    Hello,

    My apologies if this seems like an obvious question, but do any of you have recommendations or important considerations for a good, cheap computer monitor for a PC-based DAW system? The system is below. I have a small amount of space, but hope to use two monitors. Thanks for any recommendations or considerations.

    Best,

    I would definitely go for an LCD - they use less power, are easier on the eyes, and do not create interference. Various companies are coming out with cheap LCDs lately, but i'm not sure of the quality of any of them. Gateway sells good quality refurbs, which is how I got my 19" LCD for $400 about a year ago; it's still going strong.

    I second Davids comment. LCDs are the way to go .... really a lot easier on the eys and they also generate less heat, which is something to consider, especially if you are in a smallish room.

    LCD's are the key :cool:
    My eyes don't get as tired as they used to, when I used a regular monitor.

    Best Regards,
