Thinking about getting a second monitor? With monitor prices at a low, it's a great time to add a 2nd screen; with a little research you can now get two monitors for what you used to buy just one a couple of years ago...ViewSonic VX2253mh-LED $169 Full 1080p resolution and offering up to 40% in energy savings... what's not to like? LED with backlight and 30,000,000:1 contrast ratio. Comes with 2x HDMI inputs for the latest connection trend and it's ultra thin. Samsung 2494SW $259 Very good with the contrast and the colors seems vivid and the blacks look black. It's eco friendly with sensors to adjust brightness. It boast 1920 x 1080 resolution and has a response time of 5 ms, so it's very good performing fast moving graphics. Asus VS247H $189 The war in contrast ratio is on: 50,000,000:1 smart contrast ratio and LED technology. Very lightweight thanks in part to the slim design. The image display is very good with only some lag when playing very fast paced computer games.
