I am planning to buy my husband a 19 monitor and am confused. The top priced one I am considering is a Samsung 930B about $380after rebate. Then, some other makes and models on down in price range. Specs for all are very close with the exception of 1: the Contrast-- these run from 700.1 (Samsung to 400.1. and
2: the Response Time running 8 m (Samsung) to most that are 16m. to one that is 25m

My husband, who is slightly colorblind and also has some slight vision problems, uses the computer a good part of his day. . He currently uses a 17. I might add that his computer will support any of these monitors. And, importantly for this decision, he does not play any games or watch any dvds.
For the most part strictly date.
Should I consider these contrast and response times to be critical in making the decision?
I can get no knowledgable advise at BB, CC or Frys. Thanks Liz

I'm no great expert on flat panels, but the Samsung sounds like a killer monitor, and the price is good, too. Staples has it with a couple of rebates and you might even get it cheaper - the EZ rebate from Staples as well as the manufacturer's rebate can bring the price down even more. From this discussion I get the idea that this is a pretty good set of specs.

My god! 380$ ( = Rs.18,000 in India ), just for a monitor!

I can purchase a whole new computer with a 15" monitor in that money.

any way, Samsung is always a good choice. And in my experience Philips monitors do rock with their affordable price tag.

jbravo this is a 19" LCD flatscreen we're talking about for about AU$500, and yes I probably could buy a whole system for that money but I wouldn't want to! :thumbsup:
