    Sad news :'c
    I was cleaning my desk, and I put my monitor on the side of it, and I accidentally got my foot caught on the power cord. I tripped over it and the monitor fell off the desk and hit the corner of my dresser. I put it back on the table, and turned it on, to find a pretty bad crack in the LCD.
    I'm not too sad about it, since it's pretty old (it came with my dell pc I bought in 2008.)

    Well I guess I need a new monitor. The problem is I don't exactly have a lot of money to spend, only about $100.
    Does anyone have any suggestions? The quality isn't too important, as long is it's at least 900 by 1440, or preferably 1080p

    Satisfied with a pair of Dell S2340L here. The monitor is 1080 IPS and as low as $140 a few times a year in my location. My impression is they are better than anything else at that price level. You could probably get one for less than $100 used.

    If you want something really cheap I'd recommend a used Samsung 226BW (22", DVI, 1680x1050 or 16x10), that was my old monitor and it was 7 years old and still working perfectly and I was going to get another for dual display but then a special Dell deal came up. The "S" type LCD panel they used in the first versions of this old Samsung monitor is better than what they used in the later versions.
