New Monitor Suggestions ?

I need to get a new monitor since mine left me (R.I.P.).

Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should look for and what I should pass on?

Truth be told, I'm not looking for an amazing monitor. Just something that doesn't hurt my eyes. In fact there's a 17-inch Phillips at Best Buy for $139 after a rebate...is this a bad thing?

Any help would be greatly appreciated -- thanks!!

Current best deal I'm aware of is an unadvertised special by CDW. 21" Trinitron made by Nokia (just bought out by Viewsonic) with a .24 aperature grill for $295

Ouch!

I appreciate the input, but I just don't want to spend that much money on a replacement monitor. Just want one that doesn't hurt my eyes too badly!

Check out the Samsung flatscreen models. I've used a 17" for about two years, and just recently purchased a 19" as well. Superb monitors, and I was able to get quite a deal on the 19" through the Dell website.

Unfortunately, the promotion I bought it under has since ended, but check them out and see what's going on currently. A good portion of the Samsung line is elligible for manufacturer's rebate as well.
