New monitor

OK the second amp on the 17" Apple studio display died last night Yep these were not durable monitors So I am looking for a new one. I want 16:9 aspect ratio and right now have a MAG hooked up that looks like compared to the old Apple display when only one amp was working.

So any recommendations?

I looked at the Sony's nice but with thier thieving root kitting ways I don't want to encourage them with $$$

The Apple 20" is gorgeous but a bit more than I was hoping to spend.

Looks like the Viewsonics are decent and inexpensive but I think they are not 16:9

Personally, I like Viewsonics for their value.

Re: New monitor

You could check out Samsung as well. I used to have both a Samsung SyncMaster 240T and a Viewsonic VP230mb, and the Samsung was a 16:10. It's a couple years old, so there will be a newer version, but it was a great monitor - I just grew to like the Viewsonic more so I sold the Samsung.
I still use the VP230mb, but it's not a widescreen type monitor, so it won't fit the bill for you. They both had pros and cons, but going with either Samsung or Viewsonic won't dissappoint you. Never had a single issue with either one.

Re: New monitor

I'm kicking around the idea of the new gateway....not much on review on it yet. Think it's one of the first, if not the first, with HDCP which will be required for HD with Vista.

Re: New monitor

That Gateway for $600 looks like a pretty good deal.

This site was recommended on another thread for deals on monitors.

Re: New monitor

Viewsonic
Samsung
Neovo

Dell actually has decent monitors as well and usually can be had fairly inexpensive.

Re: New monitor

I just bought the Dell 24" panel: http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/p...tegory_id=4009

It's a little cheaper in Canada. But if you're willing to wait and be deligent, you can get it SUPER cheap... i.e.: http://www.dealuniversity.com/article12763.html

Be fast or be last.
