So, of the 6 brands with like a $300 to $350 budget, which brand would you pick to get the best widescreen LCD that money can buy? I'm talkin' the best for that money: no compromises. 20" minimum, but it physically can't be wider than 24" as it has to at least fit on my desk.

No built-in speakers, either. Highest DCR (dynamic contrast ratio, of course). Lowest ms (like 6ms or faster).

I just want the best for that money ($300-$350, but $350 shipped).

As you can see, I made this a multiple choice just in case it's necessary.

same here i really cant believe how great of a monitor i purchased. i just watched WAR on it the other night and it looked GREAT!!! nice clear/crisp picture with great blacks and i wasnt even watching the movie head on, the monitors really do a 176degree viewing angle horizontally. i just wish the touch buttons were backlit.

Well, we can't know that for sure. I mean, I could just as easily say, "there are probably a lot of Samsungs floating around here because they're the most popular brand." But again, we can't know that for sure.
