Which is the best 17" CRT Flat monitor. May have recommended the LG Flatron which is for about 8100. Would there be any better and at what price?

go in 4 a ACER AF715 . will cost u round 6.5-7k . has a max resolution support 4 2048x1536 max res n a max refresh rate of 100hz at 1024x768 !!! this is the best ne monitor gives inthe 17'' category .
LG would give u max 1280x1024 n 85mhz n would cost u round 1.5-2k more than the acer 1 .

I like Samsung SyncMaster 793MB

The SyncMaster 793MB is a renovated design product with the OSD control buttons dramatically moved to the right panel. The 793MB is monitor, utilizing MagicBright2 functions, allowing support up to 500cd/m2. MagicTuneTM allows the user's environment can be precisely controlled by mouse.
Cost:- Rs8000 [Might be less at Lamington Road Mumbai]

Features:- http://www.samsung.com/in/products/monitors/crtmonitors/17magicbrightrange/793mb.asp

Specs:- http://www.samsung.com/in/products/...agicbrightrange/793mb.asp?page=Specifications

Resloution Supported
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1280 x 1024 @65Hz
1152 x 864 @77Hz
1024 x 768 @86Hz
800 x 600 @109Hz
640 x 480 @134Hz

But the Resolutions also depend on the GPU you have[i feel]

Has excellent features just visit the site.

@mamba no one even works at 2048x1536 max i have seen people
work at 1024x768 if you are a Animation or Editing Expert then only
you require resolutions of 2048x1536.

@quad , i was suggestin him the best he could have , the best bang for his buck . also refer 2 chip , oct issue , n there 2 the acer has been placed above the samsung .
at 17'' u must have a res of atleast 1280x1024 , if not 1600x1200 , n the samsung supports a refresh rate of 65 at 1280 ..... not 75 , thus resulting in flickerin , not gud 4 1z eyes .
votever he decides , if i were spendin the moolah , would go 4 the acer

Samsung 793MB - I have it.

Surface is true flat and looks are good.

1024*768 @ 85Hz, and MagicBright can boost brightness when you are watching movies or playing games which u feels dark.

Also support of samsung is good at least here in mumbai.

Overall this seems to be best 17" monitor for me.

You don't need MagicBright2. It just costs more for the same function as increasing your contract and brightness. Save the 500 bucks and get the DP. Acer might be good too, but I have the 17's samsungs. Usually once you get used to one, you don't want to change as the color and display IS different between manufacturers and you notice it if you are using a computer for a long time. I think I paid 8200 for my Black 793MB. Same price as LG. If Acer is 2K cheaper get that.
