SAMSUNG 941BW Black 19" 4 ms (GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 500:1 - Retail


SCEPTRE X20WG-Naga Black 20.1" 5ms (GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 Built in Speakers - Retail



Ok I need your opinions.. I want two 19 inch (min) monitors. I run Dual monitors now and want to keep running that set up.

These look good for what i want however in theory i also kinda wanted to be able to plug my 360 into what ever new monitor i was going to buy. and im pretty sure these wont support that.

Got any other opinions? Id rather not spend more than 500 for both monitors.

Well the Sceptre isn't bad (it's actually pretty good). We have one here at work, but it's the X9W Widescreen. It's exactly the same as the 20.1 and it works quite well. Now I have never used it in a gaming environment so I couldn't tell you how well it would respond it that situation.

the only Reason im going with the Sceptre Is that it is 209 after a 30 dollar mail in rebate and the Samsung is 199 after a mail in rebate.

10 bucks more seems to be worth it for 19inch to a 20.1 inch.

How ever i would also be losing 1ms of response time.. But i dont think that matter that much...

Any more input guys?

Id rather spend the extra 20 and buy from newegg.... Been doing business with them for a long time.

IM still toying with the idea of these.. I think its taking a bit of a risk on them as i have never heard of the brand...

My advice.
Buy from TigerDirect, and save some money.
And, get the Sceptre.
They are better theoretically than the samsung in size obviously, and the response time isn't much higher.
IMO the quality is the same in all the products...
Except dell, i think Dell monitors are the best.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
