What monitor do you currently use?

:thumbup:



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.

LG Flatiron E2350 23" LED

Update 2014: Still using the LG :D

What I love most about the U2410 besides the great image is all of the inputs:

(2) Digital Visual Interface - Digital (DVI-D) with HDCP
(1) DisplayPort(DP)
(1) High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI)
(1) Video Graphics Array (VGA)
(1) Component
(1) Composite

Dell UltraSharp 2005FPW

The 2005FPW is an oldie but goodie and is perfect as a second screen.

Paired with an ADC to DVI adapter to split the single lead into DVI-D, USB and Power


Works great with my old PC now, and will be the display I will use once my Hackintosh is built

I have a several work stations for my systems.

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.

Finally, at station for my older Mac 7600, I have an old NEC LCD1980SXi.

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.
