Anyone recommend a 17" Flat Screen Monitor?

  Mr Confused 15:32 09 Apr 2006

I looking in to buying a new LCD monitor for my PC to replace my rather large and old CRT monitor.

I'm thinking of getting a 17" monitor but know very little about what I should be looking for. I'm not looking for a top spec monitor just something average or slightly above average. Can anyone give any pointers on what specifically I should be looking for?

For example what is a good:

- Resolution
- Brightness
- Contrast
- Response Time
- Colours?

I'm on a budget of about £150.00 (may be willing to raise a little more). Can anyone recommend a particular model?

I look forward to your responses.

May not be a"brand name"but it is an excellent monitor with a three year warranty.

To be honest most monitors nowadays perform well, it is just a personal choice unless you want something special.I hope that you get full enjoyment out of your new purchase.

I'm sure you will be very happy with your Samsung. I have had Samsung CRT and (now) TFT monitors and have always been well pleased with them. Currently using a SyncMaster 930BF, which is excellent.
