Ok guys ... I'm looking for suggestions on a new monitor, mine died last night :mad:

It was only 2 years old, ViewSonica VA720. Unfortunately, the warantee was only good for 1 year :mad: I'm using my daughters old CRT monitor atm and it sucks lol.

I'll be shopping for one today, what would you suggest?

Why don't you phone the company you bought it off, tell them you forgot about the warranty and demand a repair as their goods should last more than the time you purchased it to the time it died.

I did have my T.V. go blind after 3 days past the year the gurantee was offered and they repaired it. You could claim it on the house and contents insurance if you have that also.

Why would anyone claim such nonsense on their home owners insurance? A claim against your insurance makes for higher premiums.

I did call ViewSonic last night, all I got was a phone # in CA for repair. I live in TX and refuse to pay for shipping.

also bear in mind you need a low pixal pitch 29ms or lower, and the lower the response time the better 9ms and below.

I would suggest a 20" Dell (either the 2100FP or 2005FPW) Great monitors at a great price for the size, you will pay slightly over $500 though both could arguably be the best cost per size...

My 2 cents though!

Dell always has specials NetRyder always seems to find them fast I would drop him a PM!

The 2001FP and 2005FPW are some of the best displays in their class, no doubt, and they're very reasonably priced for their size and specs, but they're not going to sell for anything less than $500 at present, unfortunately.

Dell does have 17" TFTs that fall within the $300-$350 range, and they're decent displays, but you probably might be able to get better panels than the E173FP or 1704FPV elsewhere. In any case, if you want to take a look, here they are:
E173FP - Analog VGA only
1704FPV - VGA/DVI

i think Samsung has an 80" plasma monitor ..oh wait that wont quite fit the 300 budget.

I agree with mlakrid ..the 2 bigger dell monitors and apparently even the 24 inch widescreen are all goodies.

A couple hundred dollars more and you would have a far superior product. 500ish with shipping mixed with the correct discount codes.

Seems like a couple of 19" displays just fell into your price range. ;)

E193FP (Analog VGA only):
- 1280 x 1024
- Dot Pitch: 0.294 mm
- Image Brightness: 250 cd/m2 (typical)
- Image Contrast Ratio: 500:1 (typical)
- Response Time: 16ms
- Viewing angle: +/- 70 degrees
http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/ProductDetail.aspx?TabPage=techspecs&sku=320-4087&c=us&l=en&cs=19
$399 - 25% [Code: 3$THVVV4XV7KD4 Expires 04/03] = $299

1905FP (VGA+DVI):
- 1280 x 1024
- Dot Pitch: 0.294 mm
- Image Brightness: 250 cd/m2 (typical)
- Image Contrast Ratio: 800:1 (typical)
- Response Time: 20ms
- Viewing angle: +/- 85 degrees

$499 - 30% [Code: D7L9QWS?X48W30 Expires 04/03] = $349
