HP Pavilion 27xi
As long as you have no advanced demands, the Pavilion 27xi will meet your basic needs with aplomb.
Well-priced and powerful, the Asus PB278Q is the best entry point for those seeking an extreme-definition monitor at a not-so-extreme price.
Samsung SyncMaster T27B750ND
The Samsung SyncMaster T27B750 offers a giant coffer's worth of features and sports a beautiful design, but its performance was underwhelming.
The Asus PA248Q is a low-priced IPS monitor that doesn't skimp on performance or features.
Sony PlayStation 3D display
While there's some pretty impressive technology built inside, the PlayStation 3D Display isn't a very practical device. Its $500 price tag is too much money considering its laundry list of shortcomings.
With its large number of features and low price, the BenQ EW2420 is one of the best monitor bargains available.
Pricing not available
The LaCie 324i is a decently priced pro monitor that performs well but unfortunately can't compete in bang-for-buck terms with offerings from Dell and NEC.
The Dell ST2420L is a decent monitor for its price, but there are other monitors with similar prices that offer much more.
The Asus VG236H is a decent performing monitor that includes enough extras to justify its price.
The Acer H233H is a good-performing general-purpose monitor with a welcome number of connections at a low price.
