Gotta second the Iiyama recommendation. I have a 3 year old Mag
Innovision (the Gateway 2000 17" that they shipped at the time) and it
looks _so_ poor next to my new Iiyama Vision Master Pro 400.
However, there is a very slight shimmer on the Iiyama, but I think it's
just because the refresh rate is too low. Must whack in the right
drivers. (I had to reinstall Win98 after a nasty partitioning accident.
I suppose that's what I get for trying to set up a triple-boot system.)
Also, the Belinia's are pretty low end (read "crap"). They're cheap, but
they're not very good quality. A monitor is the one part of the system
where you shouldn't hold back on spending cash. (A slightly slower hard
drive won't damage your health. A really crap monitor will.)
