    I'm currently in the market for a new 19" monitor.....

    Anyone have any recommendations on the best 19" monitor on the market for about $300US or less? (NO MORE than $320)

    Should i go with a flat tube screen, or would a regular CRT monitor be the way to go on my ~$300 budget?

    It would also be nice if you provided a link to a reliable store that has the monitor you recommend listed for sale...

    :thumb: Thanks for all the help :thumb:

    I've had very good luck with Hitachi brand monitors. Here's one with a .20 pitch and priced at just under $290 at Multiwave Direct. http://www.hitachidisplays.com/products/19_721F.htm

    Oh... and here's Multiwave's address: www.mwave.com

    I dont think I'm into the old school Shadow Mask technology that that Hitachi monitor uses....

    I was also hoping to go with a Sony or NEC/Mitsubishi monitor as I've heard that those are the best in terms of image quality and reliability

    Thanks for the recommendation Darth :D

    Anyone else?

    I have a Hansol 900P; which has a maximum resolution of 1600x1200@75Hz. Samsung tube, still an excellent monitor for the price. I paid A$500 for mine, they are now as low as A$470 (US$235) if you look around.

    Also, may I please point out that Hitachi (and many other vendors) state their HORIZONTAL dot pitch, not diagonal as the other monitors are rated in. So if you see a Hitachi monitor with a 0.20mm dot pitch, it is really equivalent to 0.26mm in normal measurements. However the Sony FD Trinitron monitors are awesome, my friend has the 17" model and it completely destroys my 19" in terms of visual clarity and definition. Worth a look if you have the money :)

    I've looked at some Samsung monitors, like the 950DF (still want that mofo!) and it seems to retail around $300 USD. Of course, them Sony's are sweet and worth it if you have the cash to drop down.
