    Review: ViewSonic VA2626wm 25.5-inch LCD monitor

    Short Version: At well under $600, the 25.5-inch ViewSonic VA2626wm is a good monitor for those of you who want to get into the huge LCD game at a reasonable price. While considered to be somewhat inferior to the comparable Samsung 2693HM, the ViewSonic carries an enticing $50 mail-in rebate until the end of November.

    Tiny 4.3-inch USB-powered LCD monitor

    For those of you who (like me) feel claustrophobic working off one, single notebook display might find a wee bit of comfort in this 4.3-inch USB-powered LED-backlit monitor. It’s capable of pushing out 800×480 pixels at 24 bits of color and has a little kickstand in the back to allow it to rest gingerly atop your desk. The thing costs just under $200, which seems a little steep to a… Read More

    $1000 for 27 inches – Dell's new UltraSharp 2709W looks UltraNice

    I have a 2407WFP (I think) at home and it’s been a fantastic monitor. Of course, having paid $700 for it, I certainly expect it to be nice. Same with this, their newest 27-inch model [Update: looks like Dell has removed the page. Thanks for the tip, Jason].

There was a really nice 102-inch model — you know, for oligarchs — the super-thin models, and some weird model that rises out like the Great Pumpkin. Not exciting, but cool enough. Check out the “52-inch” screen inside the 102-inch… Read More

These are truly flat screens. Read More
