22" LCD Monitor with smallest bevel?
show user profile  del3d
Can you guys recommend anything that you've used yourselves? I'm looking for 2 monitors that will seam nicely. I don't care about brand names. Black, preferably. DVI input.

Last time I was shopping for monitor I was going for 2 monitor setup. At the time NEC had thinnest bezel. Don't know about the quality of those, but someone might know more.

Anyhow, can't remember exactly which monitor it was, but this one is along those lines.

EDIT: I ended up with 24" wide Samsung. Which has enough resolution... for now.

I run 2 Dell 22" wides in my office and they are great. Side by side the edges of the screens are only about 1 1/2 inches apart. Both are height adjustable too.

Thanks for your input, guys. Yup, Dell seems decent. I got two of the 19" at work and their bevel is 0.75" each. Looks like it's Dell's standard. Will do some more research..

At work the dispatch centre has 6 NEC 19" flat screens per workstation for the 911 mapping / call taking.
These screens run 24/7, and have been in service for approx. 4 years.

The only flaw I've found is a few screens actually have what looks like slight old school phosphor burn in on them from the mapping software sitting in the same place waiting for 911 calls.
They also seemed slightly yellow (in th white areas) compared with another brand side by side.

I have an LG, and its excellent. I have the 3000:1 model which I bought a year ago, and I've just ordered two more at 5000:1 for my new machine. I think they come in black too. Recommended.

get an S-PVA Panel if you want to use it for graphics, TN panels really do suck image quality wise

no no no, the point is get a 30 inch instead of two smaller monitors, ive just got the dell 3008 and its much better than using two screens, no seam. Plus it has dvi,vga,s video, component, hdmi, displayport connectors, picture by picture and a scalar chip to correctly scale non native res which is 2560 x whatever. It is expensive but you can find good deal online.
There are other makes of 30 inch out there too, i think syncmaster(?) do a good one

Everyone likes it sugarcoated, but that doesn't make it the best way to take it.

I recently bought a 22" acer myself, to replace a 17" dell. I run dual screen and my other monitor is 19"... it's completely dwarfed by my 22". weird though, for only being 3" bigger. Was tempted to pop in another graphics card and run triple screens but I think i'll just sell the Dell (oldest of my monitors, but still in perfect working order... anyone interested!?)

30" is nice, but well over my planned budget. I really like the 2 monitor idea where you can send windows to opposite screens with a single click..

I'm tempted by Dell. It's really slim. Simple and elegant.
800:1. 5ms.

And then I looked up the LG. They have 10000:1 ratio these days! The reflective finish and cheesy blue power button bother me though. Only 2ms response..

I'll make a trip to BestBuy or something to get a closer look..
