Question Buying new LCD Computer monitor, need advice.

I'm purchasing an LCD monitor for my computer (I want my desk space back for paper work), and I have a couple choices; 1 is I buy a Samsung SyncMaster 193p http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...801&pfp=BROWSE (it has a 1000:1 contrast ratio, not an 800:1) or the Sony 19 inch flat panel (not sure of the name) http://www.circuitcity.com/rpsm/oid/...Detail.do#tabs which would be a better screen? and better overall? the thing i really like about the samsung is that its wall-mountable, so if i were able to mount the sony to a wall, i'd get it in a heartbeat, but i'm also turned on by the 1000:1 contrast ratio on the samsung... so as you can see, i have a dilema going on here, i have the money for both, and i'm planning on buying this monitor tomorrow. so, any tips i can get tonight or early tomorrow would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

o, btw. i've seen both of them in person already.

the syncmaster looks nicer. THey both have crap resolution. If you could find one with 1600X1200 res then I would go with that. Unfortunately it looks like they dont make those.

I would go with a 17" instead it will be cheaper and look nicer. With 1280x1024 res on a 19 inch things wont look as nice.
