For LCDs, get Samsung when you do get the money. CRTs, I like Viewsonic.

Phillips haven't done anything wrong by me, they have been around for a long time so know what they're doing, plus their warranty is hard to beat

My Viewsonic Owns all. It is very sensitive though. That is one of its few drawbacks.

MY 19" get 85hz at 1600x1200 and 75hz at 2048x
