IBM T540

The reason? Supply and demand. During the past year, new LCD fabrication plants have come online, especially in China, Korea, and Taiwan. At the same time, sagging sales in the desktop PC market have spilled over to affect notebook sales, causing...

NEC MultiSync 1810X

After having a string of successes with a myriad of NEC CRT displays I naturally assumed that I would have a similar experience when I chose the NEC MultiSync LCD1810X. Alas, I most certainly did not.

Compaq MV 940

I found this monitor to be top of the line. It's very user friendly. The speakers (JBL) that came will it are outstanding.

Philips 140S

LCD monitor prices are dropping, but are still two or three times the cost of equivalent CRTs. The Philips 140S offers a 14.1-inch display -- the same size you'll find on today's high-end notebooks -- and has an estimated street price of AU$1,399.

Samsung SyncMaster 150 T

If you've ever tried to watch a DVD on a laptop, you probably noticed the latency problem. CRTs give you a crisp signal and an accurate, attractive image, even with video or scrolling text. But LCDs still can't handle video well, which is why no...

Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 2020U

Almost '1000 is a lot of money for a monitor of any size, and while the 2020u delivers in the image department, you're paying quite a premium for that extra inch of screen.

Philips 150X

The speakers in the base and the curvy silver-and-black case would nicely complement a home system, but the 150X loses its appeal when you consider the high price and middling image quality.

ViewSonic ViewPanel VP150m

The VP150m would make a good choice for small or home offices that could share a digital connection; if your graphics card is analog only, choose a better performer.

NEC AccuSync 50

I bought this monitor to replace my aging Acer 15" monitor. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a new monitor because I plan to buy a new system in a few months. The NEC is much nicer than my old monitor, with sharp detail and vivid colors. The...

KDS Visual Sensations 190

I have had this monitor for a while, and I love it. Clear visuals and great color. I would recommend it to my friends and family, and have. I know 3 people that have bought one on my recommendation, and they all love it too.

Acer Graphics G772

The G772's competitive price is one of the lowest-priced monitor around.The monitor has points for its sharp text on both word processing documents and spreadsheets. Although, it didn't fare as well with graphics. Colors on Web pages looked bland. Acer...

The PV520 provides a superior display but not a lot of tech-support handholding. Other brands give you more for your money.

Hitachi CML181SXW

Unlike previous Hitachi displays we have reviewed, this test unit exhibited a minor defect. Under low light conditions the screen had a bright area off to one side - apparently a common occurrence do to slightly misaligned components in the LCD panel....

Elo Touchsystems 2201L

The surface of this monitor looks nice, and it does a good job of identifying your touch; however, you can only touch the screen in two places at once, which is much less than some of the other monitors we reviewed.

NEC MultiSync LCD 15 Series TV (32", 42", 46")

Given it's 'entry-level' price point, the LCD4215 actually has quite a lot to offer its target market. The provision of the software editor for free is a particularly friendly touch for small businesses that don't mind a little DIY, and the display's...

Acer XB321HK (UM.JX1AA.001)

When it's working properly, it's beautiful. Too many problems with this monitor for it's high price point though. And RMA"s are a pain in the rear. Nothing like reboxing items like this and hauling them to the shipper. I will update this again when I...

Initially, I was concerned that being 1920x1080 at 27" would result in poor pixel density and blurry text, but I was pleasantly surprised with the sharpness of this monitor. The color and picture quality easily blows away my previous 23" TN panel...

Found these monitors very easy to set up with my Mac - still haven't even loaded the cd drivers and optional features but they present an excellent view and have worked flawlessly for the past month. Would recommend them to anyone.
