LCD monitor recommendations?

by bobmckee / August 24, 2005 12:29 PM PDT

I recently had a bad run in with a pair of defective Dell 2005FPWs. I'd like to replace it with something compareable to the 2005FPW but not from Dell.

This (below) looks the same but I can't find user reviews of this thing anywhere. Anyone got one or know someone who does? Anything good or bad to say about Acer products or service?


I guess my next option would be this one below, but its like a hundred more than the Acer everyplace I can find it. (and nearly two hundred more than I found the 2005FPW going for when you catch it on sale)


So... opinions? I'd like to aim for the $450-650 range.

I would look at sony or samsung, they make pretty good lcds also. If you have the money, get a sharp lcd tv and use it as a monitor.

Rich dude. I've been called a lot of things but thats a first. Happy I live in apartment and have empty WB Mason paper boxes as and end table in my living room.

I am a programmer and a designer, so I spend way to much time on the computer. I think I can justify the expense.

Thanks for the advice!

Thanks for the recommendation Alan. Will definitely consider Planar.

I should point out that I am looking for something 20 or more inches, max res of 1600x1200 or 1680x1050 for widescreen. Thats why getting something good for under $650 has been a bit of an issue. Thanks!

Excellent! Right specs, right price. Still looking a little bit more (too tramatized by Dell to act hastely), but right now thats my top pick.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
