X-bit Labs has finished another big LCD display roundup. This time they take a look at twelve 19" LCD displays from Asus, BenQ, HP, LG, NEC, Samsung and ViewSonic.
Monitors with big screen diagonals are getting an increasingly larger share of the market, but the 19” sector hasn’t stopped to develop yet. New, sometimes very interesting, models are regularly emerging on it because a 19” monitor has a high enough resolution not only for office work but also for home unless the user has particular requirements to the screen size (for example, to watch movies more comfortably) or is limited in his budget. Today, 19” models have a very reasonable price, which is often the decisive shopping factor, because choosing a 17” model instead provides but a small gain in money while the difference in the screen area is significant. Monitors with a diagonal of 20” and longer are more expensive today (but they have been constantly declining in price and are very close to become competitors to 19” models).
You can check out the roundup over here. If you want a display with a standard resolution the HP LP1965 is a good choice, according to the reviewer. In case you want a 19" widescreen LCD you can take a closer look at the LG Flatron L196WTQ and Samsung SyncMaster 932GW - both products stood out from the crowd.
