Looking for a new LCD monitor
    #408945 - 04/29/10 07:14 PM (6 years, 7 months ago)

I am going to start building my own computer here in a couple months, my laptop battery has been dead for a couple of months and its getting pretty annoying

Are there any brands you guys would recommend? Does it really matter?

I have checked out newegg and they seem to have some pretty decent prices on some generic brands

Damn that's a pretty sweet deal. I am thinking of pulling the trigger and ordering it

I really didnt want to spend quite that much, but that is a nice size monitor and I really dig Samsung products

I cant buy it today. I got to pay rent tomorrow and I dont want to leave myself too strapped for cash. Want to go stock up on groceries and take care of all my other bills for the month

I will have to keep that site in mind though. That was an awesome deal

It'll work. Its great for multimedia, especially if you have surround sound speakers.
Not unless you have a great video card it'll look kind of crappy.

It'd be pretty dope to be able to hook up my cable box to it

And a TV as a main monitor isnt always the best idea, I have a 37" 1080p LCD thats pretty cool to use as a monitor but too big to be practical for 24/7 use unless I want to move my keyboard and mouse back an extra 5 feet
