    check out the viewing angle, one of the worse I have seen in quite a while

    I use multiple samsung 913B (19", 8ms, 170/170 viewing, DVI, 700:1)
    street price on those things is around the $600-700 mark, for a much
    better quality LCD

    Thanks for that. after seeing that I just realised it really put down
    88degree viewing angle.
    Darn .. I think its the same like my passive screen 10 yo laptop :p

    I don't think a narrow viewing angle is a REAL problem in a desktop
    environment as one generally sits right in front.

    The rest I can't comment on....But I'd be surprised if it's any where near
    as good as the 20" apple LCDs I have just purchased, I'm thinking of getting
    a few for my PC as well.........

  5. I think you'll find the Apple monitors these days are built by Samsung.

    My understaning was that it was 88 either side of the centre, so to compare
    to Samsungs "170" (ie aplles to apples), you need 88 x 2 = "176"

    Does that mean we can't compare Samsungs to Apples? :))

    sure are, which is one of the reasons I went for samsung over apple, the
    price difference made it a no brainer

    I did mate.
    So far I can't see any wide 20" CMV's in our price list. The next inline is
    only Viewsonic VP201b that cost around 40% more.

    Btw .. does CMV sell normal 20" LCD now ? Guess I have to ring our
    distributor to update our price list.

    If anyone wants to compare prices (than specs), the following might be
    useful as a reference point.

    I notice it does not list every conceivable product or range, though.

    As far as I know it is
    Exacty, 88 "either side" of the axis, both on the horizontal and vertical
    Exactly ... once again, if you want to "compare" it to the Samsungs you
    have to "double it", as that's the way Samsung report theirs. Or another
    way. 1/2 Samsungs to compare to the Dell, Samsungs is "85 degrees."

    only difference is that you paid for the apple - everyone else didn't which
    include Samsung and dell 20" screens - only difference is case! and apple!
    I was going to get apple cinema display too - but these once here are
    equally good and much cheaper

    but, the apple is stunning to look at!

    Why would you go out and buy a 20" Dell for $825 when you can get the
    SAMSUNG 913V 19" LCD MONITOR 12ms 0-dead-pixel $495
    SAMSUNG 913N 19" LCD MONIOTR 8ms 0-dead-pixel $600

    I like to save a quid and have just slightly less for more than 30% less.

    LCD monitors are comming down in price every day.

    Seen a XXXX? brand 19" 12ms for $400 at the weekend.

    What I have seen I do like the Samsung.

    Because wide screen is the current trend now ? :p
    Anyway I think I will postpone my buy as my manager is offering me a too
    good to be true offer on one of the brand we carry ;)
    + there is a $99 shipping fee that makes the figure upto $925 .. whilst last
    time they were clearing if for $900 including postage.

    What are you smoking? The Dell is a wide-screen 1680x1050 resolution monitor
    that you would sit directly in front of. Viewing angle is hardly an issue
    with a desktop PC. Your Samsungs are simply very average and I bet you're
    pissed that you didn't wait for a decent wide-screen LCD.
