    Online Shopping..Monitors

    Need some recomendations for some good sites for new monitors. Looking for a HD Widescreen style. If anyone has a manufacturer or model they like (not lingere/swimsuit unless you have pics and they better be female) that would help too.

    Thanks for the input!!

    Dell has some sharp ones. Could try newegg.com as well.

    Re: Online Shopping..Monitors

    What size screen are you looking for, does it need to function as anything else besides just a computer monitor?

    I'll have to look. My wife ordered it. She works for the VA and gets a discount through their website. I'll take a look at it tonight when I get home.

    Second Dell, that is what we use. I just signed a PO for Dual 22" monitors for $329 each, which I thought was very cheap.

    Just make sure you have all your connections figured out. Like we said in the other post, if you're not using a DVI connection your picture is not going to look very good no matter how good the monitor is.

    Re: Online Shopping..Monitors

    I highly recommend Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!. They really value their customers. I have been their customer for roughly 7 years and have never had a problem with them. I prefer Samsung LCDs but I also dont have anything against dell either. newegg is a great place to look because of all the customer reviews.

    Off topic here. Shocking. How did the Dell dude land Drew Barrymore? I'm not saying she's #1 in my book, but it just seems odd.

    OK, you can continue the original discussion.
