    Definetly this one, bought one myself last week but havnt used it yet, it supposed to have a great contrast ratio, god response times and what i can actually tell from my actual experience, the monitor looks great its also really flat and comes with both DVI and the other one cable

    Bought one for my niece a couple of months ago. I suppose I could pinch it for a day to test

    going purely on specs i have to agree, the LG looks to be the pick of the bunch.

    I agree and its fantastic.
    The pictures on the net do not do it justice.

    It looks great and is very sharp. Also, it runs Oblivion,BF2 etc brilliantly at 1400x900 (maybe 8800GTS has a hand in that)

    Make sure you get the DVI cable though

    £109.99 + free delivery ATM on Amazon
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/o/ASIN/B000G...pf_rd_i=468294

    I bought mine from there in February. Ordered Sunday evening...delivered Tuesday morning.

    Well, you get what you pay for. It's aesthetically inoffensive, though it is made of a sort of cheapy feeling plastic, but the actual important part, the picture, is great. And now that its gone down to £110, its a steal for a 19". You certainly won't need another monitor at least until the new organic screens come out.
