hello there, need your opinion on a 20" widescreen lcd monitor to buy. is there any recommendation for general and some game usage?

my target is to get benq 20"W or 24"W, but is it worth the money? i'm still using my 17" samsung syncmaster 793mb crt monitor.

thanks in advance! :)

You'd better look at this review
http://www.tomshardware.com/2006/06/27/xxl_displays
It's seems benq 202w is not a good choic

Acctually i am also choosing a 20" or 20.1" W lcd now,
and i have done a lot of research on it and are about to choose one from the below list.

ViewSonic VX2025WM $319.99

Samsung 205BW $289.99

Sceptre X20G-NAGA III $249.99AR

the Sceptre X20G have the lowest price and good contrast ratio which is 800:1 (VX2025WM have 800:1 and 205BW have 700:1) plus the smallest pixel pitch 0.255nm
all the three have a 8ms response time

I am considering to buy the X20G, Just wonder if this lcd is reliable.... So It would be great if anyone can give some comments and help me decide.

btw: the use of the monitor is (60% programming&doc viewving + 40% gaming)

thanks for the info dll_christ. i'll try to read those reviews..

i've checked the price in here, surabaya, indonesia. the benq still around US $455, and viewsonic $445. still too damn expensive.

how long this lcd monitor will last in hours?
