Monitors

Alrighty then, I need a new monitor. I need any opinions if that is possible. My 2 choices right now are:

KDS XFlat XF-9p 19-inch (flat screen, $210 at Sams Club)

or

Mag 986FS 19 inch ($149 after rebate from Best Buy)

Anyone have any opinions?

By the way, I'm only using a Riva TNT2 32meg w/tv out

I'd go for the mag...or save some money and get a viewsonic... DO NOT get a KDS...right now they are having serious manufacturing flaws. Entire batches of their monitors have been crapping out...you hear gas..smell chlorine/plastic...the picture gets blurred near the center permanently and the monitor is useless

KDS is aware of the problems, they barely question you when you mention your monitor failed, they will offer to send you a better replacement or sometimes even more then 1 monitor...but the problem is I know people who have had the replacements fail :(

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 https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
