    Any recommendations for a 20" Monitor, used for doing a lot of typing and watching HD? Thanks in advance for your help--

    What kind of HD are you watching? 720p or 1080p? If it is only 720p, then that HP monitor can certainly handle that resolution. If you are looking for 1080p, I believe there no monitors that support that resolution at 20".

    Aha! Didn't know that. Thanks. In that case, would anyone have any recommendations for 24" monitors, besides Apple's?

    Well it really depends on how much you want to spend, and what you want to do with it. I really like the Dell Ultrasharp series, and I have the 27" one.

    If you are just watching movies and doing word processing, and you don't care about large viewing angles and print color accuracy, then a lot of Samsungs will fit your bill. Also, take a look at the BenQ V2400W, it supposedly has one of the best TN panels around, and one of the most unique designs I've ever seen.
