Good flat screen monitor

  kiddgame2000 18:18 16 Feb 2007

Im looking for a good flat screen monitor around the 20-21 inch region.
Would anyone have any suggestions?
It will mainly be used for gaming and watching dvd's.

Strongly advise that you actually see them operating before buying - even if that means a trip to the high street and then ordering online.Apart from cost, reliability, appearance, you will find that there are some you just can't live with how3ver "good" they are.
eg. can you raise /lower monitor height? are speakers built in? how fiddly (or otherwise ) is it to adjust screen settings? does the screen pivot? I mention these because they were all factors in our choice of monitor recently.

I agree with palinka I've seen some TFTs that got good reviews but didn't find the picture all that pleasing, its a personal preference thing as far as I am concerned.
