Default Monitor suggestions!

My monitor is almost broken. It now has a very high pitched ring along with lovely ripples in the screen that somtimes flash as a line of horizontal boxes. It basically is extremely hard to look at for extended periods of time and I have no warranty left on it.

I'm going to be looking for a reasonably priced (around $200) 24" LCD monitor. Do any of you have any suggestions?

Perfect, thank you. Hopefully LG will last a little longer than ViewSonic.

I've got two LG's, one about a year old and one a few months old and haven't had any problems or complaints about them.

I've had a LG TV for over year now and just bought a 21.5 inch monitor of theirs a few months back both are fantastic and I haven't had a single problem with. I went with this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824005152. Can't go wrong with LG imo.

With today's changes in monitors, I would NOT buy a LCD. I would look for LED options, even though you might spend 50 more bucks.

Here we have a 22" Samsung, one of the best at its time and also an iMac 27" LED or the MBP LED.

It is just outrageous. The LCD which I was so used to love and think it was perfect looks too bright with low contrast compared to the LED ones. I'm not kidding.

Before you buy, I would say go to a store and look at both, an LCD and LED, side by side. If you think there is not that much difference, fine, but you might end up saying "I won't buy an LCD ever again" like I did.

I've actually had great success with all 3, Viewsonic, Samsung and LG.

Maybe I just don't know a standard life span of a monitor, but I've only had my ViewSonic for maybe a year and a half and it's been having this issue for at least the last 4 or 5 months if not longer.

LED monitors more expensive? I just want something that's not going to break in a year.

LED is more expensive but it's dropping.

I've had my 19" Viewsonic (the model escapes me right now at work) for 4 years with zero issues and never so much as a dead pixel.

With these types of electronics, usually you'll know within a relatively short amount of time if you happen to have a defective model.
