This thread may be better off in the Consumerwatch forum with a title like 'Which 21-24" TFT monitor?'

Anyway, to get you started there's some good info at click here. CRT monitors are also mentioned to give a more balanced perspective.

What are you going to use the monitor for, & what's your budget?

If you have a few models in mind, post the links here & some of the monitor boffins may be able to suggest which ones may suit you best.

Here's a list of TFTs, 21" & above (sorted by ascending prices)
click here.

I may not contribute any more to this thread (I'd probably consider a 21-24" TFT sometime in 2020!), but this post will shunt you up the list & hopefully elicit some informed responses. Good luck with the eventual choice & purchase : ) G

There is no industry standard benchmark adhered to by all manufacturers so you cannot rely on a bald statement of xxms response time.

A lot will depend on we

here is no industry standard so different response times may be using different benchmarks for example.

well i had two monitors in mind the first being
dell 24"but in tomshardware they gave the thums down
when it came to watching dvds,cos it makes too much noise, in other forums there were complain about the noises when brightness increased,but some have faced no prolems,it maybe some of them were faulty,if anyone has used or using this monitor would appreciate if tell what experince they had with this,the second monitor was samsung syncmaster 214t
it seems there are no reviews availale for this,if i am correct,budget would e around 600-700 pounds

Have a look at Evesham - they have 30" Monitors which also double as a TV. I am using one at this moment and I don't regret buying it at all! (Bought last May)
