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.

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:)

Samsung SyncMaster 19" Flat-Panel TFT-LCD Monitor
-Widescreen
-4ms respsonse time
-but only 1440 x 900 resolution

Best of all, $200!

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" +

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.:)

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:)
