    Samsung Syncmaster 931C review

    8  

    So what's the deal with a 19-incher that costs as much as this? Your extra money may not buy you a glowing ring of lights such as with the LG Flatron Fantasy Ring, but you do get Samsung's new cold-cathode flourescent backlight...

    Look - it's endemic of the environment we work in that we can't review something with the words 'fantasy' and 'ring' in the title without sniggering. Despite the chucklesome name, the LG L1900R is a handsome panel

    From the moment you switch this monitor on, its colour performance is impressive. This can be attributed to HP's new generation of panels designed with improved colour performance in mind

    BenQ FP222Wa review

    8  

    As a 1680 x 1050 22-inch display, the FP222Wa widescreen monitor is well suited to home-users; especially so when taking the 5ms response time into consideration. The flexible viewing angle means it's great for movies

    The next generation of LCD monitors are improving things immeasurably, at least in a visual context. BenQ's 24-inch offering has been heavily delayed, but the final release model proves that the humble LCD still has a whole lot of development left

    Spring is on the way, but it's still a mite chilly in the office. Thankfully, I'm sitting here writing this review on a beast of a monitor that's radiating enough heat to give me a tan. And it's beautiful

    Philips 190P7 review

    7  

    As a brand known for its multimedia, you would expect something special from Philips. Therefore, you would be forgiven for thinking the Philips 190P7 was a bit old-fashioned in appearance, as it only measures 19 inches and has a resolution of 1280 x 1024

    When it comes to variety, LG produces a wide range of panels in different sizes and is one of the leading makers of screens destined for use on laptops from all of the major manufacturers. So it knows a thing or two about screens

    Apple 20-inch Cinema review

    7  

    As you would expect from Apple, its displays are as stylish as they are multimedia-centric and come in a range of different sizes. Apple has given its 20-inch Cinema display a minor update with the brightness lifted from 250 nits to 300 nits

    Viewsonic VG2021WM review

    8  

    Viewsonic's VG2021WM makes no attempt to appear sleek and slender and instead takes the function-over-form approach.The 20.1-inch screen is fairly large, but the lower bezel that houses a pair of rather weak two-watt speakers is fully 90mm tall

    Samsung SM932B review

    8  

    Most TFTs look rather like a rectangular box that is mounted on a stick, not so with the Samsung SM932B. This is rather curvier and more fashion-conscious than that. It stands on an oval base and the shiny curved housing vaguely resembles a large iPod

    You'd be hard pushed to find an area of computing that hasn't been influenced by Apple's design. Samsung's latest monitor is no exception, but there's a lot more to it than a whiter shade of pale.

    7  

    This screen isnt the best showing from Iiyama. The E2200WS-B is de?nitely a panel for those with price concerns - after all, £290 for a 22-inch monitor seems like pretty good going. Then, when you plug it in and get going, youll see what your moneys actually been spent on.

    Spending the best part of £900 on a 19-inch 1280 x 1024 resolution monitor may seem like insanity, but for colour professionals there's a method to the madness. If you need spot-on colour, a conventional budget monitor will never provide it

    Multimedia displays with speakers and loads of connection ports tend tocarry either ridiculous premiums or gimmicky features, and generallyfail to impress. Thankfully, the ViewDock does a bit better for itself.

    Technology gets better and cheaper over time, and this is especially true at the moment for LCD monitors. Professional machines are now within the grasp of more meagre budgets.

    We've grown rather fond of NEC's range of flat-panel monitors; they're always stylish, well designed and a joy to use. However, we're not so sure about this latest model from the range

    Sometimes it's hard to choose between watching TV and getting on with more worthwhile pursuits on your PC. The multi-function Samsung SM940MW allows you to do both at the same time.

    Drop an inch on your monitor size and you can expect a bit of a price crash. Compared with our favoured 20-inch spec where models cost anything up to £500 or more, this new 19-inch Iiyama weighs in at just £175, looking like it could be a bargain.

    Eizo S2110W review

    8  

    The S2110W won't win any fashion awards and, for merely general purpose use, it's too expensive to consider. However, if outright image quality is your main buying criterion for photo editing or high-end graphics work, the Eizo is worth every penny.

    We'll admit that it's hard to imagine anyone being disappointed with this swish-looking ingénue couched supine on his/her desktop. It's a pretty thing, cast in glossy black with a heavy, solid base and an entirely adjustable tilt-and-rise stand...

    Acer AL2032W review

    On the face of it, the Acer is an expensive piece of kit, with a price tag that's a good deal weightier than most 20-inch models. However, it's positively bristling with clever technology that more than outweighs the purchase price.
