Thread Starter 
I just wanted to create something of a list or an easily accessible guide to include a wide range retail of monitors and their respective maximum resolutions and accompanying refresh rates and a 10 point rating scale.

For now i'll be compiling this list with the following criteria, I strongly suggest your post meet all of the 5 Needed Criteria sake of easy reading and cataloging.(changes may come later, for now this is just a trial run.)



Required criteria:

1. Monitor brand and model #

2. LCD or CRT display.

3. The maximum displayable resolution with the maximum refresh rate at that resolution.

4. The monitors maximum sustainable refresh rate, include the resolution.
(In all monitors generally as the resolution increases the refresh rate will decrease, in most cases the lowest irresolutions will yield the highest refresh rate.)

5. Rating out of 10 for ease of use, quality of display, looks and performance and possibly a short explanation for your rating.
(this will probably be refined)



Optional criteria:
(more may be added)

1. Panel or display manufacturer. IE. Samsung panel, sony trinitron tube both are retailed by Dell.
(In many cases dell and other manufactures use panels or displays produced from a different company and sell it as one of their products.)

2. DVI or SVGA inputs or outputs and the total # of them located on the monitor.

3. Other connections. USB, headphone jack etc integrated speakers.

4. Which resolution+refresh rate do you normally use?


Trial Criteria

1. How much did your monitor cost you (include) current retail price if unavailable please state.
(retail does not mean ebay, craigslist or any other third party seller.)

2. Which resolution+refresh rate do you normally use?


Discussion is encouraged, flaming is not.
Suggestions would be appreciated as for the format for this list, i'm thinking of a few.
