    Question Mark

    I want to get an LCD monitor with at least 1600 x 1200, and I found an affordable monitor, but I'm confused.

    This is the monitor that I want to get:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824112158

    This is the same one on a different website:

    http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...659&CatId=1410

    The second one has a slower response time. Are these the same?? Also, the second one shows a lower contrast ratio.

    So it has a different response time, and you asking if they are the same monitor?

    Yes, they are the same monitor. They have the same model number listed. Why the specs are different I don't know? Typo maybe?

    No matter. The one with the better specs is $25 bucks cheaper.

    Do you really need built in speakers? If not, you're gonna pay more for something you don't need.

    Another recommendation would be to search for the monitor you want, and then watch for a couple weeks on eBay. You can find some great monitor pricing there if you're patient.

    So the 1st one is accurate.

    Do you really need built in speakers? If not, you're gonna pay more for something you don't need.
    Alot of the ones that have them are crappy and dont change the price.

    Ok nice, thanks Singa. I was thinking about the 4 ms monitor u showed me but I like the added space of the 1600 x 1200 res and the response time is still better than my current monitor.

    As usual, going to the manufacturer's site reveals the truth.

    Looks like TigerDirect made their specs up. Makes you wonder how often they do that.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
