    Need an LCD for college which is best???

    I will be doing some gaming, web browsing and all that other good stuff computers do. I want something that will last a long time and i have about $500 to spend on it. I decided to do this instead of getting a laptop for now.

    hope this linky works for you

    FIXED LINK:

    link doesn't work. you can get a good 17 in lcd that's under $400, namely the benq. not too sure of the model number, but that's the manufacturer. i suggest lcd simply b/c those desks you get in your dorms are not that big, and you save a lot of room with a lcd. not to mention you won't break your back carrying an lcd up 3 flights of stairs. check the sticky on lcd experiences or the lcd gamers thread to find out more on lcd's

    i wrote a writeup awhile back explaining what all the terms mean and what to look for.

    basically you want some with brightness over 250 and contrast as high as possible, usually around 400:1 or 500:1. if you're gaming or watching movies you'll want something with a low low low response time. an average response time for a 17" LCD will be 30-40ms. BenQ LCD's boast response times below 20ms. and even their larger 18-20" screens are below 30ms. if you want something good with gaming and multimedia get a 17" benq. can be had for $380-430.

    refresh rates aren't important with LCD's because they don't constantly refresh. if a pixel doesn't change color it doesn't get redrawn. for this reason lesser quality LCD's will have trouble with clear crisp text. this is where contrast ratio comes into play.

    I think i fixed the link. If not i narrowed my choices down to NEC either the:
    -NEC/MITSUBISH 17" LCD MONITOR ASLCD7V
    -NEC MultiSync LCD1760V-BK 17" LCD
    OR
    -NEC/Mitsubishi 17" LCD Model 1760NX
    Im leaning towards the last one because it has DVI
    on newegg it says the first one is 16ms response and the other two are 25ms response

    as far as image quality goes yeah that's a good panel. they don't post their response time though.

    http://www.newegg.com/app/Viewproduc...=%20ASLCD7V-bk

    that one would be better. it has all the same numbers except it says it has a 16ms response time. if the response time isn't posted from a company that has response times on another panel chances are that iit's not as good a screen. plus the one i linked you to is cheaper.
