Looking to replace my CRT monitor with a 19" or 20"LCD one

Concidering the Dell or Viewsonic

I don't play games but watch TV and DVD plus spend a lot of time on the internet.

What would you guys suggest?

The Dell 2001FP gets a good review on Antec -
You might not play games but DVD's can also be fast paced, you'll notice any ghosting just as much as watching a fast paced film as playing a game.

Have a look here and see if there are any that tickle your fancy, if you have DVI output on your graphics card I suggest you look for a screen with a DVI input to get the sharpest image. A response time of 16ms or less would be ok but for the best viewing you should ideally be aiming for about 12ms otherwise fast moving obejcts on a hig contrasting background will look kinda of blurry on the trailing edges. Peace out!

I just bought a 19" Acer AL1913W widescreen TFT monitor for £160+vat. I don't think it is a fantastic monitor but it is very good value and seems to perform very well. It has a 20ms response time which I believe is not all that great.
Almost a year ago I paid £320 for my 17" 12ms Hyundai Imagequest Q17+...2 weeks later is drops to £250...Depsite dry-humping my wallet those many months ago its still my baby :)
I am now concidering the Acer AL1951AS which I hope to get for £200
