Although 19” LCD monitors are inevitably rolling down into the low-end market sector where price is the main guiding factor and new technologies appear only after they have been tried on expensive large-diagonal models, there is still a wide choice from very different models, fast and slow, beautiful and plain-looking, with an accurate or shabby setup. TN matrixes have not even become as dominating as they are in 17” models, as is illustrated by the Samsung SyncMaster 940Fn.
Speaking in general, I don’t see any clear outsiders or leaders on this market and I don’t think any model deserves a title like Editor’s Choice or Best Buy or anything. Each of them has its own pros and cons and your choice is going to be determined by your particular preferences and requirements. I hope this article has helped you find your bearings among the multitude of monitors from different brands and take a more critical attitude towards the accompanying advertising slogans.
