Going to buy a 2nd monitor to go along with my 19" CRT for trading and have decided to go the LCD route as prices are more reasonable. I've checked the major review sites (cnet.com, pcmag, pcworld) and read various threads here and elsewhere. I also read Baron's section on monitors in Hardware. A lot of the comments, reviews, and opinions seem to contradict each other depending which site or thread you read. For example, Viewsonic LCD monitors have been slammed here on ET but they get Top 10 awards on the computer review sites. Basically these are my questions: 1) Is 17" enough? They're almost the same viewing size as a 19" CRT, right? 2) Analog or digital? My graphics card has a dual-head, but it's analog. Is the difference such that I should consider buying a new digital graphics card and go with a digital monitor? How about buying a monitor with inputs for both analog and digital and sticking with the card I have? 3) When you have a CRT and an LCD connected to the same card, do they have to have the same resolution settings or can they be independently set? LCDs I understand should only be viewed at their native resolutions for best picture. 4) Any comments on Samsung, Dell, or NEC monitors? 5) Your basic recommendations. Thank you.
