The LCDs formerly known as IBM?


The 20-inch Lenovo ThinkVision L201P offers better-than-average performance and excellent ergonomic flexibility, but it's more expensive than similarly equipped business displays.

High degree of adjustability; evenly lit screen; streak-free performance when displaying moving images; dedicated button for swapping between digital and analog signals.

You can see individual dots, no fuzziness at all. I have this monitor at work and bought one for home although it is about $150 more than the others in this range. Well worth it. Excellent. Love the fine quality of the image.
