What is your favorite brand of PC monitor? And what is your favorite aspect ratio for a monitor? 16:4 widescreen or 4:3 etc? My favorite brand is AG Neovo and I like using the widescreen ones!

Belinia used to mine in the CRT days, not sure what I would choose now. I have got a Hanns-G 21 inch widescreens 16:9, but not sure if i would say it is my favorite. i like Acer, I got old Acer 4:3 TFT, which still works fine.

I suppose if I had to go for one it would be Iiyama.

i prefer 16:9 for doing my video editing, but strange as it may seem, for other stuff I prefer 4:3

Funny how times change...in the old days iiyama was king for quality monitors found in graphics and design...now where are they, producing cheap generic flatscreens.

The higher end of the Dell widescreen range for me now.

Lacie make nice monitors but they are expensive. Their old CRT monitors were very nice quality even if it took two people to carry one. I paid about 800 for one and sold it last year on ebay for 1.

Now I use a Dell 24 inch widescreen for my primary monitor and samsung 22 inch for the secondary.

You beat me to it, I loved my CRT Iiyama monitors, the 17" and 19" were really good.

Thes days we use Dell and Acer. I use a 27" Acer now, my lad is running two 27" Dell Ultrasharps. In my radio shack I've a BenQ set up for use with laptops and its very good indeed, punches well above its price would suggest.

I love the Apple Thunderbolt Displays but they are really expensive and I have no need for one unless I buy the new Mac Pro when it comes out or if I won the lotto, whichever comes first I've also had Packard Bell, Fujitsu Siemens and LG monitors and out of those only the Packard Bell one from the 90s has snuffed it. The LG is the only flatscreen monitor I have and it's pretty good.

Asus Monitors are my current favourites......A lot of monitor manufacturers are beginning to use the same panels as each other these days. For example my Asus has a Samsung PLS panel.

I have no brand loyalty or favourite. I currently have a 27 inch Acer which is great but I got it because it was on an end of line clearance sale.

I have an AoC widescreen, 24 inch, never failed me. I had a cheap Hans Spree before, and that also lasted until it was upgraded (still working I would assume).

I did try running through my 42 inch LCD tv, and even though it was able to support 1920x1080 at 60Hz, it just felt too big. I think a 24 is my limit.

I have an LG 22" LCD 1080p monitor and I like it. A couple of colleagues have BenQ monitors, and they look pretty good.
