New Monitor

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Hello, I need some help here, I have no idea where to start to look, I don't really want to go out and throw my money around on something that is truly not worth what I am spending, I am looking for a LCD monitor at least 21" or more, I don't have a specific brand but I am looking for something I am going to get a bang from my buck. My budget I want to keep it under $200 CND, I know it might be hard to work with but I have little to spend. Thanks.

    @Bert You do know that you can get a 23" Dell monitor for 160 around there, as far as the flyer I get every week says, but I am trying to get more options

    23 inch for 160 bucks probably means bad colors and whatnot.

    Something cheap and good? The Acer x203h is a great monitor. My dad gave it to me on my birthday to years ago, best LCD monitor I used so far and believe me, I used a lot. The colors are perfect and sharp, the resolution is 1600x900. After 2 years, I have no deadpixels yet nor any problems. The best thing about it is that it eats glare. Most monitors I had produced so much glare from small shit like a window being open or a lamp behind me, but this one shows no glare even if you shine a flashlight into it, that's why I love it so much. If you open a black screen, you won't even be able to see your reflection in it.

    I bought I new monitor 2 weeks ago for 150 euros which is 200 CAD $. It is ASUSVW225D 22.5" 16:10 and it was the best one in the store.Friend of mine told me to buy full HD monitor because they are not expensive and picture should look the best on them.I saw other monitors and this one and the picture on this one was the best, the others were too bright or too dark. The guy who worked there told me that the real full HD 1080p can be only seen on 40". So google it and see it on youtube its really good for its price!

    I don't know much about screen specs but I find Samsung to be a good brand. Especially when it comes to monitors. Their products aren't over priced like Sony. If you can find a 23 inch screen by them that's within your price range, don't hesitate to buy it. You don't need anything bigger than 23 inches. It's a perfect size for a monitor. Here's one on sale for 209 Just a tad bit more then your limit though.
