Windows 7: What is the best monitor to invest in?

What is the best monitor to invest in?

I only have a few thousand dollars, and was wondering what would be the "bang for your buck" monitor.
I am not looking to overspend but my current monitor is not that great

Dell UltraSharp U2413 or U2713H are excellent monitors. You get what you pay for with them.

Sure looks like it but I can't be spending $500 - $1000 on a monitor. Any other not so expensive options?

Not sure if trends are the same in Japan, but if 1920x1080 is a high enough resolution for your needs, then there are a lot of High Quality HD TVs available, at very competitive prices and all but the cheapest include various connection options for PCs.

They can also serve a dual use as an additional TV for broadcast programming Etc. so are easier to justify the outlay

Well you said you don't want to overspend, I just wanted to mention I just bought a Samsung S22D300NY a few weeks ago and it's excellent.
It has beautiful colors and it's crystal clear. It's also not that expensive.

As others have said, HPs are also great

Hi
There are many choices like DELL, Samsung. I prefer
Samsung C300 Series S22C300H 21.5-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor. It's also available on amazon. It's about 125 USD.

ViewSonic monitors seeem to be the best bang for buck monitors. They are not the best, but they should be good enough if not doing any professional work where color accuracy is a priority. I have one and even though it is cheap, it is pretty good. I reccomend the VX entertainment line of monitors.

It would be helpful to know what you use (or plan to use) it for and your preferred price range. My wife and I have side by side computers with our 24 inch monitors about 18" (about 45cm) apart. For most applications they are equally good. Mine is a NEC that cost over $1,000; hers is an ASUS that cost about $240. If I didn't do a lot of Photoshop editing and were not occasionally very particular about color gamut (and accuracy), I would be very happy with hers. For 90% of what we both do, they are essentially equal. But that other 10% is very important to me. Hers is actually a little better for gaming because it is much faster than mine. We also have another NEC and a Samsung that gave us many years of great service and still work fine. We just both wanted something bigger.

If you are going to use a TV as a PC monitor understand that you are likely to see text that is not quite as sharp as on a PC monitor.

If you work with text a lot, it could end up being very annoying, like I've learned with the TV I just bought and hooked up to my PC.
