Tyke Supply Dual LCD Monitor Stand

If you find yourself picking up any extra monitors this holiday season, you may be in need of a monitor stand. When it comes to monitor stands though, Ergotron is often regarded as the leading manufacturer of such LCD stands, but their products come with a hefty price tag where a simple side-by-side LCD arm can cost over $300 USD. If you do not want to spend several hundred dollars -- likely more than the cost of a monitor itself -- on a metal stand, I have a better solution. For the past two months, I have been using LCD monitor from Tyke Supply. They are wonderfully reliable, fully adjustable, and cost just a fraction of what it would cost if buying from Ergotron.

ASUS VE228H HDMI LED Monitor

The last time an ASUS monitor was reviewed at Phoronix was a year and a half ago when checking out the ASUS VH236 monitor that ended up being a fairly nice 1920 x 1080 monitor with HDMI support. After recently needing to purchase another monitor, however, we decided to pickup the ASUS VE228H, which offers similar specifications but measures up to being a 21.5-inch LED-backlit display. Here are a few words on the ASUS VE228H LCD monitor after using it for a few weeks.

Dell P2210H DisplayPort Monitor

If you've been looking for a DisplayPort-capable monitor to connect to your new graphics card whether it be a FirePro V8800 or one of the new ATI Radeon HD 5000 series graphics cards that are capable of using Eyefinity to drive many displays via this newest display connection standard, the Dell Professional P2210H monitor is worth considering. The 22-inch LCD display retails for around $200 USD and offers DisplayPort connectivity along with DVI and VGA.

ASUS VH236 LCD Monitor

Over the years we have looked at many ASUS products primarily with when it comes to graphics cards and motherboards, but never had we got our hands on an ASUS LCD monitor. However, that changed earlier this month when receiving the ASUS VH236 LCD monitor. This 23-inch widescreen monitor from ASUS has a native resolution of 1920 x 1080, a 2ms GTG response time, ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio Technology, ASUS Splendid Video Intelligence Technology, and a dual 2W speaker system. This ASUS display may not be as nice as the Samsung SyncMaster 305T but it does offer more features than some of the other monitors in its class like the Dell S2409W. Continue on as we test out the ASUS VH236 LCD monitor.

Dell S2409W 24-inch LCD

The prices on LCD monitors have dropped a fair amount in recent times and it is now possible to find 24-inch LCDs approaching the $200 USD price-range, which a few years back was just reserved for a couple 17-inch LCDs. One such example is the Dell S2409W -- a 24" LCD panel with 1920 x 1080 resolution and has VGA, DVI, and HDMI inputs. This sleek monitor may not have as many bells and whistles as some of the other displays out there, but its price is nearly unbeatable.

Toshiba Regza 32RV530U 32" LCD HDTV

The cost of LCD HDTVs have dropped dramatically in recent times where it's now possible to find a moderately sized HDTV for just a few hundred dollars. With more budget brands now surfacing with their own LCD HDTVs that are even more competitively priced, it can be a bit challenging to find a LCD HDTV that is good and bargain-priced with the selection being so large. One of the LCDs we recently encountered at Phoronix was the Toshiba Regza 32RV530U. This TV is only 32" but it provides full 1080p, multiple HDMI inputs, and will cost you less than some of the other similarly equipped LCD HDTVs on the market.

Samsung SyncMaster 305T 30-inch LCD

If a 22" or 24" LCD monitor doesn't provide enough screen real estate for you or you just want to go all out and find the best monitor without having a real budget, you'll more than likely end up looking at the 30" monitors that are available. There aren't many but Apple has a 30" Cinema Display and Dell also have a very popular 30" monitor, but there are also some from other manufacturers. In fact, today we are looking at the Samsung SyncMaster 305T, which is a 30" monitor with a native resolution of 2560 x 1600 and has a price tag of over $1200 USD.

Acer P243WAid 24" LCD

In the past we have looked at several different Acer LCDs and generally have been quite pleased with them. Acer offers LCD panels that range from cost-effective 17" models to higher-end models that are much larger and offer additional features such as a metal stand, integrated audio, and HDMI. For those that are interested in a large high-resolution screen with HDMI support and a fast response time, but that isn't too expensive, Acer has the P243WAid. The Acer P243WAid is a 24" LCD that fits these traits and sells for about $390 USD, but it lacks some extra features such as height and pivot adjustments.

Acer AL2223Wd Office

While not our primary focus at Phoronix, in the past we had reviewed the Acer AL1714CB, AL1732 Prestige, and dual AL1715b LCD monitors. Even though Acer's LCDs are not nearly as popular as those from Dell are, we have been very fond of the models that we had looked at in the past. Being nearly a year since we looked at the AL1732 Prestige, which was a phenomenal display, we once again chased down another new Acer monitor. In this review we will be looking at the Acer AL2223Wd Office Line 22" LCD monitor. The Acer AL2223Wd monitor has a recommended resolution of 1680 x 1050 with its WSXGA+ screen and the viewing angles are 160 degrees for both horizontal and vertical. Other specifications include a 300cd/m2 brightness, 800:1 contrast ratio, and 5ms response time. Both VGA and DVI are supported. For what it's worth, this display is also Windows Vista certified.

Acer AL1732 Prestige

The Acer AL1732 Prestige is certainly one of the best sub-$200 17-inch LCDs presently available on the market. Not only does it offer DVI and VGA input but it also comes equipped with an anti-reflective coating, cable management abilities, integrated speakers, and a metal stand. In addition, Acer's Prestige lineup is a winner of the International Forum Design.
