The monitors listed below represent our favorites of the ones we've reviewed.
With a high price-to-performance ratio, the Monoprice IPS-Glass Panel Pro will satisfy most bargain hunters; however, there are better options for a few dollars more.
The VGA-only HP L1906 is as functionally simple as LCDs get these days, and while there's nothing wrong with simplicity, other 19-inch LCDs, such as the Westinghouse LCM-19v5, have more features and cost less.
The Samsung HU9000 has straight-up great picture quality, design and features, but the gratuitous curved screen adds very little to the viewing experience and way too much to the price.
The Lenovo ThinkVision L1940p costs a bit more than competing 19-inch LCD monitors, but its many ergonomic features and great overall performance could persuade those not shopping on price alone.
If someone else is footing the bill, HP's expensive ElitePad 900 and its accessory ecosystem cover a lot of bases, but this isn't going to be a consumer crossover product.
A high-end laptop at a mainstream price, the HP Envy Spectre XT gets much of the look and feel right, with only a few missteps.
The Sony SDM-HS75P/S is an attractive, glossy 17-inch LCD that's better suited for movies and games than for serious work.

Though it boasts plenty of ports and a physical keyboard, the SlateBooks x2's offerings don't quite match its $480 price.
HP's entry in the growing tabletop PC field, the 20-inch Envy Rove 20, is a fun family PC, but it really should have a full 1080p display.
HP's new Micro Thin monitor is a simple, straightforward offering without much in the way of exciting features.
