Hello all -

I am currently in need of a very nice Flat Pannel Monitor.  I saw that Dell has this nice 20 inch Ultra Sharp with pretty good resolution.  I probably would go with it.

HEre is the link:

My question, can any one suggest a Flat Pannel with awsome resolution, It would need to be a 19" or higher.  The resolution the Dell has is 1680 x 1050.  

Please let me know if anyone can let me know of any other Flat Pannel.  It does not have to be a Dell.  

Your assistance as always is appreciated.

    You won't go wrong with the Dell.  It's an excellent display at a very good price.  Also has as high a resolution as I've seen on a 20" 16:9 LCD.

    Nearly all 17" and 19" LCDs are 1280x1024 in a 4:3 form factor.

    Here's an alternative you may want to consider:

    I haven't seen this particular monitor, but Samsungs are generally very good.

    willcomp: Well... while Dell monitors are generally very good, what you said isn't exactly true, especially in this case. The monitor shirwaziri linked to, the 2007WFP, is a very new model from Dell - and it has problems.

    There is a banding issue that seems to be standard with most if not all units:

    shirwaziri: I think you need to indicate how much you want to spend on a monitor. If you have $700-800 to blow, you might consider the Dell 24" 2405FPW monitor. This model is tried and true.

    You should also decide whether you want a widescreen or a regular 4:3 aspect monitor.

    There's also the Apple Cinema displays, which are pretty expensive and require a special DVI adapter:
