I was thinking about getting a 19" LCD and I don't really want to spend more than about $350. I'd really like it to have dvi. So far I'm thinking Viewsonic VX924, Samsung 940b, and Benq FP91G+. Is there something else I should be looking at for my pricerange? How are these LCDs? Which one would you choose and why?

The Viewsonic VP930b is probably the best all 'round 19" LCD, but it's a little over your budget. 8bit panel, DVI & 2x D-sub, 8ms GTG, 20ms BWB with little overshoot, 1000:1 contrast...

Those latency numbers may seem high, but it's actually one of the fastest 19" LCDs around.

Look at it compared to the "4ms" VX924 in the Tom's Hardware reviews:

The "4ms" VX924 may go as low as 4ms, but it also goes as high as 32ms. The VP930b is almost twice as fast in its worst case scenario, at 17ms.

Okay. I've reevaluated my options. Samsung 940b, 930bf, or BenQ FP91G+. I'm leaning towards the 940b or is the 930bf worth the extra money. Let me know what you think.

Merry Christmas!
