NEC MultiSync E231W
The NEC MultiSync E231W offers a lot of features for a relatively low price.
EVGA InterView 1700 Dual Monitor System
While the EVGA InterView is expensive and doesn't offer much for the recreational user, productivity-obsessed business types will be pleased with its features.
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.
Samsung SyncMaster 953BW
The 19-inch Samsung SyncMaster 953BW performs well and has a low price; however, its competitors one-up it on both counts.
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.
Acer AL2216W is a bare-bones LCD monitor, but it represents a good value with its low price and relatively solid performance.
ViewSonic VX2235wm 22" Monitor
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 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 Gateway FPD2185W's excellent image quality, adjustability, extra features, and decent price make it tough to beat.
