What do you mostly do with your computer? Photo editing, games, reading text etc...

All of those monitors are great for any of that, but for gaming I would go for the SCEPTRE model, because it only has a 2 ms response rate. It is also the cheapest monitor out of the bunch. In fact, I would just the the SCEPTRE because its a good all around monitor.

I have heard some things about other SCEPTRE monitors, but I can's seem to remember where. If you want ultra-reliable service, go with the Acer or Samsung.

Not doing anything special with the monitor. Viewing movies, browsing the net...etc. I am not a gamer.

The Sceptre I'm unsure of. I hear both good and bad reviews on them. It does have nice specifications though.

I have seen some really good reviews on the Samsung 216BW. Having good color during video playback.

Acer makes a great monitor also. I have a 19" widescreen LCD that works very well.

I'd say Samsung, followed very closely by Acer, then Sceptre.
