I'm in the market for a new LCD monitor. I currently have a 20" CRT, so I wanted to stay in the 20" range (+/- 1" or so). I've read somestuff about how some LCD's (primarily older or more cost effective models) have a too high access time ( I was told to shoot for about 16). Which Brand do you guys reccomend/have had good experience with? Thamks for your help in advance!

I always recommend Samsung and Sony, stay with the brands that are tried and true.

Well a 19" tft will give you the same screen size as your 20" crt but it's costly to get a panel that has a fast response time (you want AT LEAST 16ms with a large pannel, good native resolution and contrast/brightness. When I've looked in the past It would cost at least £700 for a halve descent TFT.

Stick with your CRT for a year. You can now get 17" panels with 8ms responce for under £200. When they get around to the bigger panels that will be the time to get one. Also look out for the Sony deep black panels they do look good.

Tell me and I may forget,
Show me and I may remember,
Involve me and I will understand.

I still have 2 x 27" Sony monitors. You get neck ache when using screens that big. I stopped using them a while back now. When I feel nostalgic I converse with your good self. The pain in the neck reminds me. ha ha Only joking mate.
