Step up to a 20" LCD for the 1600x1200 resolution. 1280x1024 resolution on a 19" LCD is :ugh:.

    I have 2 17" LCD's at work and absolutely love it, but truly at home I have no need for it. It going to be hard to change back to one. :wtc:

    20" LCD jump up another $600 I would WAY rather have 2 19" LCD's than 1 20/21" LCD.

    What are you doing with them?

    What didn't you like about your Viewsonic 21?

    Wrong. Programming and web design is 20x better if you have two monitors. That way you can work on one and have stuff like APIs, google searches, movies, or OT on the other.

    Doesn't matter if they're in stock or not, you can still order them and they'll ship it when they receive.

    Yep, then just put in your name as the name of your business. I've gotten some GREAT prices this way.

    19 if its mostly for games and movies. (2 screens will confuse a lot of games and movie players.) 15 if its more for surfing web. writing essays, or coding etc. (easier on two screens.)
