    Are you looking for advice on where to shop and what to buy?

    did you want widescreen or normal 4:3 ratio. Anyways, i would check out viewsonic, samsung, and LG's websites and see what you like. Those would probably be your best bet in your price range. :)

    What do you plan to use it for? Photo editing, spreadsheets, movies/games?

    That will help determine what kind of monitor you need.

    This thread will have more information that you likely need, gets mildly technical, but it's educational...any other questions, post back here, or on that thread:)

    Do you need to physically purchase it in NYC, or can you order it online for delivery there?

    I fear that you will see a price premium by buying from a physical store :(. Little that can be done though...If I stumble across a deal for an in-store purchase, I'll post it:)

    go for that one! its excellent and a great deal. its got better response time from most other 19" monitors, that is if you don't mind that its not 20" +

    Gilgam, that looks like a mighty nice monitor, but I think our friend here is looking for a brick & mortar store to pick it up at.

    New York City area Dell Direct Stores
    Use the locator map that pops up and look up Dell stores in the NYC area, seem to be a couple of them:)

    The Viewsonic and the Samsung monitors you link to are mighty nice (I'm researching those as well)...The Apple is more expensive (I think) due to the absolutely divine enclosure and a slightly different LCD panel technology, that reproduces colors better...a must for true design professionals.

    I just noticed that the Samsung you linked to is 4:3 aspect ratio...if 4:3 is OK w/ you, dive right in...but I personally enjoy my 16:9/16:10 widescreen aspect ratio.:)

    i'd like to buy a widescreen...
    the Viewsonic is also aspect ratio 4\3?

    about the acd,it is the best lcd monitor on the world(20inch)?

    Wikipedia has a good article on aspect ratio. You dont have to read through all the words, unless you want to...there are some images as you scroll down that will give you a visual representation of what the difference between 4:3 and 16:9 is.

    I see it as...4:3 is the past and 16:9 is the future. The Viewsonic is nicer, in my opinion, due to its 16:9 greatness:)

    The ACD is a great display, but hardly the finest in the world...there are others, I dont know them off the top of my head.

    I enjoy helping you in your decisionmaking, but I cannot walk you through the whole process, do some google research, find reviews, articles:)
