  • Best Low-Price Quality Monitor

    Dec 21, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent value, great quality of graphics
    Cons: A bit big, not the flattest screen

    Summary: I used to have a 15" which suited my needs fine, but always fancied a 17" or maybe even a 19". But since I started using CAD programs, I knew that I would have to replace my monitor. This is by far the best deal I found. I found ... read more

    Pros: Gorgeous image, great colors, good value.
    Cons: Dropped pixels, interface design.

    Summary: I recently purchased the Samsung SyncMaster 950p monitor, after my room-mate displayed his to me. It's one of very few 19" displays now available under the 450$ dollar mark, and has comparable quality to a lot of products twice that price. ... read more

    Pros: Very low price, excellent picture quality, high resolution, great refresh rate, easy to use.
    Cons: quite big so takes up lots of desk space, not flat screen.

    Summary: About two months ago I bought a new computer, and needed a monitor so I started comparing them from reviews in magazines and online. At first I was mostly looking at 17" monitors because of budget restraints but then I noticed how inexpensive ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great picture, cheap
    Cons: Hard to find

    Summary: I just got mine today after trying to find one in stock for nearly 2 months, and it's everything that everyone says. I guess there are better monitors, but looking at this one I can't imagine what could be better. But the main reason I'm writing this is ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: great color depth, image clarity; convenient image size/geometry controls
    Cons: bulky, a little pincushioning

    Summary: I used to have a Radius 20-inch monitor (does that date me, or what!), and after 7 years, it gave up the ghost. Repair costs were ridiculous, the new 20-inch monitors were too expensive, so I set my sights on a slightly smaller monitor. I relied on the ... read more

    Pros: Good text and color
    Cons: Until text looks like the printed word I won't be satisfied.

    Summary: After reading numerous reviews, I followed PC World's recommendation and bought this from DELL for $210 - no tax, no freight. Of course later they had an even better deal. The screen quality appears to be as good the 19" Iiyama I use at work. ... read more

    Cons: It's big - and that's me reaching for a con.

    Summary: It was much earlier this year that I decided to take the plunge and build my own computer system for home. I figured this would be a cost-effective way of handling things, versus buying a complete system from a vendor. After a lot of research ... read more

    Summary: Monitors are a tough purchase. Even being fairly knowledgeable about dot pitch, refresh rates, etc., you still really need to sit in front of the thing and see if it floats your boat. The colors can vary from monitor to monitor (set by the ... read more

    Jan 27, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap, crisp text and pictures
    Cons: none too flat

    Summary: In this price range the first question should be, "really nice Sony 17", or cheap 19"?" If you are reading this, then I am assuming that you have already decided that Sony's are way too overpriced, but have $300-$500 to blow on a 'cheap' 19" monitor. ... read more
