I'm in a market for a new Monitor. I am considering 3 LCD makes, and I am
willing to spend approx $500. The brands I am interested are
1. Sony, 2. NEC, 3. Viewsonic. Should I consider other brands, and would
like to hear your experience, pro and contra, with these makes.

I read a good review recently of a Samsung LCD, but I'm sorry I don't remember
the model no. I have a 19" CRT of theirs which is the best I have owned. FWIW.

I've had only positive experiences with these brands of traditional monitors, no
experience yet with their LCD units. Their monitors are well made and they last
a long time when given normal care and feeding... Ben Myers

Riga,

After much research, I purchased a 17" Samsung 173P flat panel monitor last
winter. The image quality is superb, plus it looks simply fabulous. Check
out the reviews at:

http://reviews.cnet.com/Samsung_SyncMaster_173P/4505-3174_7-30630207.html

I was looking for a 19" monitor, but the reviews swayed me. I'm so happy I
bought this monitor. It's the best one I've ever owned.

For the best price (I believe it's $399.00), just click on this link for
amazon.com:

Samsung monitor quality has improved dramatically over the years, from the
original not-too-good monitors maybe 10 years ago... Ben Myers

Another vote for Samsung. Got a Samsung Synchmaster 191T-Plus. Love it.

Might want to consider this one. A $200 rebate! Hurry though, one day
only.

Whichever you choose, look for a minimum of a 3-year warranty that
covers the backlight. There are some cheaper models - even from big
names like NEC-Mitsubishi - that have only a 1-year warranty.

Replacing the backlight on an LCD costs about $150, so get the 3-year
coverage.

Suggest going to www.copernic.com and downloading their "free" search
engine..., the thing once loaded goes out on hundreds of other search
engines within seconds and finds info on anything!!
Just enter Sony LCD..., or anything else and within a short time you'll more
"reviews" than you can read in one evening...!! As I mentioned.., IT FREE!

AMEN! Talk about superfluous software! And as you pointed out, probably
inviting all kinds of nasty or unnecessary visitors to your pc.

Nope... not an expert; and didn't mean to imply there was anything wrong with
your advice. :) I just consider it *unnecessary* to download software to do
something many sites on the web do for you, with a click and the entry of what
you are looking for. That's much simpler to me.

Google returns 100 times more than you can look at. Why the heck would I
want hundreds times more? Are you making money of this useless stuff? No
matter what you say I wouldn't download it. Redundant and not worth the
risk. You can't be too careful these days. I'd rather be an un-infected
"para-nerd" than an idiot that loads everything in sight on a system only to
hose it.
