Which 21"/20" monitor should I get?

Post by kendall sh » Sat, 02 Mar 1996 04:00:00

I am considering these

sony 20se or sony 20sfII for about $2000


nanoa fx-21 for about $3500


viewsonic for about $1600

which of these or others do you recommend. I will get accelerated X
and either a #9 imagine or matrox millenium graphics card.

I also hope to use such things as autocad and photoshop.

    Nanao, and stay away from the Matrox ... last I heard X won't support
   due to non-disclosure-agreement requirement ...

That's not true: it's only XFree86 which doesn't support the Matrox;
you'd need to get a commercial version, whose cost ($100) shouldn't
bother you at all if you're buying that kind of equipment :-)

1. Seeking 20" and 21" Monitor Recommendation

I'm currently shopping for a 20" or 21" monitor for a linux system. I was
thinking about the NEC XE21 but I see that it will only run to 1280x1024 at
60Hz. Does anyone have any experience with this monitor or others running at
this rate, or any suggestions of a better choice? Thanks.
