Opinions and recommendations about monitors

Hi. Simply looking at purchasing five monitors for basic medical office work environement around $200.00. No heavy graphics. Was looking at 17 inch Viewsonics, then found some 19 inch monitors for around the same. Only basic requirements are response rate = or less than 8ms, a good contrast ratio and resolution and DVI.

The Viewsonic 19 inch had a resolution of 1440 x 900 whereas most of the 19 inch are 1280 x 1024. Is there much of a difference. http://tinyurl.com/yftfe6

It would be essential that the monitor have just basic speakers built in and would help if the DVI cable were included.

I am also looking for an accessory arm to mount on wall or desk.

I realize this is a lot for around $200.00 and, of course, the arm extension would be separate. (Just wondering if certain monitors work better with these.

Any help is appreciated.

always go for higher resolution as this is a way of limited future proofing

Then 1280 etc.. is more than then 1140... if you do the multiplication. I have just not see the 1440 before. And, I know you/we can't answer this, but why would an industry leader decide to go with 1440 x 900 rather than the more traditional and higher resolution (slightly). Also, since they do, you would think they would hype the 1440 somewhere in the literature.

Thanks.

1440 * 990 is a widescreen display wheras 1280  * 1024 is a standard laptop screen
