    Hey guys, It's time to upgrade monitors. Just would like your opinion on which LCD monitor performs best.
    I'm looking for a 17" one, sleek design, clear image and high contrast.
    Price range is AU$700-800
    :smokin:


    EDIT: How dose a Hercules Prophetview 920 17" LCD Monitor rank?

    We had a Hercules 17" LCD in not long ago and I was really impressed with it and it falls into your price range.

    Give it a look.

    Ohhh, if you still have it would you mind sending it over? I'll pay for the postage. :D

    Yeah, Samsung have a good range.
    19" LCD is WAY out of my budget. That's like $1300 Australian dollars.

    Just went through Tweaktowns review archive and I was just wondering if there was a review on the Hercules 17" LCD. :confused:

    EDIT: One more question, I've been reading in the forum about "Dead LCD Pixels", and I was concerned because it seemed like such a big issue when thinking about buying LCD. How long would the Hercules 17" LCD last before this would happen?

    Probably not as long as a Samsung.

    Doesn't Hercules use the Samsung LCD screen?
    I think I read this somewhere before. Correct me if I'm wrong.
