LG's L204LT 20.4-inch widescreen LCD monitor seems perfect for gamers with some rather nice stats, 1680 x 1050 native resolution, 2000:1 contrast ratio and a 5ms response time.  Think Computers was rather impressed by this monitor, although they did take marks away because it doesn't come festooned with dozens of USB ports.

The Acer AL2216W 22" monitor isn't really aimed at those looking for perfection, but rather those looking at getting a 22" widescreen monitor for less than $300.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with the monitor, as you would expect from an Acer product, but 3dGameMan felt that there was something missing in some of the games they played.  For casual gamers or just for anyone whose eyes are getting

If you are in the market to get a mid sized LCD monitor, then give a little time to ExtremeTech and get some shopping ideas in return.  The monitors range in price from $200 to $400, and the quality is widely varied as well, one monitor managed 8/10 while another struggled to hit 4/10.  Don't just assume that their rating scale matches yours though, extras like an iPod dock may be a negative in your opinion.

Playing on the big screen

One of the biggest displays at the CEDIA expo would be the new 1080p digital projectors, and Digital Trends spent a good amount of time checking out the offerings.  The extremely bright Panasonic PT-AE2000 for the home can produce a full 1500 lumens, which allows viewing without needing a blacked out room, and will display a 10' image from 11' away.  For those with a bit more to spend, Sony introduced the $15,000 VPL-VW200 with Carl Ziess lenses and a BRAVIA signal processing engine which will allow up to a 35,000:1 contrast ratio.  There is also a ~$3000 Sanyo LP-Z2000 which may provide some competition to those thinking of buying large LCD or plasma TV.

"With all of the high-def projectors cropping up at this year's CEDIA expo, it's easy for even the most die-hard home theater buffs to get blinded by the light. And with prices starting to plunge below $4,000 USD, 1080p projectors are starting to catch the attention of more mainstream buyers as well. If your home cinema is a little short on screen acreage, an HD projector is an ideal way to make the jump to the big time, but you'll need to familiarize yourself with all the new options first. Here are four new HD projectors that should be on your big-screen radar."
