Best budget 19" monitor?



New Member
Given a mere $300, which monitor would you buy? I have considered two models by Samsung: the Syncmaster 955DF and 955SL. I want to find one with as flat a screen and possible(I know the true eye-poppers are far more expensive, but there has to be something out there, right?) Post your thoughts!

#2 has the 955DF for appx $300. It is where I always buy my monitors because they always have the best prices. Don't buy anything else there, though.

I have an Optiquest Q95 and I love it. It's pretty cheap, only paid 290$ for it.

Paid $179 for a Gemstar 19 inch. Can do 1600x1200 at 76hz. So far so good.
