  • Best 20+ inch Flat Monitor for Gaming

    I have a 21 inch 75 pound CRT and i truly want to switch to a flat panel monitor.
    I want one that will be good for gaming. Any Ideas?

    Thanks!

    I'm hoping that the Envision 22" widescreen I got will be good. But it came packed with 2 monitor-to-PC cables and no power cable, so I have to wait a week or so to find out. :)

      I'm not sure which is the best per se, but I've been very happy with the monitors I've purchased from Dell (20.1" and 24"). The one I'm using right now is the 2407WFP.

        I've been very happy with my Chimei 22inch 800:1 monitor.

        http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824252008

        It has pretty good reviews too on newegg. Its only 239.99 now, I paid 279.99 back in Feb/March for this.

          I have a 20 inch Hitachi tube and I don't want to give up its huge resolution (2048x1500), particularly in the vertical direction (critical for coding, so I can see lots of code at once). It looks like I'll need a 24" flat screen to get comparable vertical resolution.

            Dell ultrasharps are definatly worth it, but I've used an envision 17 CRT for a years and it's never had a problem. I plan on getting a 19 inch LCD from envision this winter.

              I had a LG L204WTX. It was preaty nice although the viewing angles from above and below kind of sucked.

              But now I have a 26 inch monitor and use my LG as a second monitor.

                I use a samsung 226cw, it a 22" flatscreen. I love it. Great quality, good color, it really made a difference for me.

                    Yeah, but tell us about your flat screen! :p

                        Re: Best 20+ inch Flat Monitor for Gaming

                        I just ordered a 22" Acer 2216 from NewEgg this weekend for $200 bucks. It got pretty good reviews on CNET and NewEgg. I'll let you know how it is after I get it tomorrow.

                        I'd give you the link on NewEgg, but the site is down right now for some reason.

                        Edit - Here it is: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824009094

                        Looks like they bumped the price up to $230, but it's still an awesome deal.

                            Gotta love cheap flat-panel monitor technology in general these days.

                              I have an Acer that looks like that but it has a glossy screen. I think mine was around the same price too. The model number is X222W.
