I have been looking @ 2 monitor's and cant decide to stick with a 19 inch or change up to a 21 inch. I have a mag 19 inch but I want to go flat screen but I dont think the 2 veiwable inches is worth twice the price for a 21 inch also.

Option 1

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=24-116-282&depa=1

Price $ 233 after shipping

Option 2

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=24-116-229&depa=1

Price $474 after shipping.


Or is you guy's have a better Idea but no lcd I dont have that much $

I have a 22" and love it. But if I could do it over again I would probably get a great 19" versus a good 21". My 22" just takes up too much room and produces TONS of heat in the summer. Good Luck.

I don't care for 21s for gaming... they're too big for me, i end up glancing around the screen if I'm sitting close enough. Also I host lan parties, and they make my p.o.s. plastic tables warp :eek: at 80lbs each.

You might also want to check out refurbs from http://www.azatek.com. You can get refurb flat 19s for ~175 after shipping. We got 2 B grades shipped for like $250, Mitsubishi's... can't comment on quality or reliability since we haven't got them yet tho.

yes, 19inchers winning, thats my boy! i find that on larger monitors i just find myself sitting back farther, so through your perspective, it isnt really getting any bigger.
