Some people said Dell 2407 0r Samsung 244t were good.

But I used to think dell are craps.
And Samsung is from Korea.

Any Ideas?

Whats wrong with Korea? Samsung makes most of the panels in LCDs today, so i wouldnt write them off.

Because the end product would cost 10x as much? The same reason any other manufacturer outsources to China?

It all depends on Price and warranty:
I would go with DELL, or ACD's. Unless you find a better deal.

roomate bought a Samsung 20" DVI LCD for his Powerbook. Cost him $500 Retail @ Best buy cause he hates waiting for anything to be delivered. :eek:
I found the same display online a week later for $320 SHIPPED :eek:
I think with Samsung you get a 3 year warranty.

With the Dell 20" you can get coupons that bring the price down even more from their posted price of around $370ish. YOU can get a warranty of 5 Years with the dell displays for a tiny extra cost. Thats more than worth it.
24" is around $750
30" for $1700

All are almost identical to the ACD except for the casings and USB Ports.
