    I've never bought a new monitor for myself but 2nd hand Compaq's are always good value I've found. ;)

    If you are in the US, and money is an issue, you can't beat these deals.

    http://search.ebay.com/search/search...ty=MetaEndSort

    ebay isn't for the incompetent. You have to understand how it works, and since many or the monitors are used, you should find a model that isn't very old, (hasn't been manufactured long) and you will have the best shot at a nearly new monitor (as some of them are getting up to 6 and 7 years old)

    Shipping is non-negotiable.

    DO THIS above all else: Promise yourself you will not buy one for at least a week. If you find a good deal now, don't let impulse get to you, because if one appears in a week, it will appear again very soon.

    I've bought a bunch of Samsung 955DF 's at work - they're very nice...19", flat and about $370cdn ($235US)

    They don't compare to a top-of-the-line sony though

    still...I'd rather have a good 19" than a great 17"

    Yea, the DF line is the low end of what samsung makes. DF stands for dyna-flat, which is just a scam alot of monitor makers do, which means the glass is thicker near the edges.

    The samsung line models rank in quality like this (left to right, lowest to highest quality)
    DF, SL, P, IFT

    My Samsung dealer grades them like this (for 19" 's)

    B, P, DF, IFT, NF
    with the Samtron models below all of these (obviously)
    ....don't know what an SL is - maybe it's not available in Canada.

    the information given to me was that the DF and the IFT use the same tube anyway - flat w/shadow mask ( as do B and P curved screens w/shadow mask)...it's the NF (Natural Flat: flat aperture grill) that's the higher end model

    why has no1 mentioned philips, or viewsonic, i personally love the quality and clarity of the picture on a viewsonic monitor, but i cant fault a philips monitor either, to that note, philips tend to have more features, and a slightly lower price tag, i bought my 17" viewsonic pf775 for A$500 and havent looked back. from what i have seen of both philips and viewsonic, i say go either way you wont be ripped of or disappointed!

    well my trinitron 19" flat screen monitor is awsome its such a good peice of hardware im so glad i spent the extra cash for it, i have space so i did not want a flat panel monitor since they lose tons of picture quality and i dont need that, my monitor reminds me of a digital TV by sony trinitron, they have sony trinitron TV's and my monitor is just like that but its a computer monitor with features of course for a computer monitor :D

    it came with my DELL so well it says trinitron at top left (i believe sony makes these)
