LG Flatron W2053TQ
The LG Flatron W2053TQ has useful power consumption options, but a badly designed onscreen display.
The HP 2009m is a good-looking 20-inch display with enough features to make it well worth its low price.
It skimps on a few features, but the Samsung SyncMaster P2370 is a stylish, low-priced 23-incher with very good performance.
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.
It's a little shy on features, and we wouldn't recommend the HP w2007 for HD movie watching. Then again, we wouldn't suggest you use any 20-inch LCD for that purpose. What we did like was the overall image quality of this display, which we found outstanding, and it's ultimately what saves the monitor.
The Dell E207WFP's low price makes it a worthwhile budget LCD contender, as long as you don't need high performance or extra features.
Samsung SyncMaster 204B
The Samsung SyncMaster 204B can handle productivity and entertainment tasks, but there are less expensive alternatives that offer comparable image quality and superior features.
The LaCie 120 offers excellent performance and ergonomic flexibility, but it's much more expensive than other LCDs that are just slightly inferior.
Dell UltraSharp 2007WFP
The Dell UltraSharp 2007WFP, a 20-inch wide-screen LCD, serves up a winning combination of features, image quality, and adjustability--all for a very reasonable price.
Samsung SyncMaster 204T
We found nothing inherently wrong with the Samsung SyncMaster 204T, a 20-inch LCD with an attractive design, decent image quality, and useful software, but other monitors offer more features for the price.
