An excellent monitor with superb image quality...
The 20in widescreen monitor has become very popular over the past year or so, and it's easy to see why. With more and more games supporting widescreen aspect ratios, a decent size, widescreen display with a high, but still graphics card friendly resolutio...
Bottom line The SyncMaster 215TW may sport the same resolution as standard 20in widescreen monitors, but it outguns the competition in pretty much every area. The amount of inputs on offer is unprecedented and gives you the option of connecting gaming consoles and AV...

Over the years, LCDs have come a long way. Prices have dropped to the level where everyone can afford one, and the technology has progressed to the point where any generic monitor of today would be considered a "high-end gaming LCD" of yesteryear. No l...
