LCD Monitor Reviews

Tags : 

These days, most computer users will choose an LCD when they are shopping for monitors. LCD monitors offer excellent image quality and they hardly take up any space. For those of you that previously worked with old-style, computer monitors that were bigger than your kitchen TV, this is a sigh of relief! You can expect to pay quite a bit when purchasing an LCD monitor but once you have it up and running in your home, you will forget the dent it made in your wallet!
Below are reviews of some of the popular brands in LCD monitors.

Samsung
Samsung monitors come with a hefty price tag. Their prices tend to be in the upper ranges of comparable monitors by other brands. When it comes down to it though, Samsung do great LCD monitors. If you are a gamer or do a lot of graphics work, you will be very happy with a Samsung monitor as they provide excellent picture clarity. Samsung monitors usually come with speakers built in to the monitor itself. This is not an option I prefer however for many consumers it offers convenience.

Dell
Dell monitors are very popular among computer users. In its upper ranges, Dell offers its UltraSharp line of LCD monitors. These monitors offer great image quality and come in average and larger than average sizes. Dell monitors usually give users a lot of flexibility by building in a wide range of ports into their monitors. This gives users the option of attaching external videos, computer games and other peripherals to the monitor. Some users have complained that the base of some Dell monitors are unstable. Be sure to check this is not the case with your model before you leave the store.

HP
HP LCD monitors are not rated among the best in LCD monitors but they are still a good option for the every day computer user. HP LCDs do offer a crystal clear image in most cases however they seem to struggle with clarity when movies are being played on them. The design of HP monitors are attractive and eye-catching. HP LCDs are fine as a first time LCD screen but if you use your computer for movie watching or gaming, then you may want to look for something else. Do leave room, however, for HP to improve on this in coming years.

Acer
Acer monitors are great functionally. They deliver a crystal clear picture, they are lightweight and they are practical. Whether you like your monitor to come with speakers is a matter of personal preference. Personally, I like my speakers separate from the monitor so on this point, Acer monitors get a “thumbs up” from me. There are some design issues with some Acer models. Users have complained that the stand for the monitor only allows for backward and forward tilt but not swivel. This poses somewhat of a limitation. Acer monitors can be found for a great price but this does not mean they are cheap. Acer gives you great value for money.
