What size monitor do you have?
by Crossfire / August 19, 2005 / 4:28 AM UTC

I am very satisfied with my EIZO FlexScan T961 21" one of the best Brand for Monitors in the World and I would`nt change with another one of the new technic like LCD, because you can watch on the screen also with an angle of 30 degrees or more without any loss of Lightness.
Just wonderful.

Not the cheapest, or the fastest at 25 ms, but I'm not a gamer so dont' care. It perfectly fast enough for movies in my expereince. As a photographer I got it for its fantastic image quality, colour accuracy and adjustability, and have been delighted with it.

17" Tube
by Uncle Bob / August 19, 2005 / 4:32 AM UTC

I was going to go from the 14" tube monitor I,d been using to a 17" flat screen, but discovered that they only work properly (ie without distorting the image)on very high resolution, and that made all the type and icons tmuch too small for comfort. Also I was very disappointed with the sharpness - or lack of it. So I opted for a 17" Iiyama tube monitor, which I'm vey pleased with.

Searched 'net for days for reasonable priced adapter to use this monitor on PC. 50 bucks was cheapest. Stopped by local shop and found one, in junk pile, for $2.99.

Samsung SyncMaster 760V TFT

I have looked at other sized monitors. 17 inch is perfect for me. I wear Bi-focals and the bigger screens overwhelm me.

I have used a 17'' Samsung for a number of years until recently I upgraded to the newer model 713N and could hardly believe the outstanding difference. The new one is fantastic compared to the older model. It was so remarkable that I bought a second one the next day and now use two Samsung 17'' monitors side by side. I should have done this years ago as it is such a great way to work on a report or project on one screen, while doing research on the other, instead of squeezing more than one window on one screen. Now that the prices have dropped drastically it was well worth it. (My first color monitor was an IBM (10 or 11 inch,) which retailed for $3,000. and I was able to get it for $1,500. at a close out sale.)

I have a Mac G4 and was using a 713N monitor. Worked fine but intermittently the display is horizontally off the screen to the left. The driver they included is for a PC. What happened? Will appreciate help. Thanks

by arbee / August 19, 2005 / 5:21 AM UTC

Had a Samsung 171S and replaced it with a Samsung 713N. The improvement is astounding. Try one from Best Buy or Costco and if you don't like it return it. I bought two from Costco because they were so impressive and a week later they dropped $80.00 in price and I received a $160.00 refund!

My monitor is 15.4" and part of my Vaio K35 laptop. It has the "X-Brite" technology which makes it exceptionally clear (as good as any I've seen).

Laptop - it's the way to go...
by smartipants / August 19, 2005 / 5:25 AM UTC

I'm on an IBM ThinkPad with a monitor of about 14.5". I'll probably never go back to a desktop computer. It takes me about 4 minutes to disconnect all of my peripherals and pop the puter into the case to take to school, on the road, etc. I love the portability. The screen is a very clear 1024x768 LCD. Never has any glare like a glass screen. :o)

Laptop + external disply
by baldwinl / August 19, 2005 / 6:20 PM UTC

Hey - I am a laptop guy too, but both of my laptops have external monitors, my M60 (15.5" built in LCD) has a 21" external, and my D600 (14" built in) has a 15" external sceen. I put the external monitor right next to the laptop display and set Windows to span my desktop across both screen. This is a great way to work. On the big setup, I also use an external keyboard and trackball.....
