Replacement Viewsonic monitor- which one?

  Katstar 17:50 15 Sep 2006

I bought a Viewsonic VX910 19" Monitor about 18 months ago, and have been really pleased with it. Unfortunately, it got a bit damaged recently, and I am getting a new one on insurance. The VX910 isn't around any more, and I'm not quite sure which one to go for instead.

I have £250 to spend, and would have a preference for a Viewsonic, given how good it's been, but I know nothing about the newer models. I mainly use it for work - word processing and internet, though I do watch films on it too (that, if anything, could be improved- I've always found the picture a little grainy). Could anyone give me any advice as to which one to go for? And does anyone know if Viewsonic still have the same policy on dead pixels (ie. they will exchange it even if there is only one)? Any help would be appreciated.

I would go for the 22" IIyama E2200WS bought one last week and it is fantastic. I know it's £50 over your budget but if you can stretch to it, i would. click here

Thank you all - all of the monitors you mention look excellent! The VP930 does look very good...but then 22"....

I will make a decision based on this information -- thanks again!
