Actually not really, I dont see a whole lot of monitors coming through theIf I get the option to purchase a new monitor do you have any suggestions or
brands/models to avoid?
shop, just a few Compukes and HP's...I personally run an Optiquest V55(15") and
I really like the features and sharpness it has for being one of the
cheaper-priced monitors. I guess I would probably stick with one of the better
name brand monitors, like Sony and Philips/Magnavox or Sylvania. Usually the
Computer name-brand monitors(H-P, Compaq, etc...) seem to be a bit overpriced
for the screen quality you get.
The Sony's that I've seen 17",19", and 32"(or something big like that) are
absolutely stunning! Probably because of the Trinitron-style CRT construction,
That Sony 32incher seems nearly as clear as my little 15" but BIG!!! The guy
who owns it is a Descent player, and I got dizzy watching him in action....just
imagine using that in a CFS dogfight!
Basically, if you can...check out the monitor you intend to purchase if
possible. Because, like TV's, each brand will have a little different picture
quality...even at the exact same vid card settings.
Sorry it's not a real definitive answer, but that's what I would look for.
