    Buying a NEC Monitor...

    Sometime in January, I will buy a new 19" Flat CRT. I am currently looking at this monitor.http://www.necmitsubishi.com/produc...e/nec_index.cfm It is a NEC AS95F. Do you know if it is any good?

    Recommended Resolution:

    1280 x 1024 @ 85 Hz

    So, I would like your opinions on this monitor.

    I have a sony 19 inch at 1280x1024 I only get 75Hz. To me the most important thing about a monitor is the agp or dot pitch and maximum refresh rate. This seem to me like a good monitor.

    The maximum scren. resolution is 1600x1200 (on this monitor) at 76Hz, mine only goes up to 70Hz. Anything 75 above is pretty good good in the eyes!

    The best 19" monitor I know of is the Iiyama Vision Master Pro 454. It has a Mitsubishi Diamondtron flat tube like most in its class but the big difference is the electronic control gear, it supports 130kHz horizontal refresh rates, 115kHz on a 19" is rare and standard these days is 96kHz for mainstream models. What this allows is stupidly high refresh rates at all resolutions. It can do 1920x1440 @85Hz, 1600x1200 at over 100Hz. The styling is also the sharpest I've seen on any monitor and you get a USB hub in the base (as well as ****ty speakers, but they do come in handy sometimes). It is a beauty, every day you use your computer and sit down in front of it you will thank yourself for buying it. The display is the primary interface with the PC and also one which doesn't need to be upgraded every 18 months like other components, so you can invest a lot of money in one and see returns for a long time. You will only want to upgrade one of these when decent, affordable, gamable 18" LCD panels come out. Which at this rate will be another 2 years away, and even then a CRT will probably beat it for flexibility of changing resolutions. They've come down in price a lot and would be an excellent long-term buy. Looking at UK prices I don't think it will cost much more than the NEC you're proposing, but I can't find that exact model over here. Iiyama's warranty rocks as well .

    I am really a big fan of NEC moniters. For their price I think they make outstanding moniters. Ever since they combined with Mitsubishi their moniter quality has significantly benefited. Good luck, that moniter looks great.

    Thanks, but it is bad for small text. I'm now looking at the Samsung SyncMaster 900 NF. It is good for small text.

    First, I prefer the Ivory.

    http://www.samsungusa.com/cgi-bin/na...id=955DF-Ivory

    It can only go up to 68hz at 1600x1200 THAT'S NOT GOOD!

    And at 1280x1024 onyl 75hz! That's bad.

    Personally I think it only looks good.

    The Iiyama Vision Master Pro 454 is good.

    But if it was me buying I would look at the trinitron way.

    But for 300-400 CND the 955 DF is the best monitor you can buy.
