    Looking at a number of well priced LCD monitors, 17" at Tiger.com They are in the 200 dollar range. Can you tell me which is the better choice?:
    Videoseven L17PS
    Megavision Mv 171/173
    Scanport 822A
    Wintergreen CMVCT-723A
    DCL by Sceptre 7A
    BenQ FP731
    So far I'm advised luminance over 250 is desirable, contrast of 500:1, and response time of less than 25 ms is good. Does active matrix make a difference? Does digital vs. non-digital also make a difference. This is tough to evaluate.
    Thank you,

    Look at the stuck/dead pixel warranty.

    Better ones have a zero tolerance, others have a number that must be exceeded before they will warranty replace.

    A stuck pixel can be bright in all cases, of one colour. That can be very disconcerting if it is near the centre of the scree. A dead pixel is one that does not light, annoying but less distracting than stuck.

    Zero dead/stuck warranty screens will cost more in many cases.

    DVI is certainly worth it if your video card has DVI output. The benefit can be seen, as it eliminates 2 conversions analogue to digital and back.
