I was in the dark ages until a few months ago, I picked up this nice cheap 23" LG display. I'm not super picky, just wanted something cheap and big with LED backlight, HDMI audio capabilities and VGA/DVI/HDMI port options.
At one station, I am using an older 23" Apple Cinema Display with the DVI interface at 1920x1200 attached to an IOGear KVM switch for Zorro, PowerMac G5, stock G4 Cube and a Mac G4 Hot Rodded Sawtooth.
Although my computers connect through the KVM switch, I have a second monitor, an old Dell SP2208WP A00 monitor with DVI, HDMI and VGA connectors. Zorro's is connected via HDMI for two screens while DVI is used for a two screen display for my Mac Sawtooth destop and the VGA is used for my Mac Cube running OS 9.2.2.
At another station, I have a HP ZR24W monitor for Thunderball, Son of Zorro, Batman and HacCube on an IOGear KVM switch.
Delighted to see this thread. The monitor is my last big decision, build-wise, but after opting for higher end components in the build, it's eaten into my monitor budget - which was originally $500 for the Dell U2410 (as a graphic designer, I need a decent monitor) or potentially a 27" 2560 x 1440. (There was a HP 27" that fit the bill, the ZR2740w that's available for under $700, but questioning if I need something that big).
Now tho, my budget is more like $300, unless I can get work to pick up the bill, so I'm scrambling.
