19"/20" TFTs - please help!

  hander 18:23 26 Aug 2004


I'm in the market for a TFT to sit alongside a CRT. Started looknig at 17", then at 19" and now - I'm thinking 1600*1200 - I'm looking at 20".

What's important to me:
*good text view - must swivel to portrait
*good movies
*sound would be good - but not essential if the screen is right.
*s-vid input would be a plus
*PRICE - Part of the reason I won't buy a Dell immediately is because of US/UK discrepancy. It hurts too much. Ideally I wouldn't like to pay much more than £650. If possible less.

If you have positive 19" experience, then do mention anything. Or if you have any other forum recommendations, please post for me.

With many thanks,

Thanks in advance.

However on 2nd September, Aldi have some Medion 19" TFT's coming in for £299.99 which I thought was a pretty good price.

an AOC LM9 27U, and can sum it up in two words - absolutely superb. And that's from a dyed-in-the-wool 21" CRT fan.

I started using my AOC a few months back as a result of seeing one in a clients office in America. I fell for it on first sight, and although I use the 21" CRTs for graphics and general image work the AOC has now taken over as my main working monitor - I wouldn't part with it, the image quality is stunning.

Thanks. Can't find much on the AOC and don't think it has DVI, does it?

Anyone good experience with Dell 2001FP?

i think the Dell is made by someone else.

Sorry about that. The model number isn't marked on the front of the monitor, and I read from a search return. A quick look at my invoice tells me I have an LM 929 and here it is:
