Wouldn't you know! 2 months after my warranty ran out my monitor starts acting up. The only help I can get from Dell when I ask what is wrong is..."you need a new one!"

My video card can do analog or digital....and I think it's time (pass?) to go LCD. Probably 19", which is what my CRT one now is. What would you buy??

My boss got one from CostCo for less than $150. She's had it for over a year now and it works great. It was on their website.

Interesting website Rose.
No, I don't have to buy Dell! Although they do have one sounds good. I'm looking for LCD Flat panel, analog+digital, adjustable stand for height (want it as low as possible). Fast response time, clear type & good graphics. There's lots of bargin deals out there for amazingly low prices, but I'm more interested in quality and reliability (at the best price).

I have a Sony 17" LCD XBrite technology and I love it. There is 19" available too. I was lucky with the price because Circuit City had a special on it when I bought it. The price was 450 $ but I got two rebates from Circuit City + 1 from Sony. I ended up paying 280 $ for it.

I have that one, also, in the 19". I am in love with it!! I love the brightness, although some people might not. I believe they have the same one without the brightness feature for a bit less $.

It doesn't have a height adjustment but with the adjustments it does have, it sits just perfectly for me. And the design is so pretty, too!!

I recently upgraded from a 17" flat screen to a 19" flat screen. I would never go back to the old style of monitor.

That Sony looks good to me and has a great rating through PCWorld, etc. I'm just afraid with the bottom edge the way it is with no height adjustment it might not go as low as I want it. I don't like tipping my head up to see the top of the screen. (progressive lenses you know!) Glad to know you like it and it is on my list.

My Sony sits at just the perfect height for me. I couldn't ask for anything more perfect. I'm short, though.... 5'1" so it may not be as great for someone taller. I have the model with the X-Brite technology, as the color is very vivid, which I really love. If you don't like vivid color, you can get the same model but without X-Brite.

I'm 5'2" and have a neck problem. Hurts to tilt my head up even a little. The Dell 19" I have now, the bottom of the screen is 7" from the desk, and even with my chair raised as high as I can and still get my knees under the keyboard draw, it's not low enough.

I am the same height as you and I have progressive lenses too. I don't have to tilt my head up or down to look at the screen. I mesured the distance from the top of the desk to where the screen starts. It's barely 4" 3/4. You can tilt it to be more straight and it will be approx. between 4" 1/4 and 4" 1/2. Maybe I will leave it that way for a while and see if I like it better. I could also lover my chair more. But like it is right now, I don't have to move my head at all. If you don't like it, you can always bring it back, but they might ask you for restocking charges.
