Looking for a DVI/VGA small monitor.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I'm looking for a cheap DVI and VGA capable monitor, I don't really care if it's HD or not, don't care about the aspect ratio. I really am just looking for a light weight more or less portable monitor that will unplugged and moved around a good bit. 12-15" preferred, I think I'll end up with a 15" as it was of course one of the more popular sized LCD monitors, anything smaller wasn't intended to be used as a computer monitor, at least not that I've found but I'm always open to new ideas. If you'd like any more info, just ask! Thanks in advance to anyone that is willing to help me end this search! thumb.gif

These might be a little too big for your size requirements, but they popped up in an email from Newegg I got this morning.

They're debranded and refurbished, but they're cheap and have VGA and DVI inputs. thumb.gif

20" LCD 1600x1200 - $90

20" LCD 1600x900 - $80 ($70 after MIR)

Most 15" monitors you find will probably be older non-widescreen monitors like 5:4 or 4:3, 1280 x 1024 or 1024 x 768 respectively. Honestly, I would think of what's left (are any even left) is probably all going to be more or less the same; lower end TN panels, so I'd just pick one, but then I looked, and Newegg only has two 15" LCDs; both are a mere 1024 x 768, and one is $130, and the other is over $230! You might just have to locally source a used 15" of any sorts.

You may get lucky buying a new 15 inch LCD 16:9 monitor if you look in the right places: they are still being made for places that only need a small monitor to configure a computer, like a server, or you can buy a 15 inch TV, which will give you the added TV tuner. I don't know how many of them have both DVI and VGA though. They should all have VGA, and perhaps HDMI (in the case of the TV). If they have HDMI you can always buy an HDMI to DVI adapter.

Gave up and bought a 22" monitor. Same model as my current to use in a dual monitor setup when I don't need the second one. What better than a dual monitor or more setup, win win. Thanks everyone! biggrin.gif
