OT: Help me choose a 19" monitor please!

Recommended Posts

Sony, Mitsubishi, ViewSonic, all use contractors to assemble their monitors.

You really have to look at specs to get a good comparison.

Your ViewSonic has a tube that is common to other monitors that have short neck CRTs.

I got in the habit of looking up components and factories to find 19" Diamondtron tube monitors for $217. You will see this monitor with a name on it at a much higher price.

All I'm saying is, I would NOT pay anywhere near $1000 for a 19" monitor at this point. If I was in the market for the $1000 F400, I'd just go ahead and grab a G500 for the same price and step up to 21" goodness.

Besides, the F500 has its problems in other areas that the G500 and G520 fixed. But they lack the smaller dot pitch. So it kinda evens out. All of them are excellent monitors.

I have a question about monitors that has always plagued me. Whent the dot pitch gets higher, is that better? Like is a .27 dpi monitor better than the same exact monitor at .24 dpi?
