Viewsonic is a very good reputable brand with many choices in your price range. You can find them on www.newegg.com and in regular retail stores. I purchase many computer parts through newegg and they are a very good site. Do not go with a monitor that is not a well known brand. Computer monitors are like televisions...you purchase one from the cheapest place you can find one and it's a brand nobody has ever heard of, it will be dead in a few months, but if you buy a good brand name, it will last. Viewsonic monitors last FOREVER. Both DH and I have viewsonic monitors (both computer people, I'm a CAD drafter, he is Information Technology). Mine is a flat panel that is about 3 1/2 years old and still like new. DH's monitor is a gigantic flat screen (old school, but with no curved screen) that must be about 8 years old and also displays like new. I will never buy another brand again.
