    I'm a bit curious about others opinion about monitors >< Main question is : " Does matters for you ? "
    Performance OR Size

    a combination of both. i like to have a nice big screen, but he has to give somewhat good performance.

    good color
    brightness
    good viewing angles

    and cosmetic stuff like:
    side to side rotation
    up/down pivot
    etc.

    In this order for me :
    1) . Sony
    2) . ADi
    3) . CTX
    4) . HP
     
  5. CTX are very good for the money.

    i have the A95f... i can never go back to a conventional curved crt. they looked too warped after using a flat crt.

    at the same time, i don't see myself getting a flat panel until they have perfect response time (<5ms, at least), higher resolutions, and come down in price. maybe about 3-4 years.

    i wouldn't go lower than 19", myself. but i'd only go 21" if i had room to scoot it back about 6 inches.

    i hate sony's. viewsonic is decent. i've heard good things about samsung.

    to a sony or veiwsonic 19" in the near future. i'd like to have both
    performance and size.

    I'm in 1280x1024 res, 32bit color, 72MHz refresh rate and games look AWESOME along with my 3D card. any higher/lower of a resolution and my Icons are too hard to read or there too large for my desktop (lotsa icons).
