    Question Best 19" TFT????

    I am thinking of getting a TFT... but aint very keen on them as they suck compared to CRT for gaming etc... Well aparently... So i want to get one that will be as good as a CRT as possible.
    Currently i have a Dell D1226H CRT at the moment. what you guys think is the best 19" TFT, also i run 1600x1200 btw...if not then suggest something that does 1600x1200 like a 20" if needed.
    cheers

    dell 2001 is a nice 20 incher that does 1600*1200 and is the cheapest you're gonna find at between £350-400.

    keep trying aria specials or snap up one from dell at 25% off atm.

    oh and i wouldnt say they suck, im well happy with my tft

    First, wrong forum. Second they do not suck (the older ones did). Third with TFTs you need to keep then at their "native" resolution. A 19" will have 1280 x 1024 (same with 17"), whereas a 20" will have 1600 x 1200 (which it seems you want).

    Get a Dell, good screens @ cheap prices (with the 25% off).

    For a 19" you want the UltrasharpFP 1905 here

    For a 20" you want the Ultrasharp 2001FP here

    After some browsing here on the forums, I found Komplett have a special offer on a BenQ monitor:

    http://forums.hexus.net/showthread.php?t=46579

    306565 BenQ 19" LCD FP937S+ 8ms - Stylish, sleek and fast! £265
    However, doesnt appear Komplett have updated their offers on their site yet :/

    This used to be the case but is becoming less so these days.

    Yes 25%, and you may be able to pickup a coupon somewhere
    Or try phoning them, and barter.

    You like the 20" or the 19"?
