    Hi,

    I'm looking to get a flat 17 or 18' flat panel monitor and would like some advice. I will only be using this monitor for the internet, print shop, word processor..etc..I will not be watching movies or on this....occasionally I might play a game , but not too often. I keep reading about a DVI cable and video card to make it look better , but I don't think I need it. I need a reccommendation for a 17 or 18" flat panel ...Thanks a lot!!

    MIke

    Hi shim,
    If you can afford it and really want a flat panel go with the 18. But,in my opinion, a CRT 17 or 19 flat screen would do the job at a lot less money.

    Thanks for responding.......I want to get a flat panel to free up some space too.......My roommate works at Sony so Imight be able to get a decent eal on the SDM-M81....I just wanted to make sure that it will look ok since I don't have the DVI card everyone is talking about....someone wrote on a review that his didn't look good without the card and for an $800 monitor, I don't want this to happen....I'm looking for some suggestions on brands that would do me good. Thanks for the help.
