Like I said before, you must be clear in your mind, what is
it, that you want. That depends largely on how you plan
to use an LCD. Most of these mid-range monitors have both
a DVI and VGA out. But there is a marked difference, at-
least for me, when I switch between DVI and VGA. I would
never go back to VGA, having once used a DVI interface.
And yes, I have a graphics card with a DVI output, so I
didn't have to pop for a new graphics card.
If you want to read large text, or surf the net, then you
shouldn't worry about the finer aspects, like resolution
and response time, which come into play where video,
graphics and performance need to be punched to the max.
for sweet results.
You can buy a 19"-22" used Dell LCD from Techno City
for 5-10K. You won't need a graphics card, DVI input,
or anything of the sort. Just plug-n-play. Some of them
look pretty good and I myself was tempted to pick one
up from there. Why invest 15K, when you can get the
same technology in 1/3 price ?. The backlight could be
a problem with a used LCD, but that's a 50/50 chance.
I would second rokra and go look at the reception of
LCDs in your budget and pick one which you think looks
best to you. It's a tricky equation, when you have to
balance [wants-needs-priorities-availability]. All we can
suggest is the best option, for a given price range, in our
limited capacity. Best of luck to you bud.

PS: I only related my experience with, and opinion of, Czone.
You should go there yourself and scope out the joint. But I
wouldn't hold out much hope for after-sales service with that
