Thread: Looking for a new monitor

24.1" 1920 X 1200 P-IPS 16:10 12-bit internal Look Up Table Height, Pivot, Swivel, Tilt D-Sub, DVI-D, HDMI, DisplayPort, USB 6 Modes (Adobe RGB Mode/sRGB Mode/Scenery Mode/Theater Mode/Standard Mode/User Mode) Under $500
QuickFit Virtual Scale
The ASUS-exclusive QuickFit built in the monitor provides real-size document, photo, and grid mode on top of the operating windows on the screen. It can activated via a hotkey on monitor and used as a guide to accurately view and edit photos
ASUS - Displays- ASUS PA246Q
There's one more feature that doesn't contribute to our usability score, but which we're sure will be welcome news to some users: the resolution. Ever since 16:9 became the standard aspect ratio for monitors, 24'' displays with a 1920 x 1200 resolution have become increasingly rare, if not entirely extinct. But the extra 120 lines which make up the difference between the two resolutions mean you can add 10% more information, which is very useful when you're browsing the web, looking at photos or editing documents.

Customize Your Individual Viewing Preference
The Display Mode and Smart Scaling features allow you to change the monitor view to suit your liking and to simulate any in-game experience. Interchange instantly between different screen sizes, from 17" (4:3), 19" (4:3), 19"W (16:10), 21.5"W (16:9), 22"W (16:10), 23"W (16:9) to 24"W (16:9), using the Display Mode. Or take advantage of the Smart Scaling feature and enjoy the flexibility to freely scale the screen content to any custom size. You can certainly use the two features together to get the best possible view for any application or game.
About $800 will get you both.

Just a general note on monitors.
I have two 23" Acers, one is 7 months old and the other is a couple years old.
Neither have any bad pixels and have worked flawlessly.
For the low cost they are pretty impressive.“Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.”

Nice Small NEC Monitor I Own
DooG-0-Mended and on sale for $73 and a PVA screen to boot!
$146 will get you, in dual pivot mode, 26" wide X 15" High and about 30" diagonal of PVA goodness. Note the NEC specs on the first linkey.
Industrial strength stand and case, hence the 23 lb. shipping weight , which is twice much as larger "slim" monitors often with flimsy stands.
Supersecret code TECHBARGAINS will save you 10%.
Hmmmm...$131 for a version of a 30" PVA screen Monitor (when in dual portrait mode) ain't bad, either.

PS. Obviously not a gamer's dream. Good colour and easy on the eyes and back. And now wallet.

need to get your eyes checked... there's more than that for 3D vision.
...Right from the source (2 Pages of Monitors, 4 Pages of Projectors, and 2 of DLP TV's compatible with 3D Vision)
