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.

For a bit under $200 you can pick up Nvidia's GeForce 3D Vision
googles and enjoy a somewhat 3D experience alone, on some games. An alternative has popped up; one that does not require you to don the glasses and that will show the 3D view to everyone. The iZ3D H220Z1 3D Mo

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.

For raw stats, the 24" Soyo Pearl TFT LCD sports a native 1920 x 1200 resolution with a 2ms response time and a 1000:1 contrast ratio; though as with all LCDs, the exact definitions and measurements may be other than you might expect. R&B Mods spent a goodly amount of time taking pictures of the various display tests the

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.

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
