Viewsonic's VX2235vm wide aspect LCD
Fast response times but slightly low resolution
Viewsonic today announced a number of new LCD displays that target the sweet-spot 19-inch to 23-inch market,
and all of them at very affordable prices
. New to the scene is Viewsonic's VX1935wm, VX2035vm and VX223vm, ranging from 19-inches, 20-inches and 22-inches respectively. The screens are targetting at gaming and video users but Viewsonic says business uesrs can also benefit from all three screen's 5 milliseconds response time. The following are quick specifications for the screens:
Brightness: 280 nits
Brightness: 300 nits
Brightness: 300 nits
The odd screen out of the bunch is Viewsonic's 22-inch VX2235vm, which being two inches larger than the VX2035vm, should over more resolution. Other 22-inch and 23-inch screens from other manufacturers offer up to 1920x1200 resolution, which is even available on some notebook computer screens. According to Viewsonic:
All three displays offer more screen real-estate, helping business users increase productivity by managing multiple documents at once and providing gamers with more room to roam their richly detailed in-game surroundings or toggle on-screen menus. The VX2235wm, VX2035wm and VX1935wm also feature a newly designed thin bezel with integrated full-sound stereo speakers and power supply, helping users keep their desktops free of cable clutter.
Fast response times seem to be the primary focus for many of today's leading LCD manufacturers. More and more consumers are purchasing LCDs for movie watching, game playing as well as typical office work. All three displays from Viewsonic are available in gray or black and are priced at $199, $349 and $399 respectively.

HAve you seen the Dell or Apple 30" LCD monitors in person? I recommend you do it... there is no CRT in the world that can come close to how great it looks. Its 2560x1600 so at 30" its not as tight as a 20" screen of a CRT but the extra 10 inches buys you alot. No comparison at all.
I have a Dell 24" at 1920x1200 and I saw the 30" the other day and was absolutly amazed by it. It was just incredible, huge and sharp, great color rep as well.

The 30" ones are nice but they offer nowhere near the amount of pixels they should for that size. Also the Apple one is slow responding and I suspect it's the same with the Dell one.
I'm right with the other poster - give me a big really high res screen but until then I'm sticking with my Sony F520 21" CRT and it's 2048*1536.
Some years ago IBM sold a super 22" LCD named the T221 which had a resolution of 3840*2400 and that's what we need. At the time it cost like $10.000+ but they can be found on Ebay for more humane prices today on problem is they need a special Matrox graphics card and they are also slow as in not for moving pictures.
