I've been using an older Viewsonic 4:3 19" monitor for a few years now. It's starting to behave oddly, losing signal and I have to use voodoo it get video back (I've run the gamut on this thing, two PCs with different video cards, multiple settings, etc--so this isn't a "fix my monitor thread"). I'm looking at picking up a new widescreen monitor and it's been ages since I've paid attention to the ups and downs of the display industry. The last widescreen I used (at work, but very nice) was a Samsung 20" wide, but I'm thinking of bumping that up to a 22" or so.
I don't think refresh rate is an issue anymore, but I like a snappy/crisp looking monitor as much as the next guy/gal. I think my price range might be anything up to $300USD, so that should give people room to suggest a decent piece of equipment. I play FPSes, MMOs and RTSes mainly and I've got a nVidia 460GTX 1GB card, just for reference. Ergonomics aren't really a concern, but tilt might be a good thing to have (or maybe not since my wife loves to jack with my screen^^). Otherwise I'm a single monitor man with the need of some more realestate and a monitor that won't go black on me randomly.
I don't really have brand loyalty, but I've had good experiences with Samsung models as well as Viewsonic (up until this sucker started acting up). What have you folks had good experiences with?
