Get a Dell LCD instead.  If you find the right deal, you can get a nice Dell one for that price.

What exactly are you looking for?  Are you looking for a LCD monitor or a projector?  If you're looking for a LCD monitor, I would stick w/ Dell, Viewsonic, Samsung, and Sony.  If you have the money, I must say Apple makes the nicest LCDs.  

As for as size goes, it really depends on your budget and what you're going to be using it for.  If you're using it for gaming, a bigger screen is nice, but too big may give you headaches during 1st person shooters.  If you're just web browsing, a large monitor is not necessary.  If you watch a lot of movies or do video editing, a large screen is a must.


Also, for future reference, we do not allow ****y links here.

...and welcome to GTF!

first, when posting links to **** stuff, you wanna use the url tag so that **** dosnt get censored out. no biggie though. Secondly, as far as i can tell, size DOES matter. you cant get an lcd bigger than the size of the projector, so be careful. if you get one that is too big, you get cropping and only a portion of your screen is visible. you get one thats too small and you just get a white band around the edge, and it isnt efficiently using the space (the white band can be fixed with some black tape, but its still wasteful :P)

EDIT: yah, why dont we allow ****y links? just out of curiousity- i never found out.
