    I've been waiting for a very long time to get an LCD monitor.

    Based on having such a great month at work, I set aside some dough to buy one and did today. It came with a rebate too!

    I got a 19" Envision monitor. It was rated by many sites to be one of the best new monitors on the market. Viewsonic, Sony, Samsung and HP had some competition monitors, but they did not compare to this one based on price and features.

    I must say, it is a winner. Crisp, clear, vibrant, and a great screen to look at. I have the settings on 1600 X 1240 which is it max resolution, and it just does not get any better than this. It will make using Frontpage for the website much easier with a larger screen by 1.5 inches than I had, and the great screen resolution is better on my eyes.

    Just and FYI - anyone wanting a good monitor, here are the specs:

    The price runs from $600-800. I bought it brandsmart for the $600. It is the ONLY LCD monitor with a 3 year mfr guarantee. (Which was important to me.) It also has a rebate right now, so I got it total for $500. THat was the same price, roughly, of my last 19" CRT monitor. So I am happy I waited.
