    My monitor "clicked" and the sides narrowed up one inch on each side. I presume it is getting ready to take a crap so I am going shopping. Found Envision, HP, and several others. Does it make a diff? I am comparing contrast and resolution with the prices. I need a 19"-20" flat screen. Walmart has a 19" HP for $228. Thanks!

    320090T, there are a lot of good monitors out there right now.

    Figure out what you want to spend and how big you want to go.

    Myself, I wouldn't go any smaller than a 19 inch and it would have to be a LCD monitor.

    There are some great buys on just about any of them.

    Go for it, you won't be sorry!

    Hauxfan!

    Go to Newegg.com and you will see hundreds of monitors as well as reviews of each. The choices are bewildering but a 20" wide screen is reasonably priced and you'll love the view.

    I had trouble with an Envision so I cannot recommend that one but check that website and they will have "deals of the day." Pick a name brand and you can't go wrong.

    Best of my four flat screens is an Acer AL2051W wide screen I bought at Staples I think last year. Its the best bang for a small price. If you buy a wide screen make certain your video controller can handle it before you buy or plan on maybe replacing the video card.

    Lots of good flat panel displays out there. I know the one above is good for text and photos. Note I DO NOT play video games! YMMV. bob finger

    They're all pretty much the same product. Buy a decent brand at a good price and you probably won't go too wrong. I've been buying a 22" Acer widescreen from MicroCenter for $225 lately, and it's not bad for the money. Acer owns Gateway now, and they've both been around for 20 years. That said, I wouldn't hesitate to buy a Viewsonic or an LG, to name two others. Dell's monitors are adequate, but sometimes overpriced. I avoid bottom tier manufacturers. Stick with a name brand and you'll be fine.

    I too, own an Acer. They are probably not as well known as some, but they sell a lot of monitors at a reasonable price.
