Windows 7: New Monitor

30 Aug 2010   #1

Windows 7 x64 Professional
New Monitor


I need some help here, I have no idea where to start to look, I don't really want to go out and throw my money around on something that is truly not worth what I am spending,

I am looking for a LCD monitor at least 21" or more, I don't have a specific brand but I am looking for something I am going to get a bang from my buck.

My budget I want to keep it under $200 CND, I know it might be hard to work with but I have little to spend.

Best advice I can give: $100 - $200, 21 in, LCD Monitors - CNET Reviews

in those reviews, the HP looks the best. just make sure it is 1080p

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

I agree with Thorsen. Also have a look at this. I think it's in your price range. Great screen and the stand is amazing.

Swifty my best advice is to buy a "brand name" and not the cheap ones that are about.
