CNET's reviews of the best desktop computers include photos, video, and user reviews
The HP 2709m's lack of features makes it less desirable than HP's own similarly priced w2558hc.
The HP Envy 27-inch IPS monitor with Beats Audio goes long on sound while still giving image quality its due.
NEC's MultiSync LCD1960NXi is surprisingly good with video, but there are other less expensive 19-inch LCDs that offer superior overall image quality.
The SyncMaster 910T is a sharp-looking 19-inch LCD with good image quality, lots of adjustability options, and a decent price.
The VP191b has almost everything we look for in an LCD, but graphics pros will expect better performance for the price.
As long as you have no advanced demands, the Pavilion 27xi will meet your basic needs with aplomb.
This nicely priced 17-inch LCD from a reputable manufacturer is a good choice for home use, but for gamers and businesspeople, its image quality and adjustability leave a lot to be desired.
This LCD is great for Power Mac G4 owners and publishing professionals, but consumers can save several hundred dollars on the older 17-inch Apple Studio Display.
Apple's new 27-inch iMac will charm plenty of you with its screen size alone. Fortunately, that won't lead you astray. Behind its expansive display, Apple has packed one of the fastest all-in-ones available, and added a few useful extras to sweeten the deal. This iMac isn't perfect, but its positives far outweigh its negatives. We can think of few users to whom we wouldn't recommend this system.
Thanks to its incredible viewing angle, high resolution, and stellar overall picture quality, Samsung's 30-inch SyncMaster 305T gets an assured recommendation.
