    Disclaimer: if this thread belongs elsewhere please relocate. Thanks

    So, I am without a monitor for my desktop pc and am suddenly in the market for one. Any suggestions on what I should get?

    Dual vs larger single screen
    touchscreen vs regular wide screen

    I am leaning toward a 27 inch non-touch, but I could be persuaded in other directions if the argument is sound.

    What say you?

    I have a dual monitor setup and wont go back to a single monitor, no matter what the size. It just depends on what your computing habbits/needs/wants are.

    Oh crap...I totally forgot that part. I'm using Samsung's S20B300 LED 1600 X 900, they're 20". I'm getting a 3rd one, great for gaming with a 3 monitor setup.

    How long have you had yours?

    I have heard that 5 years is the average life of a monitor now-a-days. Do you find that to be the case?

    I've not heard that. I had the Samsung setup roughly 3 years. I also have a few LCD 19" monitors on my other systems and there close to 8 and 12 years old...they work perfectly fine. I did buy one LCD 19" Gateway monitor second hand for a good price and it crapped out on me just over a year.

    I guess it really depends on the brand. Up til now I had an Acer, but I am looking at either Samsung or LG as a replacement.
