The monitors listed below represent our favorites of the ones we've reviewed.
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.
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.
With a fast pixel-response rate, the ViewSonic VX924 is a great LCD for gaming and watching DVDs, but it's not for the color-conscious.
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.
The 19-inch ViewSonic VX922's fast 2-millisecond pixel response makes for stellar gaming performance, but DVD playback disappoints; nongamers may be better served by a more adjustable LCD.
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.
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.
