The Samsung SyncMaster P2370
is a 23", 1920x1080 LCD which is about 1.25" thick.  The stylish design is the main focus of this display, The Tech Zone didn't spot ghosting but they didn't sound convinced it would be there for a hard core gamer.  The brightness and colour contrast were certainly acceptable, so this display might be best used to watch movies.  With it's ability to show true 1080p quality and its stylish design, it would satisfy most HTPC enthusiasts.

Your reasonably priced HD gaming solution

The ViewSonic VX2433wm is a $220, 23" LCD whose native 1920x1080 happens to be the same resolution as 1080p.  This means that your HD content will not have any pixel manipulation in order to display.  It also sports a fast enough response rate to allow ghosting free gaming.  Big Bruin would like to give you a warning about the built in speakers though.

At first glance, when you are shopping for an LCD it looks like you have a lot of choices beyond simply choosing a size.  There are dozens of vendors with several models in at each display size, which adds up to a fairly long list when you are trying to decide.  Look a little closer and you might notice that almost every single one of these displays uses a TN matrix.

ViewSonic doesn't need your scaling engine

The reason that the ViewSonic VX2433wm 23.6-inch is called an HD LCD Monitor is because it's native resolution is 1920x1080 (16x9 not 16x10), meaning 1080i/p content can be played without any image manipulation.  ViewSonic kept that theme with the inputs as well, having an HDMI in for playing with HD consoles or a Blu-ray player, as well as the more familiar DVI-D input.

If you are looking for a high quality monitor that comes with a load of extras, like audio, USB, and a webcam, take a look at Samsung's SyncMaster 2263UW.  If space is an issue, then having almost all your common peripherals built into your monitor is a real life saver.  Also worth mentioning is that the TFT display is of high quality, you will not end up with something that can do a lot of things poorly, this monitor excels at everythign it does.  Drop in to Tweaknews for more information

The ASUS VW266H looks perfectly normal at first glance, a 25.5" LCD that runs at 1920X1200 and has a 2ms grey to grey response rate is a common sight now; the $350 price tag is unique.  You aren't limited to using this as a PC monitor either, with HDMI plugs and S/PDIF out, it is perfect for gaming consoles or even attached to an HD cable box or PVR.  The only caveat that Ryan found is present on all TN matric LCDs; the viewing angle sucks and you had better plan on sitting directly in front of the monitor.  Check out his full review at the top of the page.

"The ASUS VW266H and VK266H offer an outstanding combination of features, screen size and price to really put a stamp on the LCD monitor market. If you are a gamer on a budget or just a PC user looking for a display that can also be used for your console gaming or DVR set top box, then definitely give this ASUS monitor a shot!"

Check out the HIS Multi-View DVI, maybe the easiest way to set up multiple monitors for those who haven't switched to a 64bit OS.  It supports up to 1600 x 1200 or 1680 x 1050 if you use widescreen monitors and you can send that signal to 6 different monitors if you are so inclined.  Bjorn3D loved it for extending desktops and allowing huge amounts of space for windows and menus, it was not so impressive for gaming or for watching movies.&nbs

X-bit Labs has hit the thirteenth iteration of their series of comparisons of 19" monitors, this time with seven models from four different companies.  Thanks to the popularity of larger sized monitors, and general reduction in the price of LCDs, you can get a 19" display for very little money.  Perhaps even better is that for a little more money, you can get very nice features on that 19" monitor.  Those same features on a 22" or larger display make the cost prohibitive.

"In our today’s article we are going to discuss another seven displays with 19-inch diagonal from Acer, Asus, Samsung and ViewSonic. Among them are a couple of pretty unusual solutions: one based on PVA matrix and another one with a built-in web-cam."

As much as you may want a 100" high def display, the space it takes up can really put a damper on your plans.  That doesn't mean you have to stop dreaming, you just have to dream of a different box.  For $1000 you can get your hands on a 720p projector, or for $2000 you can get 1080p quality.  If that sounds like something you could use in your life drop by Digital Trends to see all 10 models.

Envision isn't a big name in monitor, but that didn't stop OCIA from trying out their Envision G218a1 22" professional monitor.  The stats look good, 1680 x 1050, a response time of 5ms, brightness of 300 nit and the contrast ratio is 700:1.  In testing, it did offer enough quality that it would pass for most gamers wanting more screen for less money, but make sure you find it at the $160 price that OCIA did.

Samsung's new Touch of Colour series of LCD displays received a mixed review from X-bit Labs.  Even though these monitors are all part of the same series, the differences between the models are quite extreme.  The 19" and 22" models received top marks, with X-Bit Labs describing them as leaders in their classes.  On the other hand, the 20" and 26" suffered various problems, including the need for a lot of work to be done on the colours to get proper reproduction.
