Need Recommendations for "value" "good enough" 20/21/22 inch LCD screen

Hi all,

I need recommendations for a large (GTE 20 inch) LCD screen of "good enough" quality. My old faithful 11 year old EIZO CRT screen that I use at HOME looks as if it has finally given up the ghost. About a year ago, I bought a new EIZO 21" screen to use at my CLIENTS. It's beautiful, but it cost over $1100, so I am not inclined to buy one like that again. Since the time I bought the new EIZO I have seen screen prices drop (but not of EIZO…) and the entry level size get bigger. I have noted that there is a ViewSonic 22" for instance that is about $400 - $500.

Since I am a technical writer, quality of text is of the utmost importance. i.e., sharp, well -defined, and black text should be "dark black", not grey, otherwise you will be straining to make out the letters and will get eye-strain. I think for that you need a contrast of at least 1000:1. That ViewSonic 22" I saw has 700:1. Really, I should try to go and see it. Anyway, I need some recommendations.

tia,

In general I'm not that impressed with Acer equipment, but we've had absolutely no problems with their monitors. We currently have over 100 of the 17 and 19s. Here's a 22 for a good price.

Thanks.

Yes, looks good. Problem I see is that both my laptop and desktop put out 1600x1200 but not the 1680x1024 advertised by the specs pf that ,onitor and many like it. Even some of the newer ThinkPads (T40 range) don't do 1680x1024, or even 1600x1200 for that matter...

Not as great of a price, but how about something like this. These aren't getting to be as common as they used to be with many people switching to widesreen.

Or something like this, but it's a bit more spendy.
