January 2005 was an interesting month for those observing LCD monitors as some impressive changes have come about: Samsung announced that it will progressively move towards a zero dead pixel policy, and prices have decreased so much that supplies now exceed demand. The real winners of all these changes are buyers who now have the option of bigger and cheaper monitors. 20?LCDs are now more and more affordable. There 1600x1200 pixels monitors, instead of 1280x 024 for 17?and 19?s, now target the general public. But which monitor to choose? That question can partly be answered with BeHardware's recent LCD roundup.
?Tested in our last roundup are the Acer AL2021MS, Belinea 10 20 05, Dell 2005FPW, LaCie Photo20Vision II, Nec LCD 2060NX, Philips Brillance 200P4SS and Sony SDM-S204H,?BeHardware informs.
?We were lucky to test all these impressive monitors, especially two of them: the Dell (our favourite) and the Philips. The first will please movie fans and those looking for a big monitor to simultaneously display two documents (movie and text, two texts, text and web) The other, the 200P4, is a little more reactive and will be better for fast FPS type games, even if afterglow is more noticeable than with 17?and 19?TN panels,?concludes the article.
