Default Out of these Two Monitors Which Would you say is better and why?

19inch Dell
http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/p...4&sku=320-5581

Samsung Syncmaster
http://www.blowoutcameras.com/produc...d-froogle.html

or if anyone has any other good suggestions in this price range they are also welcome, must be widescreen though.

i'd go for the samsung since its got a faster response time, its cheaper and it has the DVI and VGA port as well as a million other features plus it has twice the contrast ratio than the dell with the samsung being 2000:1 and the dell 1000:1

Yeah, Samsung monitors are very good indeed
Dell's okay too actually, but they tend to suffer in colour variations, etc I've heard.

It also looks great.

I have noticed with my Samsung Syncmaster however, that when in DVI mode, colours band, and yet in VGA, they don't.

Yeah, really only get a Dell if it's one of the more expensive models.

I have a syncmaster, it's great and I have used the 19 inch wide dell(my friend has one) it isn't that good.
