For boardrooms and public spaces in need of a LCD conversation piece, the Dell Crystal might find a home. For those not operating on a bloated corporate budget, however, there are plenty of other 22-inch LCDs that cost a fraction of the cost.
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.
The Viewsonic VX2235wm isn't the best performer and it's not packed with extras, but it's worth a look, thanks to its size and relatively low price.
The touch display has a 10-point multitouch LED screen and a 1,920x1,080-pixel HD resolution IPS display.
The TD40 series mixes ergonomics and performance to enhance the Windows 8 touch-screen experience.
ViewSonic's new VP3280 delivers a super (duper) 32-inch 4K resolution screen.

The ViewSonic VP2365wb has solid performance, but its low brightness gives images an overall dull look.
The ViewSonic VG2427wm has a good assortment of ergonomic options and great performance, but its asking price is just a bit too high to recommend.
The 22-inch ViewSonic VX2255wmb features a wide-screen display framed by a consumer-friendly, piano-black bezel, but it lacks the extra video ports consumers can rightfully expect to find on an LCD these days. Its image quality is excellent, however, and it boasts a built-in Webcam and microphone.
Even if you don't care that ViewSonic's VG2030wm lacks HD DVD or Blu-ray support, we can't give this LCD monitor a strong recommendation simply because there are too many better, more capable displays on the market for the same price. Its image quality is fine, but that's not enough.
