New Monitor - Upgrading from 20.1"

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Lady(ies?) and gentlemen,

I am growing tired of the size of my monitor. Since I have also started watching baseball games on it live, I would like to get a bigger one. However, knowing what I do about monitors, I will only get a bigger monitor if it offers better resolution than the 1680x1050 that I currently am using.

So, that essentially means 24" or above starting with the 1920x1200 resolution (widescreen only, obviously). Right now my number one choice is this guy:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824001263

I have scoured the ends of the Earth in search of a monitor with equal or better specifications but have yet to find one, so I am turning to you all to help me find one that I may have missed. Please bear in mind the following factors before you suggest a monitor (these specifications are based upon what the Samsung monitor linked to above offers):
  • Contrast ratio, static and dynamic: should be no less than 1000:1 and 10,000:1, respectively
  • Pixel pitch: should be no greater than 0.278mm (if you can't find the information about the monitor's pixel pitch that is alright; typically it can be estimated from the size of the monitor and its resolution)
  • Brightness: should be at least 300 cd/m^2
  • Response time: should be 15ms or less
  • Manufacturer warrant: 1 year on everything at least

Money is only a secondary concern for the moment. Oh, and LCD only please. No plasma or CRTs. My eyes thank you.

I would recommend the Dell 2408WFP the dynamic Contrast ratio is not 10,000 but the rest of the specifications are better as it is a S-PVA not a NT screen.
6 Millisecond Response Time(I would say its ghosting is onaly a little worse than a CRT... not visible)
178º (horizontal)/178º (vertical)
Color Gamut 102%
Pixel Pitch 0.27 mm
Contrast ratio 1300:1 and 3000:1 dynamic
400 cd/m^2

To be noted the dell does suffer from input delay about 55ms

Is that the best Dell has to offer in this category? Also, do you mean TN (twisted nematic) rather than NT?

from what I could find it does have the best picture the samsung is very close to the dell but it is not calibrated as well out of the box. The dell should also be calibrated just not as much. for me it only took about an hour to calibrate it just by looking at it but It is your own choice when you buy a screen. yea I mean TN, and Also I recommend it because I own it of course.

Alright. Any other suggestions? I'll have to check out the Dell when I get home.

I would say to look here http://lcd24-7.info/Monitors.aspx but the web site is down so if anyone else would post that would be helpful.
other than that I don't remember the other monitors I looked at. You might try looking at Westinghouse see if there monitors are good.

The 2693 has pitiful specifications compared to the 2493, or I would probably consider it.
