i want a monitor for less than 200 dollars. If you have good knowledge of monitors i would appreciate advice on:

 

- is the acer monitor i linked a good pick?

- are Acer monitors good in general?

 

- can i get a better monitor for rougly my budget?

- what companies make great monitors and why?

- what companies are known for making bad monitors and why?

 

Very important that you elaborate your advices. Thanks for reading.

All monitors under $300 are the same. It doesn't matter what you get. As long as it is 1920x1080 and about 21-23" @ 60Hz, it is good. Generally, at the $200 or under price range, ASUS and Viewsonic are good.

Really? Cause as I recall it was you who was the one cussing me at base. Also, re-read what you just said: one 15 second delay (which is an exaggeration to begin with) ruins floor times? You are beyond ridiculous.

This comment couldn't be more wrong. First you say they are all the same, and then you go an contradict yourself by specifying what resolution and refresh rate he should be looking at.

 

You made a good choice, Mist_Assassin, go with that monitor.

My 15" Acer monitor has been a royal pain in the rear; several dead pixels, as well as a strange coloration change in one corner. Not saying they're all like that, but that's my experience.

I've had my 22" for 3 years now, it's an Acer and it's been even better than my 21.5" HP screen (on a dual screen setup with screens that have a different age). Unless it's a no-name brand, just look at what general quality and resolution you have.

IIRC he's talking about the quality of the components used. Not different types of products.
