What is the best computer monitor out there right now?


Recommended Posts

It's that time.... I need to upgrade the system at home a bit. Does anyone have a GREAT monitor they just bought or have you recently done some research you can share with me? Also, if you have any links to some good deals, please share!

My old setup before I gave it to someone in the family was 2 DELL Ultrasharp 24 inch monitors however I'm hearing Samsung has some pretty nice gear out there now.

Thanks!

Recently I purchased a HUGE Dell 27Inch Monitor at work and wow... there is no going back to a 24inch after this baby was installed. Looking on the back of the Monitor it's a DELL 2709WB. I have no idea what my boss paid for this thing ($800???) however after using it for a year, all I can say is WOW. If I were you, I would grab 2 of these and you would be done!

FYI - That 27inch DELL is about 3 years old? Might want to see if there's a new one now.

How to choose an awesome monitor (simple guide by DW96) :D

  1. Look for the right resolution (preferably 1920x1080, 1920x1200 or 1680x1050)
  2. Look for the right response time (for office work, 5ms is fine, but movies and gaming NEED 2ms for sure)
  3. Get an LED monitor (if you can) - saves energy, produces a much more natural white color and is way better for the environment
  4. Pick a good output method - get a monitor with multiple inputs to maximize your productivity when connecting to different machines. For a PC you'd want no more than DVI, but for a PS3, for example, you need to make sure you have HDMI (and preferably built-in speakers)
  5. Make sure your wallet still feels heavy after the purchase - or in other words - the most expensive isn't always the best - look at reviews and tests before you make a final decision.
  6. ENJOY YOUR NEW MONITOR

I always read the reviews on both Amazon and Newegg for computer hardware before buying it.

      How much money will I save by choosing a computer with Linux Pre-installed vs one with Windows 7? Is it worth it?

      Yo all, here's the deal - I've got a ATi Radeon HD 4850, quite good, but it's kind of giving me a headache when it comes to running newer games - 15-20 frames on GTA IV with high settings doesn't sound good to me...
      So the deal is - do I crossfire my current 4850 with another one or do I just buy a new GPU, like a 6950 or a 6970? It's a tough decision to make - just to note - it's not really about the money here, it's just that I'm not 100% sure if the 6000 series is right for me.
      P.S.: Yes, I absolutely MUST get 2GB of GPU memory if I will be going for a new one.(this question is also in the forum: http://www.groovypost.com/forum/hardware-software/crossfire-vs-new-card-t97008.html)

      I've always been an Intel Bigot but now days, does it really matter? It seems like most of the software out there works just fine on both and when you look at the prices. I see several hundred ($$$) reasons to go AMD.
      Thoughts? What does the Crowd Wisdom say about this one?

      recharge problem is the big problem to users as me, recently, I want to replace a new keyboard for old ones, although it's not a newest model, but it fit my choice, LG MK520. for the host page, the page said it's a rechargeable keyboard, and there are sentence in the line said like, it can be changer by putting the keyboard into charger? that why I post and look for someone response. I didn't want to register the LG a/c for just a simple Q, I guess it may said "put......" means the battery but not the keyboard. but the link did said " keyboard into charger"
      is it recharging by putting keyboard into charger?

      Is it possible to connect two computers to one external USB hard drive? If so, how? And, would there be a need for a special adapter?
