I'm moving into my dorms next month and thought it was time to get rid of that old yellowing CRT. Seeing as how the workspace on my laptop can get pretty cluttered, I was looking for a 17-18 inch month thats relatively cheap and still pretty decent. What are your recommendations?
Probably one of the best investments I've ever made. Save for a little bit longer and I promise you wont be disappointed. When I first bought it, it was $1200 now you can get it for as little as $600. I've had it for almost 2 years now and I'm still in love with it.
pay attention to dell deals on the deal sites (like the ones fate0000 mentioned) - dell makes fantastic monitors (using a lot of the same parts that apple does), and you can get incredible deals on them if you just wait for stackable coupons and %off deals and the like.
I am thinking about two Samsung 193p. Samsung released an updated model from this monitor and i hope the price for the older model will go down a little.
Those panels i have seen now have been all good. The ones from Dell are really really okay. This is my opinion. I say as long as the response time and the contrast good enough that your eye wonīt see the effects the monitor really is okay. And i think for us doing graphics the response time isnīt the only important thing. I am thinking about two 193p or one Dell. Or wait for Samsungs new thin CRTīs
