In Market For Slim Screen...Suggestions?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Sold the Mac and am building another PC. Currently have a bulky beast of an Acer that I received through some various trades, but she has to go. Desk space is at a premium, and I can't wall mount a screen.

What's the slimmest 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 screen I can find? I wanted 1920x1200 initially, but I believe nothing exists in the minimalist category.

1920x1080 seems to have plenty of options though...

  • Nothing larger than 24"...prefer higher pixel pitch if anything
  • Slim through and through....an enormous base with an 8 mm thick panel housing doesn't help me
  • Price point below $400

Currently the HP x2301 looks great aesthetically, but am uncertain of performance..


Suggestions?

Are you looking for a TV to use as a monitor or an actual computer monitor? If it is monitors I would go with these:

- LG 23" 1080P IPS from Best Buy
- Asus 23" 1080P LED from Buy.com

The LG has better viewing angles inherent from the IPS panel, but as a result a slower response time. The Asus one is a better gaming monitor but with crappier side viewing if you watch from different angles. Both are well within your price range.

S23A950D or S23A750D are both very slim monitors. My 27" 950D is just about the same thickness as my Galaxy Nexus. Of course the base isn't exactly small but the 750 base is a lot smaller....

Bases need to be minimal as well, or at least have the option for VESA mounting (which I do not think exists with LED screens?).

Can you give us the dimensions or footprint of the base size you are looking for?
