They're beautiful. And when they stare back at you in the same way, you can't wait to use them. LCD monitors were an exuberant buy a few years ago, but with modern technology having foisted a plethora of options to choose from today, they paved their way onto the desk of every tech-savvy. Today's top-notch monitors have built-in speakers, and are much bigger in terms of screen size. Their sleek, stylish, and absolutely flat screens are specially designed for hardcore gaming, high-definition movie viewing, and thousands of colors giving you an enriched feel every time you look into them. Prattling about them here is one thing. But when you watch them really, the experience is beyond par for their worth every penny you spend on them. With that quoted, four of the best LCD monitors this year round are enlisted below, with a brief about their specs. Give a read to 'em all, and select the one that's potential enough to become your identity.
1. Dell UltraSharp U2311H

All in all, at a price of just $300, you can't expect a better deal for a flat screen monitor.
2. Asus VG278H 3D Vision
MRP: $655
Highlight: 3D Graphics
Amused by the third dimension? Aren't you the lucky one to come across the Asus VG278H that boasts upon 3D graphics, and once you get addicted to watching movies in 3D, I'm sure you wouldn't want to turn back to those regular monitors. Pretty cheap amongst others here, this 27-inch model one comes with the NVIDIA 3D vision technology, and is totally a sight. The only con is, it doesn't have a USB port. However, with a 120Hz panel, feel proud of yourself for having considered Asus VG278H as your monitor pick. It won't leave you disheartened.
3. Lenovo ThinkVision LT1421
MRP: $199.99
Highlight: Budget-friendly
On a low budget? No problem. The Lenovo ThinkVision LT1421 delivers supreme performance even at a low price, for reviewers claim it is one of the lightest monitors you'll come across, but with a powerful overall performance. Simply stating, if you're not looking for any hullabaloo, this portable 14-inch treatise from Lenovo might astonish you with its awesome color graphics, 1,366x768 resolution, and matte finish that makes it anti-reflective. For a fairly low price of $199, it just amazes you.
4. Hewlett Packard 2509m
MRP: $299
Highlight: Best movie-watching experience
Another low-budget monitor from the HP clan, the all new 2509m comes with a 1920 x 1080/60Hz resolution, glossy screen, and vibrant colors make you want it more and more. The best thing about this 25 inch monitor is that it its true 16:9 ratio makes movie watching an enthralling experience. With zero blur, quick response, and fast processing, 2509m is, indeed, a lucrative buy. In face, a reputable site review quoted that the only thing that HP 2509m fails to do is make your breakfast in the morning!
 

Let me tell you that there ain't no ranking method for these monitors. They're put in here based on their performance and user reviews. If you're unsatisfied with the above, there are a few more options that you might want to consider, and who knows, you might stumble upon the one model you've been looking for. Take a look at the following as well:
  • ViewSonic VA2231wm 22-Inch
  • Samsung PX2370 ($500)
  • NEC MultiSync PA271W ($1350)
  • Dell S2209W 22-Inch
  • Samsung SyncMaster S27A850D ($750)
The most important factor to be kept in mind while buying an LCD monitor is its user-friendliness. Performance comes second, and looks come third. Well, price should be the last factor to be kept in mind, not to negate the fact that you should set a budget for yourself. However, this is the thing about technology - when you stumble upon a phenomenal piece of technology, it shouldn't come as a surprise if you raise the bar a bit. While the above-mentioned monitors outrank others of their kind, you should emphasize on getting a first-hand experience, than just plainly relying on reviews.
